This is our 2nd Auction. The first Auction was won at a very low price of 76KP$, with most bidders spending less than 500KP$. Which means that if you only have 500KP$, you could well have won the Auction yourself! So come and join us in the bidding!

At stake is the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. Tom's Hardware describes it as possibly the best e-book reader in the market. I have used it personally, and concur with that observation. It is a must have for the ardent reader, especially if reading in bed at night is a habit you cannot quite get rid of! And in my humble opinion, it is much better to give a child a Kindle e-book reader than an iPad or other tablets, because the child can only use it to read, and not get addicted to games or acquire undesirable social habits. Also, the e-ink display is less taxing on the eyes, allowing kids to read for as long as they want with no more stress on their eyes as would paper-based books. Even better, the device is lighter than a paperback, so it won't take up weight at all as you lug it around.

Gentle reminder on the Kindle auction tonight at 10pm!

New rules on refunds make the auction risk-free even if you don't win! If you have less than 1000KP$ or make more than 100 bids, you will get full refund for everything you spent in the bidding process. So just come and join in the fun.
