As per the title, I am seriously thinking of breaking into the tech savvy way of reading. Are they on sale anywhere that anyone knows of?

You can go through Amazon or go on ebay.com.au there are plenty for sale there. I got my paperwhite from there for pretty much the same price as if I had got it from the US

I got mine from Amazon last year, and it's at least $10 cheaper this year, just $89.  I love it, and read all the time.

Have just been told they Are $99 at D& ck Smith at the moment! Going to go check them out tomorrow. Tough I seem to read a lot of conflicting no comparing the kindle to the Sony ereader or the Kobo.

Depends which kindle u want
I bought my MIL a kindle touch from Kmart or Big W last year.

Personally if you are a reader and getting an ebook reader I would go the kindle. You can get software that convert other ebook formats for your kindle if that is a worry.

Kindle may be more expensive but its worth it IMO

If you are going to get a kindle and you tend to read at night it may be worth getting the paperwhite as its got a lit screen ... i can read at night now without disturbing DH at all which is great

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
