Bookworm or not, if you got an e-Reader, then you got a reason to celebrate. E-readers are getting cheaper by the day and the latest to cut cost is Sony.

The company has reduced the price of its Sony Reader WiFi to $129.99. Termed as the world’s lightest 6-inch e-Reader, the device had opened for pre-order at a price of $149.99 two months ago.

Along with the drop in price, the company is also offering a trade-in program for the consumers. The users will get a $50 credit for the new Reader WiFi, if they give the company their old e-Reader, irrespective of the manufacturer brand, before this December ends.

That’s a sweet deal, isn’t it? Moreover, you can have free e-Book access along with the purchase of the Sony e-Reader.
