It’s Amazon’s thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, with a sleek, modern design so you can read comfortably for hours. It features our signature 300 ppi, glare-free Paperwhite display, laser-quality text, and twice the storage of the previous generation. Plus a single battery charge lasts weeks, not hours, so you can binge your books without worrying about a dead battery.

Other Kindle sales include: 

If you’re a Prime member and you haven’t tried Kindle Unlimited yet, you can also get a 3-month Kindle Unlimited free trial thanks to a sweet early deal. After that it’s $13.99 a month and you can cancel anytime.

To access the major sales, you’ll need to get yourself a Prime account. It’s free to trial for the first 30 days but will cost you $6.99 per month after the trial’s up. You might find that you already have one since a Prime subscription includes access to Prime Video, Prime Music and Prime Reading. Plus, once you’re signed up you get free fast delivery on any items purchased through Amazon.

If you’re not planning on using Prime after the sale’s done and dusted, just remember to cancel your subscription.
