All right, I say to myself, I’m wrong.
It’s the last day of Prime Day 2021, and with incredible deals on everything from beauty to the fantastic swamp roll, it looks like Amazon is sending this year’s sale with a bang.
And while I’ve already filled my basket with enough skin care, alcohol and Yankee candles to last me a lifetime, there’s a Prime Day purchase I’ve been thinking about for the past two years and counting: a Kindle.
As a book lover, I’ve always been skeptical of eReaders – don’t they enjoy navigating the shelves of a bookstore? Don’t I miss turning the pages? Well, I’m glad to confirm that once I closed the lockdown and couldn’t just get into my local library, all my previous snobbery and purist smuggling went out the window, and I was left sincerely sorry for myself.
Amazon Prime Day Kindle Deals: Quick Links
So I finally bit the bullet and bought a Kindle. Here, I admit it: I was wrong and everyone who has had it in the last decade was right. Because you can’t just download news instantly, books are cheaper and you can take them anywhere with you (something that’s sure to prove a bit life-saving, since I move apartments once a year).
Oh, and did I mention that I took it for over 30% off for Prime Day? OK, so maybe I’m still one little joke.
Here’s the Prime Day Kindle deal to kick off early at midnight tonight. (Opt for Paperwhite.)
Kindle Paperwhite, 8 GB –
it was £ 119.99, now £ 79.99 (save 33%)
Waterproof, with a glare-free display and a single battery charge that lasts for weeks, the Kindle Paperwhite now has a £ 40 discount until midnight tonight – and will go straight into my basket. Now it also comes with Audible, so I can pair it with Bluetooth headphones and listen to books on my work. I knew it would take a very special e-reader to become a convert, and that’s ticking all the boxes.
Kindle Paperwhite, 32GB –
it was £ 149.99, now £ 109.99 (save 27%)
This has all the above-mentioned advantages of Paperwhite, but with more storage – making it the perfect choice for magazine and comic book lovers. Now a whopping £ 40 until midnight, this is one of the best Prime Day Kindle deals we’ve seen, so don’t miss it.
was £ 69.99, now £ 49.99 (save 29%) See the deal
You can’t beat a classic. For the rest of today alone, Amazon is offering their beloved original Kindle for £ 20 off and frankly, it’s worth every penny. It now comes with an integrated front light that is designed for reading, so you can comfortably read for hours on end.
