Right now, you’ll find a number of Kindles all on sale – we’ve put together a list of deals below.
If you’re weighing up between buying a Kindle for reading and a tablet that’s also capable of streaming and internet browsing, bear in mind that the entire Fire range is also on sale right now.

Is Black Friday 2021 a good time to buy a Kindle?
It’s a safe bet that every Kindle model will be discounted at some point during the Black Friday sales, so it’s an excellent time to be shopping for one.
The key to getting a good deal on a Kindle is to identify the model you want early and keep an eye on prices in the run up to Black Friday.
You can also check out sites such as CamelCamelCamel, which keep a record of the price changes on Amazon and can help you sniff out the best deals.

There are a few types of Kindle currently on the market, so it’s best to decide which one is the right one for you before you hit the sales.
Take a look at the full range below or read our guide on the best Kindle you can buy in 2021.
The standard e-reader is the most basic model Kindle offers.
It allows users to pick from thousands of titles, as well as sync their device to Bluetooth headphones and speakers to listen to audiobooks.
It has a long battery and a special no-glare screen which can be read even in direct sunlight.
While the adjustable front light lets you read comfortably for hours, indoors and outdoors, day and night.
The Paperwhite is pretty close to reading an actual book, with a screen that replicates the look of paper and can be read in all lights, including in the dark.
The screen includes a backlight for those night-time insomniac readers and for those who simply can’t put books down when they get exciting.
The Oasis is effectively an upgraded Paperwhite with a fresh design and the added bonus of being waterproof making it perfect for reading in the bath or by the pool.
It starts with double the amount of memory of the two cheaper models (8GB) and can also be upgraded to have a 32 or even 64GB hard drive to store the maximum amount of content.
The latest 8GB Kindle Oasis now comes with adjustable warm light allows you to shift screen shade from white to amber. Like its previous version it is waterproof meaning you can read it in the bath or by the pool.
Kindle Kids Edition is perfect if you want to get your little ones into reading.
It’s geared for reading books so has no games, ads or videos and zero distractions.
It also has glare-free black and white display and weeks of battery life for hassle-free reading.
