This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

If you ever consider purchasing a dedicated e-reader, Amazon will think again Big discounts On some Kindle e-readers as part of Prime Day 2020. Now that it’s up and running, you can get $ 50 Kindle Paperwhite, which makes it less than $ 80 – just $ 5 off the product’s previous low price ever. We think it’s going to be a particularly popular deal on Prime Day.

Prime Day is also a good time to consider the Kids’ version of Kindle for beginners. You can save $ 35 off the list price of $ 110 and also get free status and a year of Amazon’s Kid Plus subscription service, valued at $ 36.

In addition, Amazon will provide a $ 5 credit for “any Kindle book” with the purchase of certain Kindle devices.

Like most other Prime Day sales, it is expected to start Tuesday October 13 at 12:01 AM PDT and run up to 48 hours. If you didn’t see the deal you were hoping for, don’t lose hope – experience has shown us that there are likely to be other Prime Day Kindle deals to come.

It’s unclear if Kindle Oasis or the basic Kindle (non-kids version) will also go on sale, but we’ll keep an eye on their pricing because Amazon often gives up previously undisclosed deals (plus a lightning deal or two) on its Prime Day devices.

This is moderate in Amazon Line and choose the current CNET Editors in this category. Here are some of the things we love about Kindle Paperwhite:

  • It is 10% thinner and lighter than the previous version.
  • It features a “front flow” design with a back made of a softer and more holdable material instead of a hard plastic.
  • It’s Kindle is completely waterproof, like the high-end model Kindle Oasis, And it has a plastic screen that Amazon says is crack and scratch resistant.
  • It has Bluetooth technology built in, so you can download and listen to Amazon Audible audiobooks with wireless headphones.

Note that Amazon can update Kindle Paperwhite in 2020 (released November 2018). If and when it did, it is not clear how much to upgrade. For example, USB-C charging can be added and maybe the lighting scheme can be updated, but we don’t expect any exciting upgrades. Read our Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review (2018).

The most recent iteration of … Amazon The entry-level e-book reader, which Amazon simply calls Kindle, now has a self-lit screen and an improved design. We prefer the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has a high-resolution display (text and images appear sharper), is water resistant and has a slightly better lighting scheme. But if you don’t want to spend a lot on an e-reader, the standard Kindle is a good choice, especially when it’s on discount.

Most people will be happy with Paperwhite’s affordable feature for reading Kindle eBooks and basic Kindle needs, but if you want the best with an anti-glare display – and don’t mind paying a premium for it – Oasis is arguably the thing when it comes to an excellent e-book device. $ 175 is a good price for it.
