You’ve bought those designer jeans. You snagged that top-rated coffee maker. The next greatest thing on your Prime Day shopping list? A great book (or two), or even an Audible subscription (or two) at a super-deep discount. This Prime Day has a bevy of book-related bargains (and of course some Kindle sales). To help you figure out what’s best for you, we’ve rounded up the best Audible and book deals.
Prime Day Kindle deals
Kindle Paperwhite ($79.99, originally $129.99; amazon.com)
Now at its lowest price ever for Prime Day, the Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, has a glare-free display that reads like real paper, can sync up with Audible and has a battery life that lasts weeks, not hours.
Kindle ($54.99, originally $89.99; amazon.com)
A more basic model that’s still great, this Kindle is now at its lowest price ever as well. It’s got a glare-free display, and you can adjust the brightness to your liking. As with any Kindle device, the charge lasts basically forever.
Kindle Oasis ($204.99, originally $269.99; amazon.com)
The snazziest Kindle model there is, the Oasis comes with an adjustable warm light that makes night reading even easier — not to mention that it’s also waterproof and has the slimmest 7-inch display.
Kindle Kids Edition ($64.99, originally $109.99; amazon.com)
An excellent gift for kids (if we may say so ourselves), the Kindle Kids Edition not only comes with cute colorful covers but is designed with parental controls.
