Few e-readers can beat those in Amazon’s Kindle lineup, especially if you’re someone already embedded in the Amazon ecosystem. And now, two of our favorite models — especially the entry-level Kindle and the latest Kindle Paperwhite — are on sale for Prime Day. You can now buy the 2022 Kindle on Amazon with ads starting at an all-time low of $64.99 ($35 off). Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite, meanwhile, is available on Amazon starting at $89.99 with 8GB of storage and ads. Remember that these deals are exclusive to Prime members only.
On its own, the latest Kindle offers great value for money, so today’s Prime Day deal on the popular ebook reader seems like a standout. In many ways, Amazon’s latest Kindle acts as a slightly stripped-down version of the Kindle Paperwhite from 2021. Both share a crisp 300ppi display along with USB-C support for relatively fast charging. Surprisingly, though, the base model starts with a healthy 16GB of storage, which is double the Paperwhite. The six-inch display of the base Kindle also makes the e-reader easy to hold in one hand or even slip into your pocket.
There are tradeoffs, though. The Kindle isn’t waterproof like the Paperwhite, so you have to be careful with it when you’re around water. It also doesn’t come with the Paperwhite’s warm white front light, which makes reading at night a lot easier – especially if the latter’s display is larger than 6.8 inches. If these are the kind of features that appeal to you, you might want to take advantage of the Kindle Paperwhite deal.
