As usual, Amazon is selling its own electronics at reduced prices for Prime Days — including the best Kindles. If you’re like me and believe that real books are good but digital books are better, then Amazon Prime Day is a perfect time to save big on the company's top-rated e-readers.
Right now, you can get the Kindle Paperwhite (2021) for $94 at Amazon. This isn't the lowest I've seen this e-reader sell for, but you're still saving a good amount from its regular $139 price. Considering this is a device I use just about every day, it's one I can easily recommend to fellow bookworms. This latest version of Kindle Paperwhite is the best yet.

The Kindle Paperwhite features a 6-inch display that’s flush with the device, giving the e-reader a sleek and uniform look. The display is a sharp 300 ppi that’s perfect for reading novels and even manga. Best of all, the glare-free screen almost looks like paper, even if you’re reading it under direct sunlight. The 5 LED front lights also provide excellent visibility when reading in a darker environment.
This model comes with 8GB of storage. That might not seem like much, but I can assure you that this is enough to store thousands of standard e-books on the device. And for a limited time, you can try as many books as you like since this Kindle Paperwhite comes with 3 free months of Kindle Unlimited — which is like the Netflix for e-books. This service spotlights a lot of books from independent publishers, which is great if you want to read something different and fresh.
Given that the Kindle Paperwhite is an Amazon product, it’s not surprising to see the device receive such a steep discount during Prime Day. Still, if you’re in the market for an e-reader, this is the device I would personally recommend to everyone. The Kindle Paperwhite is so good that you may not ever go back to reading physical books again! Definitely take advantage of this deal while it lasts.
