You can bag the Amazon Kindle with a huge 43% price cut applied, a fact that means it costs £39.99 right now rather than £69.99. That's a straight saving of £30 and the cheapest price the Kindle has retailed for. The world's most popular ereader discounted.

The Kindle ereader platform is so good as it grants access to millions of books, newspapers and audiobooks through the Kindle Store, while Amazon Prime members get automatic free access to thousands of titles.

We've reviewed the full range of Amazon Kindle devices, from this model through the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition and Amazon Kindle Oasis, and each has delivered a great ereader experience.

This original model is great if you just want to read books and listen to audiobooks, and aren't too fussed about fancy features. It's available here for a great price with ads, but you can also bag the same deal without ads for an extra tenner.

The cheapest price here is confirmed by independent price tracking service camelcamelcamel, which lists the £39.99 as the lowest price.
