We're just a turn of the page from Prime Day right now, it begins tomorrow! There are however already plenty of deals to be had. Here we’ve rounded up the best Kindle and e-reader deals from the pre-Amazon Prime Day sale.
There are six Kindle models you can find: Kindle, Kindle Oasis, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition and Kindle Kids Edition. Whichever you choose in the sale, we think there's absolutely nothing better than sitting outside in the sun with a cold drink and reading your next favourite book.
As Prime Day (or Big Deal Days as the October event is called)is an Amazon-run event, Amazon’s line of products normally gets the best discounts. That was definitely the case this year with pretty much every model of Amazon's e-reader on offer.
Some deals are already going, as you'll see from our highlighted selections below. The best deals tend to flit between each model so if you have a particular Kindle in mind but can't see an awesome deal for it yet, it's worth checking back in regularly. Alternatively add your preferred item to the basket and get Alexa to notify you on any discounts.

What to expect from Prime Day Kindle deals 2023
If you’re unsure what Kindle is right for you, check out our guide to the best Kindle.
The Kindle Scribe lets you take notes on its 10.2-inch screen, perfect for those who like to keep a diary or journal. You can even send them via email to your PC or anywhere else.
The Kindle Paperwhite is one of the most popular Kindles you can find and has tons of innovative features including anti-glare, waterproofing (in case you drop it in the pool/ocean) and tons of storage. In our opinion, the Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader on the market and it's bound to drop at some point from its original price of £139.99
While the standard Kindle is the most basic option you can find, it does exactly what you need it to and doesn’t distract you with too many features. It’s the best budget e-reader you can find at just £79.99 but could go even lower.
One of the best early Prime Day deals from this year has been on Kindle Unlimited. Kindle Unlimited is a book subscription service that gives users access to millions of books, magazine subscriptions and audiobooks. While Prime Reading comes with your Prime membership, Kindle Unlimited is an additional service that you’ll have to sign up to separately to give you more access to more books. Until the 13th July, Prime members can get 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for free. Prime members can also get 3 months of Audible for free and 4 months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free. See Kindle Unlimited, Audible and Amazon Music Unlimited Prime Day deals for all the details.
Of course, you won’t get much use out of a Kindle without any books on it! The Kindle Store (which is accessible via the Kindle app or your Kindle device) lets you buy and keep thousands of books, audiobooks and magazines. The Kindle Store runs Daily Deals so you can find cheap prices on new books every day. Some of the top authors will have their best titles on sale. Select titles go for as low as 99p so we recommend you treat yourself to some of these when you buy a new Kindle. It’s also worth looking to see if there are any deals on book series. On Black Friday, many book stores (including Amazon) were selling book collections for cheap prices so keep an eye out for that this Prime Day, and hopefully without the Black Friday crowds too.
