We won't waste your time by describing the Kindle because by now Amazon's e-reader is well known, offering literally unlimited books (and magazines and whatever else) that can be taken anywhere. As if that wasn't good enough, Amazon has knocked over 30% off the price as part of its Prime Day deals bonanza.
- Grab Amazon's Kindle for £44.99, a saving of 36%, from Amazon
- Grab Amazon's Kindle Oasis for £159.99, a 30% saving, from Amazon
Okay, we said we wouldn't but here's some background for the uninitiated: Amazon's standard Kindle is basically the perfect way to read books. It's small enough to hold for long periods with one hand, has a decent-resolution backlit display, and enough storage for hundreds, if not thousands, of books.

The Kindle Oasis steps things up a notch, offering a much more luxurious experience alongside a bunch of other nifty features. For example, the Oasis is waterproof (making the top picture a bit less stressful), includes a 300dpi display, and an adjustable backlight.
If you're a bit into reading, we reckon the Kindle will be absolutely fine, but if you love reading, the Oasis is the best and brightest e-reader out there. Or dimmest if you prefer. And with Amazon's Prime Day discounts, you can't really go wrong.
