For many avid readers, Amazon's lineup of Kindles are essential pieces of hardware, allowing them to carry thousands of books while on the move.
If you've been holding off getting a Kindle and waiting for a sale, then now's the time to bite, with the standard Kindle, and waterproof Paperwhite Kindle both being offered at a substantial discount this Black Friday. If you want to impress your fellow readers with the ultimate Kindle, the rather premium Oasis model, then bad luck, as it's not currently included in the Black Friday deals, and retains its hefty $250 asking price.
Amazon has a range of Kindles aimed at different types of readers. We guide you through the right models to buy, and the prices you can expect to pay.
