I've been an avid reader since I was a little girl. I always have a book (or two) going; it's an integral part of my life. I can't imagine a day without reading part of a book. But since I got my Kindle Paperwhite, I can't even bear to read paper books anymore. The Kindle is such a vast improvement over the experience of reading actual books, I won't go back. And you can experience that too with this Prime Day deal, which knocks the price down to $95 on Amazon.

Snag a Kindle Paperwhite and never touch actual paper again

Lighter than a single paperback book, the Kindle Paperwhite's screen is better than paper. The flush-front design and 300 PPI glare-free display look a lot like real paper. You can even read it easily in bright sunlight. Since it's backlit, you won't need a lamp for reading in the dark at night, which your partner will likely appreciate. You can also shift the color of the screen from white to amber for nighttime reading. Adjust the font and size to suit your taste and vision level. Not sure what a word means? Tap on it to get a definition.

Best of all, the Kindle Paperwhite holds thousands of books. Download Kindle books from Amazon, or borrow books from your local library with apps like Libby by Overdrive. If you like to read on your iPhone and/or iPad, the Kindle app syncs your place on all of your devices so you can seamlessly switch between them.

The base model Kindle Paperwhite does include ads, but they are just on the lock screen and aren't intrusive and never pop up while you're reading. If you don't want them on your lock screen, you can pay a small one-time fee to remove them. If you're in the U.K., you can get the Kindle Paperwhite for 35% off, just £85.
