Calling all book lovers! If you're itching to breeze through your reading list and carry your entire library in the palm of your hand, there's a major Amazon Kindle sale happening now that we need to put on your radar. Prime Big Deal Days (October 10 through October 11) features a bunch of Kindle models marked down, including the best-selling Kindle Paperwhite (on sale from $145 to $95). So now's the time to take on those spooky dark academia reads on your TBR list or start a whole new series with ease, all for a fraction of the price.

In case you haven't already ditched physical books for a Kindle, let us tell you all about the game-changing reading device. For one, the Kindle allows you to store all your books in one lightweight device (ahem, no more lugging your heavy hardcovers to the coffee shop—just grab your device and go). Better yet, you can also highlight and save passages, look up definitions, translate words and adjust the text size to your liking—all perks you definitely don't get with an old school page-turner. (BTW, depending on the type of Kindle you get, it's likely to have even more features, from water-resistance to digital note-taking abilities.) Simply put, the Kindle is all about convenience and optimization, ensuring that you always have the best reading experience whenever and wherever you choose to.

Remember, the full sales for Prime Big Deal Days are available to Prime members only (so be sure to sign up for a free trial if you don't already have a Prime account). Here’s a rundown of top-rated Kindle devices that you can score savings on right now.
