Save £20 on the Kindle Paperwhite – Amazon's best-value waterproof ereader

The Amazon Spring Sale has kicked off today and Amazon's own devices are front and centre. We're super excited to see the Kindle Paperwhite price come crashing down, especially as it's the all-new waterproof version which we think is the best value ereader on the planet right now. So as you can imagine, we like it even more thanks to a £20 discount.

That's the best price it's been this year, it was a further £10 cheaper around Black Friday, but we don't expect that deal to come back around until Amazon Prime Day 2019 in the summer at the earliest.

This is the latest in the Kindle Paperwhite line, but Amazon is also about to launch an updated version of the standard entry-level Kindle. Unlike the previous cheapest Kindle, it will now include a backlit screen, just like the fancier Paperwhite and Oasis models. It's £10 more expensive than the older one's RRP too.

The screen resolution is still pretty low at just 167ppi compared to the Paperwhite's far clearer 300ppi. This model is out in a few days' time for £69.99, but we'd seriously recommend going with this Paperwhite deal instead thanks to the better screen, slicker design, double storage and waterproofing. 

And don't forget, a waterproof ereader isn't just safer for reading in the bath, but we feel safer with it when travelling. Especially if you've ever been betrayed by a leaky drinks bottle in your bag!
