Are you an avid reader who’s been toying with the idea of finally switching from tangible books to a commute-friendly Kindle? Well, today might be a great day to take the plunge. For a limited time, Amazon Prime members can score $30 off Kindle, Kindle PaperwhiteKindle for Kids bundle, and Kindle Voyage; as well as $50 off the Kindle Oasis.

With this discount, the standard Kindle is only $50. The only caveat is that it comes with “special offers” or advertisements that appear on the lock screen. It is available in two colors (black and white), and each glare-free touchscreen model is able to hold thousands of books and comes with a battery that lasts for weeks without charging. A model without special offers is available as well—it costs $70 with the discount.

If you’re someone who prefers to read under the blanket or in the dark when your partner goes to bed, you might want to spend a few extra dollars on the Kindle Paperwhite, which comes with a blacklit display. Originally $120, it’s on sale for $90, and also comes in black and white. To get rid of the special offers, add an extra $20; to get free unlimited 3G connectivity, add an extra $70.

For parents trying to wean their kids off screen-time, there's the Kindle for Kids bundle, a colorful Kindle that comes with parental control features and a two year worry-free guarantee. 

For Kindle’s highest resolution e-reader, there’s the Kindle Voyage, on sale for $170. And for the ultra luxe readers—there’s the Kindle Oasis on sale for $310—$50 off the regular selling price. The top of the line reader comes with free 3G connectivity, a battery that lasts for months, and an included leather charging case.

Ordered your Kindle but don’t know where to start reading? Here, the best new books for October.
