You can get an absolute bargain on the previous-generation Kindle Paperwhite in today's early Black Friday deals at Amazon - currently retailing for just £79.99 (was £149.99)

That's a whopping 47% off and almost half price for a 32GB Kindle that's still a fantastic e-reader for 2021. What makes this one particularly good value (as opposed to the latest version) is that it's a larger 32GB capacity model - perfect for stocking up on literally thousands of titles at once.

It's also still fully waterproof, features a nicely sharp 300 ppi brightness display, and a battery life that can last up to six weeks on a single charge. Really the only thing you're missing on this older model is the adjustable warm light filter on the new version as well as slightly narrower side bezels - something that's more than an acceptable trade-off considering the price difference and extra storage here.

Better still, this price makes this Kindle Paperwhite only £10 more than the standard Kindle e-reader. In short, it's a bargain - although it's worth noting the standard Kindle has yet to receive any Black Friday deals just yet.

If you're interested in more of this week's early offers from Amazon, you can head over to our main Amazon Black Friday deals page. This retailer has now officially launched its campaign for November so definitely make sure you bookmark that page - there's a whole month of deals to come yet.
