The highly anticipated Amazon Prime Day sale has arrived and if you're looking for a bargain on its best-selling Kindle e-reader, then you've come to the right place. Prime members can score the Kindle Paperwhite at a record low price of just $79.99 (opens in new tab) (was $129.99).

If you're looking for something for the kiddos, Amazon also has the Kindle Kids Edition on sale for $74.99 (opens in new tab) (was $109.99).

The Kindle Paperwhite features a glare-free 6-inch display and twice the storage of the previous generation. The handheld e-reader is also thinner and lighter than previous models and has a battery that will last for weeks on a single charge. Perhaps the coolest feature of the all-new Paperwhite, though, is its IPX8 water resistance protection, so you can enjoy reading your Kindle at the beach, pool, or in the bath, and not worry about it getting wet.

As we've mentioned, this is the best deal we've seen for the e-reader, and $5 less than the all-time low price we saw at last year's Prime Day sale. This is a limited-time offer, and you must be an Amazon Prime member to snag this deal. Not a member? You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here (opens in new tab) so you can shop this deal and other stellar Prime Day offers.
