If your loved one is a keen reader, you could consider giving them a Kindle this Valentine’s Day.
While, admittedly, using an e-reader isn’t the same as curling up with a physical book, they do offer a way to take your book collection with you, whether you are commuting or on holiday. Unlike standard tablets, dedicated e-readers also provide enough battery life to keep going for days without the need for a charge.
If this sounds like an appealing option before Valentine’s Day, Amazon has launched a sale on a range of Kindle kits. One we particularly like is an Essentials bundle with a 2022 Kindle. You can save $46 — or 27% — on the bundle, which normally retails for around $170. While the sale continues, you can purchase the bundle for $124.
The Kindle Essentials bundle includes a 2022 Kindle model, equipped with a 6-inch, anti-glare 300 ppi resolution display, 16GB storage, and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Amazon says you can expect to up six weeks of battery life on a single charge with casual use. The kit also includes a cover and power adapter.
We’ve chosen the ad-free version as, at the time of writing, deliveries are available quickly. However, you can also choose a lockscreen ad-supported device, with savings of $46 and a total cost of $104 — although deliveries may be slower, depending on your location.

Alternatively, if you are thinking about a Kindle for one of your kids, Amazon has you covered. The company is offering $70 off an e-reader bundle complete with a 16GB Kindle Paperwhite Kids and a 12-month subscription to the Amazon Kids+ service.
For a limited time, the price of the Amazon Kids bundle has dropped from $203 to $133.
Amazon has a vast array of Kindles and e-reader bundles on sale right now. If you head over to the deals page, you will find Signature edition savings bundles, Essential kits, and a variety of cases in different colors.
