Amazon's Kindle readers and Fire tablets are on sale right now

Save up to $30 on the Fire 7 tablet and Kindle.

There isn't a better time than now to dive right into a good book or stream your favorite content from music to TV. I'm a Fire tablet owner, so watching Netflix, reading a book and catching up on older podcasts has been a joy on a nice budget.

The Fire 7 tablet is currently $40 on Amazon, saving you $10. And if you're looking for tech that simply has the functionality to store your digital books and stream Audible, then the basic Kindle model is $60, which is $30 off its original price. (The other products in the Kindle and Fire lines are also on sale, but those discounts aren't quite as good as recent deals, which were at their Prime Day prices or better.) Both are great deals that will end soon, so hop over to Amazon and strike before these deals end.

This Fire 7 tablet is usually $50, but it's currently discounted to $40. That's not at its all-time Black Friday or Prime Day lows ($30 and $35, respectively), but getting a fully functional tablet at this price is nothing to sneeze at. The Fire 7 should last up to 7 hours when you're reading, watching videos or browsing online. It's a 2019 model, but it's still fine for basic media consumption.

The baseline Kindle deal is on Amazon for $60, saving you $30. Right now, this Kindle is back at its lowest price ever and is an easy choice for a distraction-free e-reader. This Kindle has a glare-free display, allowing you to read comfortably no matter where you are -- indoors or outdoors, day or night. The battery can last weeks, rather than hours, and you can do all the things you could with a paperback, like highlighting passages. The best thing about this Kindle is unlike a paperback, if you need to look up definitions, translate words or adjust the text size, it's built into the e-reader so that you'll never need to leave the page.
