We all made promises to ourselves this year, when it became clear we were going to spend more time than ever at home: learn a language, finish knitting that afghan, organize the closets, purge the cupboards. Forgive yourself for whatever you haven’t done.

Experts have said over and over that living with the stress and worry of 2020 is wearing us down, and we shouldn’t expect more of ourselves—in fact we should be okay with less. Self-care is the thing, and if that includes curling up with a compelling book, this Prime Day deal on e-readers is for you.

Amazon Kindles are on sale right this minute, with epic discounts. In case you’re unfamiliar with the magic of Kindle, the portable device houses all your purchased books, and also grants you access to Amazon’s Kindle library; in other words, you can shop for your next book directly from your e-reader.

Plus, Prime Day offers you six months of Kindle Unlimited for half off—just $30—which means you can enjoy all the books you want for one low fee, even accessing new best-sellers.

Here are Amazon’s amazing e-reader Prime Day deals.

Right now, Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle—which includes the thinnest and lightest Kindle model yet—is on sale for just $95, or $45 off, as a Prime Day deal. That’s a 32 percent savings and the all-time lowest price for this bundle, which comes with an Amazon Leather Cover (a $30 value) and an Amazon five-watt Power Adapter (a $20 value).

“I bought this Kindle to replace an old keyboard one,” shared a five-star reviewer. “I wanted one that I could read in bed without a light on and also needed to be able to adjust the type size. This meets my needs perfectly. I read about 45 minutes to an hour every day and the initial charge is still about 70 percent after a couple weeks.”

For Prime Day, the Amazon Fire HD 10 is on sale for $80, down from $150. It’s currently the all-time lowest price ever on this tablet, which is a great Apple iPad alternative. That’s a 47 percent savings! It’ll be in stock on October 25, but shop now to secure the deal.

This compact tablet has a brilliant 10-inch HD display at 1080p and 12 hours of battery life so it won’t conk out mid-show. It features a lightning-fast Octa-core processor paired with 2GB of memory and 32GB of on-board storage (expandable up to a whopping 512GB), which makes it the speediest of all Amazon Fire tablets.

“The picture quality is excellent. You can really tell the difference from the previous version. The processor is also much faster,” shared a delighted reviewer. “Reading off the screen is very easy with the text sizing adjustment option.”

While the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is cool, it’s only formatted for e-books. However, Likebook Mars E-Reader—which is on sale for $208 (was $269)—is formatted for e-books, audiobooks and apps. In fact, you can access the Google Play Store on this e-reader, which runs on Android. This means you can have a wide selection of books, magazines, comic books and more—thanks to 16GB of on-board storage (expandable up to a whopping 128GB via microSD card). Compared this to the Kindle Paperwhite’s 8GB.

“The screen is beautiful and easy to read,” raved an avid reader. “I find the e-ink screen far easier on my eyes than reading on a computer or phone. It's super quick and responsive. The LED lighting is evenly distributed across the screen and can be adjusted to remove blue color for reading prior to bed. Lots of storage and an expansion card slot means I'll always have plenty to read.”
