Like it or not, eBooks are here to stay. There has been so much passionate debate on whether print books or eBooks are better, but the truth of the matter is that it doesn't need to be a competition. Physical books have their own pros and cons, from seeing your favorite novel on your bookshelf every day to accidentally spilling your coffee all over it, just like eBooks can feel lifeless in comparison yet always in your pocket and ready to read wherever you go. If you're an avid reader who doesn't have a way to read eBooks yet, it's past time to change that.
It's been over a decade since Amazon's first Kindle e-Reader was released, and since then there have been a number of iterations where the design and included features have been tinkered with and improved on. Latest models like the Kindle Paperwhite are equipped with premium features like a waterproof casing and the ability to play audiobooks from Audible, as well as Kindle Unlimited books. Remember when the Kindle couldn't be read in the dark since it didn't have a built-in light? That's a problem of the past.
The best part about Amazon's Kindle e-Readers is that there are different models to meet buyers at various price points. While the All-new Kindle starts at $89.99 (with special offers), models like the Kindle Paperwhite (priced at $129.99) add additional features for a higher cost. The Kindle Oasis is the best of the models currently available as it features an adjustable warm light that can get brighter than any of the other models can, along with a 7-inch display that's an inch larger than the other models have. However, it's also one of the priciest at its regular cost of $249.99.
Sure, Amazon may usually have the best Kindle deals, but that's not the only retailer where you'll be able to save on these stellar e-Readers. We've put together a list of the best Kindle deals available right now at various retailers across the net.

Which Kindle should I buy?
Now that the Kindle e-Reader is in its 10th generation, even the most affordable model is well-improved over the initial incarnations of the device. That means you really can't go wrong even with the base model, though if you have more to spend, you can find a top-of-the-line e-reading experience with models like the Kindle Oasis.
Priced at $249.99, the Kindle Oasis is one of the priciest, and fully-featured, e-Readers ever to come from Amazon. Its display is as book-like as the Paperwhite, though it has a slightly larger screen compared to other Kindle devices at 7 inches wide. It's waterproof so you can read in the bath or in the pool, and there are even built-in buttons to help turn the page — that can keep the screen cleaner, too. Another big difference between the Oasis and the Paperwhite is that the Oasis has an adjustable warm light so you can switch from white to amber and keep reading easy on your eyes.
Meanwhile, the Kindle Paperwhite comes in at $129.99 and has a screen that seems like it's real paper rather than a display. It can even be read outside in bright sunlight. It's waterproof just like the Kindle Oasis above and it can play audiobooks from Audible too.
If you're buying a Kindle for a kid, be sure to look into the Kids Edition model. It's basically the same as the All-new Kindle (10th generation) though it comes with a few extras to enhance the experience for your child, such as a kid-proof case and a year of Kids+. The service lets them read a wide selection of age-appropriate books on Kindle and also includes access to games, tv shows, movies, and more that are all safe for young children. The best part about the Kindle Kids Edition e-readers is the worry-free 2-year guarantee. If anything happens to the tablet within two years after your purchase, you can return it to Amazon for a replacement at no additional cost.
