There's no better time to invest in an e-reader than in the Black Friday Kindle deals. With some incredible discounts to be found at Amazon in last year's sale, we're expecting this year's Black Friday Kindle price drops to be just as good; if not even better. 

There's nothing we love more than settling down with a good book in the long, wintry evenings, and with many cosy nights in ahead, we reckon a Kindle is a great investment round about now. But how can you bag the best deal on the much-loved e-reader? 

Here's everything you need to know about this year's Black Friday Kindle offers...

What savings can we expect in the Black Friday Kindle deals?

It's all but guaranteed that Amazon will have some incredible discounts on Kindle in the lead up to Black Friday. 

In fact, the site have already offered some amazing flash deals on the beloved e-reader. Earlier this month, Amazon reduced their original Kindle, along with the added benefit of three months of Kindle unlimited, from £69.99 to just £49.99. 

Though that deal has now ended, we're expecting lots of similar deals to crop up throughout the month, as well as on the big day itself. 

Discounts in last year's sale included Amazon's most advanced Kindle to date, the Kindle Oasis, reduced from £229.99 to £179.99 – saving customers a fantastic £50. 

Amazon also slashed the price of their popular Kindle Paperwhite 32GB by a great £35, reducing the e-reader from £149.99 to £114.99. 

We'll be keeping you up to date on the best Kindle deals as and when they come in, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back in the coming days and weeks. 

Should I wait until Black Friday to take advantage of the Kindle deals? 

Not satisfied with just offering one day of mega-deals, Amazon are known for rationing their Black Friday deals all throughout the month of November.

Already we've seen some incredible Kindle flash deals which have now ended, though we expect that these will crop up again coming up to the big day on November 27. 

But to err on the side of caution, we'd definitely advise snapping up Kindle deals as and when you see them to avoid missing out. 

We'd also advise identifying the exact Kindle model you want as early as possible, so that it's easier to keep an eye out for the best deals. Sites like CamelCamelCamel monitor price changes on Amazon, and can help you make sure you're getting a great deal, rather than a dud. 

Which is the best Kindle to look out for in this year's Black Friday deals? 

Currently retailing for £149.99, the Paperwhite is Amazon's thinnest, lightest Kindle yet. Boasting a flush-front design and glare-free display, the eReader reads like real paper even in bright sunlight. (You can even read it in the bath, because it's now waterproof.) View Deal

Currently £229.99, though likely to be discounted ahead of Black Friday, the Kindle Oasis is one of the most advanced Kindle models Amazon offer. Ergonomically designed with a 7 inch flush-front display, an adjustable warm light allows you to shift screen shade from white to amber; while turn-page buttons will give paperback fans that beloved bookish feeling.

You can't fault a classic. The original Kindle with backlight is one of the best-loved e-readers around. Currently £69.99, we're certain that this one is set to be reduced in Amazon's Black Friday mega-sale.

Which retailers are best for Kindle deals?

Because Kindles are an Amazon device, it's likely that the retailer will lead the way when it comes to getting the best Black Friday Kindle deals this year.

But that doesn't mean that you shouldn't shop around. 

Last year Argos offered some incredible discounts on the bestselling e-readers – including the Kindle Paperwhite 8GB, which was reduced from £119.99 to £84.99. 

Other Kindle stockists set to have some brilliant Black Friday deals in store include Currys PC World and Very, so ensure to have a quick look at other sites before making your Black Friday Kindle purchase.
