If you've been lucky enough to book a holiday this summer, you might be starting to think about your beach reads.

Rather than weighing down your suitcase with books, it's currently a great time to invest in the Kindle Paperwhite. Now just £69.99 (was £119.99), you can store unlimited books all in one place.

The thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, it's the perfect device to bring with you on holiday, on your commutes or on long car journeys. With twice the storage of the previous generation, plus a single battery charge lasts weeks, it's no wonder that 82 per cent of its reviewers on Amazon have scored it five-out-of-five stars. 

The Kindle Paperwhite is now £50 off on Amazon, reduced to £69.99 

Amazon's e-reader is a summer must-have. While many of us may love the look and feel of a book, the Kindle's ability to hold thousands of titles in one small tablet make it a travelling essential. 

With over 31,000 perfect five-star reviews, the Kindle Paperwhite is a phenomenally popular choice for those looking for easy reading solutions on the move. 

If you've yet to invest in an e-reader, now could be the perfect time as Amazon has knocked £50 off the Kindle Paperwhite, so you can now snap up the bestselling device for just £69.99.  

Simple and reliable, the palm-sized reading device has changed our reading habits over the years. There are several versions of the Kindle out there but the Kindle Paperwhite offers many of the most attractive features at an affordable price point.  

While it might not be as big as the Kindle Oasis (designed with a 7-inch screen) or with as many LED lights, the Paperwhite is waterproof and comes with WiFi.

The 6-inch glare-free display has improved resolution meaning the whites are brighter and blacks are deeper, making for a more pleasurable reading experience. 

It's also the thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, so it's perfect for bringing with you on the go. Better still, a single charge lasts up to six weeks, based on half an hour of reading per day.

The Kindle Paperwhite holds thousands of books and a single charge lasts up to six weeks, making it perfect for holidays or commutes 

If you're someone who likes to have several books on holiday, the Kindle Paperwhite can streamline your packing, saving you plenty of room for other essentials.

Amazon reviewers have called it 'wonderful in every way', raving about the 'impressive screen' and how it's 'extremely lightweight'.

One delighted shopper wrote: 'One of the most useful products which I have ever purchased. Very light weight. I could focus reading more on Kindle rather than iPad. Less eyestrain as well. Strongly recommend it if you love reading without any distraction.'

Another agreed, adding: 'Love the paper white screen. Does not tire your eyes and is easy to read the font. Can enlarge or shrink the font size to suit.

'Ideal for travelling thanks to storing lots of books. Battery life is good too. Can read it in darkened environments too thanks to the built in light.'

A third penned: 'Superb kindle. Holds thousands of books can be used in the dark due to the superb built -in led lights. I wouldn't be without one and take it everywhere.'
