You’ve bought those designer jeans. You snagged that top-rated coffee maker. The next greatest thing on your Prime Day shopping list? A great book (or two) or even an Audible subscription (or two) at a super-deep discount. This Prime Day has a bevy of book-related bargains (and of course some Kindle sales). To help you figure out what’s best for you, we’ve rounded up the best Audible and book deals.
Audible Premium Plus Subscription
This Prime Day, Amazon is offering 53% off your first four months of an Audible subscription, along with one free audiobook every month. Following months price out to $14.95 per month.
Now at its lowest price ever for Prime Day, the Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, has a glare-free display that reads like real paper, can sync up with Audible and has a battery life that lasts weeks, not hours.
A more basic model that’s still great, this Kindle is now at its lowest price ever as well. It’s got a glare-free display and you can adjust the brightness to your liking. As with any Kindle device, the charge lasts basically forever.
The snazziest Kindle model there is, the Oasis comes with an adjustable warm light that makes night reading even easier. Not to mention that it’s also waterproof and has the slimmest 7-inch display.
Kindle Kids Edition
An excellent gift for kids (if we may say so ourselves), the Kindle Kids Edition not only comes with cute colorful covers but is designed with parental controls.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘The Testaments’ Box Set by Margaret Atwood
Tons of popular book box sets are up to 40% off this Prime Day, including this “The Handmaid’s Tale” box set that includes the novel that inspired the hit TV show, as well as the sequel by Margaret Atwood. Bonnet not included.
‘Batman: The Dark Knight Returns’ Book & Mask Set by Frank Miller & Lynn Varney
For Batman superfans, how cool is this? This set comes with the classic comic book along with a replica Batman mask that you may or may not wear while reading. We don’t make the rules.
‘The Darkest Minds’ Series Boxed Set by Alexandra Bracken

‘I Am Watching You’ by Teresa Driscoll
A psychological thriller for the ages (and an Amazon bestseller), this novel follows Ella Longfield as she just so happens to find herself knowing a bit too much about a mysterious disappearance in her hometown. If you haven’t read it yet, now is the time.
‘The Murmur of Bees’ by Sofía Segovia
Author Sofía Segovia’s first book to be translated into English centers on Nana Reja, a mysterious and powerful child with the ability to see visions of the future. He is followed by a protective swarm of bees, which come in handy when some of the townspeople begin to grow increasingly hostile to his gift.
