I've spent considerable time during the pandemic relaxing with a book, something I didn't do nearly enough before. While I've lugged my novels around the house, a new Prime Day deal is seriously tempting me to buy an eReader.

Amazon is selling the Kindle Oasis for $175 (opens in new tab), or $75 off the retail price for the ad-supported version. If you don't want ads, the ad-free Kindle Oasis is $195 (opens in new tab), down from $270. This is the lowest price we've seen on this product, which is one of the best eReaders on the market.

One of the best eReaders on the market, the Kindle Oasis has a 7-inch Paperwhite display with a pixel per inch density of 300. You can adjust the white balance from pure white to more amber to relax your eyes or match the color of pages on a book. 

This eReader has a thin, ergonomic design with physical turn page buttons and thin display bezels. While it charges using an outdated MicroUSB port, the Oasis can last four weeks on a charge if you read each day for 30 minutes. 

Oh, and the Oasis, which has a responsive touch panel, is waterproof, so you can read out by the pool or not worry about a light rain shower.

In our Amazon Kindle Oasis review, we gave the eReader a 4.5-star rating and an Editor's Choice award, stating that the device "provides a premium reading experience with the ability to read just about anywhere."
