Amazon Kindle Now Available From £96

Amazon is not the only one selling the Kindle, its uberpopular ebook reader; you can also buy it from Tesco direct from as little as £96, excluding delivery as you can collect it from collection desks in selected Tesco stores.

By using the discount code TDX-K7AR (opens in new tab), users can save £15 on the suggested retail price of £111 (the 3G version is also available at a discounted price of £137) and earn double clubcard points worth £2.22.

Note that you won't be able to buy the Kindle online as it is only available instore at the moment. The device has been one of the best selling products at Amazon, accounting for, by the latest estimates, 10 per cent of Amazon's revenue, generating more than $6.1 billion.

Amazon has also revealed that it is now selling more ebooks than print books, less than four years after it first debuted. The new version comes with a 6-inch display, weighs under 250 grams, has a battery life of two months, can store 3500 books, has support for PDF and Wi-Fi and even boasts Text-to-Speech features.

It also sports a new Webkit-based browser that allows users to browse the web over Wi-Fi (or 3G for free). What's more there are thousands of popular books available for free from Amazon itself.
