Move over, paperbacks: Kindles are up to 30% off for early Black Friday

Ready to tackle your winter reading list? Cozying up next to the fire with a good tale is just about perfect for whiling away winter weather. If you're a book junkie, you're probably already a Kindle convert. If not, we could preach about how it can carry everything on your reading list at once. And with Amazon's early Black Friday deals, now's the time to toss out those paperbacks and try one for yourself — or upgrade the one you already have. Capable of holding hundreds of books, these guys are great on the go, for holiday travel, or escaping the family festivities for some quiet time. We've got a model for everyone below, and they're all deeply discounted. It's your time to shine, bibliophiles — take advantage of these deals now.

Features an adjustable warm light, nearly seven inches of display with a reduced border, and 10 long weeks of battery life. As its name implies, it reads like, well, a paperback — no glare! Also: 20% faster page turning (compared to previous models) so you can devour those mysteries.
