    I love reading and I love books. The satisfaction from devouring page after page of a crisp new book is second to none. But, recently I’ve been toying with the idea of making the switch to Kindle and the reasons are two fold. Firstly, I live in an average sized London flat, so small by any other standard – but that’s another story entirely – therefore space is a premium commodity. And secondly I like to switch between books so need the flexibility.

    So, it only makes sense that I look at picking up a Kindle. And, with amazing deals to be had this Prime Day (we’re talking up to £100), it’s the only sensible way to go. With Kindle’s to suit every age and every budget, there is something for everything.
