'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


These are the 5 best Prime Day Kindle deals still available post-Prime Day

Regret not buying a Kindle on Prime Day? These bundles still offer models and accessories at a discount.
Written by Christina Darby, Associate Editor on

Packing for a summer trip is hectic enough, and there's seldom precious luggage and carry-on real-estate for a book, let alone a few to keep on rotation. Not to mention, lugging around a 200 plus pager to the beach or lake isn't ideal. 

Kindles offer a lightweight, and often even waterproof, solution. And unlike tablets, they promise minimal screen-glare, closely mimicking the pages of a physical book. While convenient, Kindles can come at a cost. 

Luckily, there are still some Amazon Prime Day deals that have slashed hefty prices.

The latest Kindle model, the Scribe is both an e-reader and journal, coming with a compatible pen that allows users to write on the 10.2-inch screen. With this Scribe essentials bundle, Prime members get a premium pen, which includes a dedicated eraser and shortcut button to make planning your calendar, annotating your books, and crossing off items on your to-do list even easier. Along with the pen, the bundle includes a Fabric Folio cover, which like the Premium pen, magnetically attaches to the lightweight scribe. 

There's also an included black power adapter for charging, but you may not have to use it often as the Scribe features a 12 week reading battery life and 3 weeks for writing.

  • Current price: $253
  • Original price: $273

With this bundle, you get the ever-popular, lightweight Kindle Paperwhite, which houses 32GB of storage, an adjustable screen, and speakers for hands-free listening. So that you can capitalize on the Paperwhite's wireless charging abilities, the bundle throws in a Qi-compatible charging dock along with a protective, but slim cork cover. 

  • Current price: $310
  • Original price: $340 

The Kindle Oasis houses a 7-inch display while only weighing 6.6 oz, and this bundle includes the 32GB storage model so you can download and read thousands of books. Supporting Bluetooth, you can also pair this model with headphones and listen hands-free with Audible. Along with the reader itself, the package includes an ergonomic, fabric cover fit to protect your Kindle without adding too much weight as well as a power adapter for charging.
