Are you the type of person who's always bringing home new books to add to your to-read pile and then just forgetting about them? There's actually a word for thattsundoku, which is a Japanese term that comes from the words tsumu ("to pile up") and doku ("to read"). And if your pile of unread books is starting to take up a bit too much real estate around your home, you can declutter your life while still buying all the titles you want, thanks to Amazon's Kindle sale.

The sale is applicable to Amazon's standard Kindle, as well as the thinner, waterproof Kindle Paperwhite. The original option has over 37,000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating, while the newer version has the same star rating and over 118,000 reviews. Both provide weeks of battery life, a six-inch glare-free screen, Wi-Fi capabilities, front lights, and the Audible app, if you enjoy audiobooks. Though the classic Kindle is only available in 8GB, the Paperwhite offers cellular connectivity in both 8GB and 32GB. You'll also get three months of Kindle Unlimited for free, which gives you access to millions of books, audiobooks, and newspapers at no extra cost.
