Each year, on March 1, National Head Start Association is launching National Reading Month.
Just like a year ago, Amazon is taking part in celebrations, offering a bunch of great deals on Kindle e-readers, ebooks, and services.
Initially, we intended to cover only the Kindle deals, but when we’ve seen how attractive are special offers on other Amazon devices, especially Echo smart speakers, we decided to extend the list.
It’s easy to associate the Kindle or Fire with ebooks and reading, but what do Echo smart speakers have to do with it? They can play audiobooks.
Imagine that you are reading aloud to your child for 15 minutes each evening. Sometimes, you are just too tired to do that. Echo speaker can help. And when you kid is asleep, it can play an audiobook for you.
Taking into consideration model variants, during National Reading Month 2018 you can access over 20 deals on Amazon’s own devices.
The next big date for book lovers is World Book Day. Make sure to check out Kindle deals on April 23rd!
