Kindle Paperwhite, which is waterproof for bath-time reading, is on-sale for £119.99. Amazon also allows customers to buy the device with five monthly instalments of £24 – if you’d rather not cough-up the full price upfront.
Unfortunately, the drop in VAT doesn’t apply to audiobooks, like Amazon-owned Audible, which the Royal National Institute of Blind People said was “disappointing”. As well as eBooks, digital newspaper subscriptions could drop by up to £25 a year.
However, this is down to the digital publisher behind the subscription, with some prominent newspapers already confirming they will not be altering the price – despite the drop in tax.
