Buy new and used books or download them on your Kindle
Although Amazon now sells a lot more products than it originally did, itās still a great site to buy books. Amazon probably stocks any title you can think of in hard and paperback copies. Additionally, with the increasingly popular Amazon Kindle, you can now purchase e-books. All books can be bought for less with Amazon discount codes.
The Kindle is a great evolution to reading culture for many reasons. Namely, you can now carry hundreds of books in your pocket, making it perfect to take on your holiday or your longer travelling trips. Itās also kinder to the environment, as no trees have to be cut down in order to produce it.
Whatās more, the Kindle uses intelligent technology to help you choose your next book. It looks at your previous book preferences and recommends new titles for you. No longer will you ever be stuck for something to read.
It doesnāt stop there. Enter Kindle Fire. Arriving in 2011, the Kindle Fire marked the Kindle's transition from being an e-reader into a fully-functional tablet. In addition to downloading and reading books as per Kindle standard, you could now browse the web, post on social media and watch movies and TV shows on your Kindle. On the latest Kindle Fire models, you can even use Alexa — Amazonās answer to artificial intelligence. Alexa is a voice-activated assistance tool. You can ask her to show your favourite book, tell you what the weatherās like or Skype your friend.
Make your home a smart home with Amazon Echo
While the Kindle developed from an e-book into a tablet, the Echo is essentially a speaker that doubles up as a voice-activated gadget that can help you with your day-to-day life. If you connect your Echo to a music streaming service, such as Spotify or Apple Music, you can tell Alexa to play any artist, album or song without having to leave the sofa. You can also set reminders, call people and even turn the lights on and off!
Like the Kindle, the Echo comes in a range of prices. The Echo Plus (the premium option) goes currently for Ā£139.99, the Echo costs Ā£89.99 and the Echo Dot is an affordable Ā£49.99. However, use an Amazon discount code to grab the Echo for less.

But what about those last minute emergencies, where you need your purchase the next day. Well, if you invest in Amazon Prime, you can get millions of possible items delivered the next day.
Thatās not all. Prime also doubles up as a movie, TV and music streaming service. For Ā£9.99 a month (or an upfront cost Ā£79 for the whole year) you can access thousands of TV shows and movies, along with one-day delivery.
Prime members also get access to exclusive Amazon sales events as well as Amazon discount codes throughout the year.
