Are you looking for an early holiday deal on a Kindle e-reader? Starting today through Wednesday night, Amazon is offering specials on three Kindle models.

These e-readers allow for users to access a library full of books in an ultra-portable unit. Millions of books are available for purchase through Amazon, and a number of local libraries offer free Kindle books through their websites.

All three specials will offer Kindle models at $20 off Amazon’s regular price.

Looking for a basic Kindle? Amazon is offering a Kindle unit for 59.99 from now through Wednesday night. This unit has a 6-inch touchscreen and can download entire books in less than 60 seconds with the built in wi-fi.

This Kindle comes with 4GB of memory, and free cloud storage for all Amazon content. The unit weighs 6.7 ounces and is easily small enough to fit in purses and backpacks.

The Kindle Paperwhite will also be available at $20 off for $99.99. This model is perfect for users on the go as this model comes with 3G connectivity; meaning you can still download books through Amazon wirelessly without needing an Internet connection.

The Paperwhite unit has a high-resolution display with 300 ppi. This display is also backlit, allowing for glare-free reading from complete darkness to bright daylight.

Amazon is also offering a special on a model designed for children. The Kindle for Kids Bundle is on sale for $79.99.

This Kindle comes with a kid-friendly cover, and a two-year warranty with accident protection. Amazon offers 250,000 children’s books, in addition to e-books available through local libraries.
