You bought yourself a new Kindle Fire HD or Android tablet, eh? You do plan to use that for educational and informational reasons, right? Amazon has introduced its second annual 12 Days of Deals for books.

Note that it is not required that you own an Amazon tablet or something with “Kindle” in its title in order to take advantage of the deals. No, you can also get in on the big discounts with the Amazon Kindle app which is available for free in the Google Play Store.
