When we asked Jake Shears, singer (and Masked Singer alumnus) about the items he can’t live without, his fondness for his Kindle was immediately apparent. The Oasis (Jake’s preferred model) is now £60 off (£200, down from £260) in the Amazon Black Friday sale.

I think I’m on my 15th Kindle,” he explains. “I’ve broken many of them, but I’ve definitely given a couple to my mum over the years. This current model is one I’ve had for a while, and it’s honestly one of the things I really can’t live without because I travel so much. Back in the day, I used to have a whole suitcase just for books. Which is ridiculous.

“I like the new Oasis design because it’s so comfortable to read on. You can hold it by either hand, it’s better than reading on an iPad or something because the screen isn’t backlit. Now we’re in lockdown, I use my Kindle mostly for the New York Times app in the morning. It’s a better way to read the news, rather than on the phone, because you’re not getting endless updates all day.”
