sale alertAs of today, the following books are on sale on Amazon. If the day the deal ends is listed on its Amazon page, I’ll note that here. But otherwise, I haven’t a clue…so get ’em while they’re hot!

How did I find these?

I subscribe to a few newsletters that email you a list of books that are free or on sale. It’s great. Even though I usually end up buying more books that way, I still probably save because books on my wish list are frequently listed, and I know to buy them sooner rather than later. You can sign up for the newsletters here, here, and here. I also browse the Daily Deal and sale sections of Amazon.

How did I pick these?

A lot of these are books I can personally recommend because I’ve read them. In those cases, I’ll tell you why you should read them.

Other books are just ones that I think look interesting and have added to my to-read list as I was writing this post!

Onto the Deals!

Wildcard Pick:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – on sale for $4.99

So I finally jumped on the bandwagon and read this last week. I’d bought it awhile ago, but was literally afraid of reading so much sadness. I wasn’t sure if I can handle.

While I really hate John Green for making me cry so much, this is something everyone needs to read. And it’s on sale, and if you want to see the movie, you need to read the book first.

So read this, and hate John Green with me.
