Amazon & Target Are Selling 3 Books For The Price Of 2 This Week

Book on sale at Amazon

We have good news for anyone who likes books and also sales

Both Amazon and Target are having 3-for-2 book sales right now, and the selection is great.

We love just about everything about books—well, except for paying for them. While the library is an amazing resource, there’s just something special about owning and collecting books, holding a new release in your hands, and marking up the margins at your own discretion. But the cost isn’t insignificant, especially for the newest hardcover releases. Catching a good sale can mean bring home three books instead of one, and catching a sale right at the beginning of summer can mean filling up your carry-on or beach tote for plenty of breezy vacation reading.

Below we will suss out the details of each sale and cover a few of the best picks at the Amazon sale, which includes a selection of about 600 titles.

We want to add as always: supporting your local indie book store and your library is vital to the book community—and we assume that you’re doing that in addition to catching great sales like these.
