105 Ways to Give a Book

Amazon Bargain Book Bonanza!

It’s been a long time since I pointed out the amazing deals you can get on Amazon if you happen to hit it right. I don’t know exactly how Amazon works, but these look like overstocked books rather than close-outs and they do this all the time. When I have a need for a brainless, but moderately fun task, I skim through the section for Bargain Books. Then I go to Children’s Books. And now I’ve learned a new trick that eliminates most of the pesky third-party sellers. In the left sidebar, narrow down your selection by Shipping Option: Free Super Saver Shipping. Bingo. Now you’re getting hardback books...
This is just the tip of the iceberg, but they are all books that I highly recommended. One that I haven’t read, but would buy (and did) sight-unseen as a great teacher gift is An Illustrated Treasury of Read-Aloud Myths and Legends: More than 40 of the World’s Best-Loved Myths and Legends Including Greek, Roman, Celtic, Scandinavian, Indian, Mexican, and Many More. Now it’s about ten bucks, but I got it for six, which just goes to prove that the pricing is about inventory and that you have to act fast.

(It’s only right to mention that as an Amazon Associate I do receive a small referral fee from Amazon which helps support this blog.)
