Longtime readers here know that I list these every single time I catch them on sale, and this is for several very good reasons:
1) I love books.
2) I love these books.
3) The prices are phenomenal.
4) These make awesome gifts.
5) Did I mention that I love books?

More price drops may be coming, but for now, check out these tiles at Amazon for 80% off:

  1. Santa really seemed to like that Fairyopolis book! along with a doll baby deal from below, Santa feels really lucky to know about your website. 🙂

  2. Fantastic! I do love these books. I’ve bought them before, and I bought them again. I am done with Christmas shopping, but I’m sure I’ll find someone to give them to, or put them in the gift closet. Thanks so so much!

  3. I love the Fairyopolis books and I thought I had gotten a great deal when I got it for $8. Maybe I will pick up another for the gift closet.

  4. 3 for the gift closet!

  5. My son is lovin’ fairies right now. I am guessing he will love this book even if he would hide it from his friends. Its hard being 11.

  6. Woot! Bought a bunch to restock the gift closet. At this price you can’t go wrong!!

  7. Have we been sucking up to you enough lately, oh pretty Mir? ‘Cause if not, after this deal you deserve it! Now if only the Wizard of Oz would go on sale like that…

  8. Getting one of each! Thanks!

  9. D’oh, let them sit in my cart too long! Finally decided to get 3 of each and all the Pirates were gone. Argh.

  10. I was wondering what happened to the Pirates…Dang Pacific Coast lunchtime! I’m never leaving my office again!

  11. I had 4 of the Sabuda Castle books in my cart and then… walked away from the computer for a half hour. BIG mistake. Price is up to $19.49 each. Rrrrrr.
    Oh well. I’ve gotten so many great deals this year, I am not that bothered by missing one.

  12. Last time you recommended it, I got the Castle book—and it was even better than I’d expected. This time I think I’ll get Fairyopolis.

  13. Life of Pi sounds great!

  14. Yeah, bummed about the price jump on the Castle book. Oh well, easy come, easy go, Santa says. The fairy book looks great for my nieces!
