Books are always in season

Today (Thursday, December 14th) only, you can take an additional $5 off your qualifying purchase of $15+ in books at Amazon, and that’s great news because you don’t even need an excuse to buy a book: it’s educational. Any print book (not digital) sold directly by Amazon qualifies for this promotion. [Edited to add: Whoops! I guess it helps if I give you the code? Sorry about that; use coupon code BOOKGIFT17.]

Need a few suggestions and/or gifts? I got you.

If fancy pop-up books are your thing, check out this LEGO Pop-Up book (by Matthew Reinhart, if you know your pop-ups—he’s the master) which is currently down to just $6.70 (78% off). If deep-sea creatures are more your style, go for this Wild Oceans: A Pop-up Book with Revolutionary Technology book, instead, which is down to $5.70 (81% off). That one won’t ship for a while, but I bet you’ll find a place for it when it does.

If you have an emerging reader, check out this Pete the Cat Take-Along 5-Book Storybook Set, because that’s 5 books in a cute case for just $3.55 (70% off).

Of if you have a die-hard Harry Potter fan on your hands, maybe The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook…? It’s down to $4.76 (76% off).

Those are just a few of the deals I spotted. You go do you and save your $5 on whatever you like. Because books! Yay, books!


  1. Do we need a code?

  2. Apparently it’s not all books, I’ve tried several from my Mom’s list. hope others have better luck!

    • Ah, I see, sold directly by Amazon. I’m going to look at her list again.

      • Huh, they all say sold by, but it doesn’t take the $5 off. Please let me know if you figure this out.

  3. Use code BOOKGIFT17

  4. Try using code BOOKGIFT17

    I just used it and it worked for me.

  5. YAY! I’d been waiting on a book coupon/promo from Amazon! Got the wild oceans pop-up and the Pete the Cat set, plus a book I’d had my eye on for the baby. THANK YOU!

  6. Sorry for the confusion! I did indeed miss the code in the original post because I’m a dummy and busy running around today. Post is fixed now!

  7. Thanks, Mir! Got 2 paperbacks to add to my Hanukkah gifts for my mom.

  8. Code still works today! 12/15. Just got another book gift. Thank you!
