Saturday Book Sales

Saturday Book Sales: May 15, 2021

It’s time for another list of #SaturdayBookSales! 

Each Saturday I hunt down the best book deals I can find and share them in a new post!

If you want to participate you can do so by sharing a link to a good deal you’ve found in the comments of our weekly post or…

  • create your own post featuring deals you’ve found. 
  • tag me so I can add a link to your post here. 
  • if you want, you can use the image so I can find your posts more easily. 

You can share one deal or several, it’s completely up to you. This way all of us avid readers can give our pocketbooks a break while still hitting the books!

Quick note: I’ve changed up the formatting here a little bit. The more “expensive” books are at the top while the less expensive and free books can be found toward the bottom of the list.
