Retail Stores

Amazon’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales seem to discount a fairly random assortment of books, with discounts ranging from 10% up to over 90% (they’re mostly kindle deals at the top end). Discounts vary across different countries.

I usually just start by going through my wish lists to see if any of those books are discounted! Deals expire between 27 Nov – 3 Dec 2023.

☞ I also have a bunch of public booklists on Amazon if you want to browse through them for ideas!

Waterstones has 50% off a number of bestsellers, as well as a double (all purchases) or triple stamps (purchases >£100) offer for members, running from 24-27 Nov.

Waterstones: Black Friday Deals

☞ Waterstones has lots of beautiful special editions with sprayed page edges available for preorder that you can check out in my upcoming special editions page. Although international shipping for one book is pretty expensive, after this each additional book adds only £1 to the shipping total (even for preorders which will ship separately) and so the cost is extremely reasonable if you buy in bulk or can share an order with a friend. 

B&N are running 50% off select bestsellers; double or quadruple stamps for members; and buy one, get one half off (which includes my personal favorites, the B&N Collectible Editions).

Barnes & Noble: Black Friday/Cyber Monday Deals

☞ Check out my complete list of B&N collectible editions if you collect these, and there are plenty of pretty, exclusive B&N editions on the upcoming special editions page!
