Chronicle Books Friends and Family Sale: 35% Off Everything

There are just sales and sales and more sales today – it is honestly the craziest start to Thanksgiving week that I have ever seen! According to TechCrunch, pre-Thanksgiving sales are already up 19% over last year and I wouldn’t be surprised to see that number escalate. Normally brands hold on to their sales until Thursday but this year the sales all started last week. Crazy!

While most companies are labeling their sales “pre-Black Friday,” I enjoy that Chronicle Books has stuck with the “Friends and Family” format. Hey, whatever works. A sale is a sale is a sale and if anyone on your shopping list is getting books, this might be a sale worth shopping because for a limited time you can get 35% off your entire Chronicle Books purchase!

Chronicle Books Coupon: Use code “FRIENDS” at checkout to receive 35% off your entire purchase AND free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement! This offer is valid through December 10, 2014.

We included a couple of Chronicle Books in our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, including:

Flora and the Penguin

Flora and the Penguin – normally $16.99, get it now for $11.04

Synopsis: Having mastered ballet in Flora and the Flamingo, Flora takes to the ice and forms an unexpected friendship with a penguin. Twirling, leaping, spinning, and gliding, on skates and flippers, the duo mirror each other’s graceful dance above and below the ice. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results. Artist Molly Idle creates an innovative, wordless picture book with clever flaps that reveal Flora and the penguin coming together, spiraling apart, and coming back together as only true friends do.


Hand-Lettering Ledger

Hand-Lettering Ledger – normally $18.95, now $12.32

Description: The ultimate tool for designers and creatives looking to tap into the trend of hand-drawn lettering, this workbook features step-by-step lessons on a range of styles plus more than 120 practice pages, making it the ideal place to learn and perfect this in-demand design skill.

Of course, Chronicle carries thousands of books, many of which would make fantastic gifts!
