I admit to having an unhealthy love for my Kindle, but I still love purchasing paper books, too. I usually go a little crazy this time of year and take advantage of whatever Amazon’s Black Friday Book Sale is because it’s usually pretty awesome and this year’sÂ sale does not disappoint!Â
This year you can take $5 off any $20+ book purchase (Kindle books excluded) with code “GIFTBOOK17.” This offer is valid through November 26, 2017, at 2:59 a.m. EST. There are a lot of terms and conditions, but basically, the discount only applies to books that are sold and shipped by Amazon, the maximum discount is $5 and the discount can only be used once per person.
Obviously, there are tons and tons of books out there that are worth purchasing, but I thought I’d share a few suggestions that would make fab gift ideas:
Instant Pot Obsession by Janet A. Zimmerman
In my post about why you need an Instant Pot, I recommended Instant Pot Obsession. It’s full of great recipes, but if you’re looking for other Instant Pot Cookbooks, check out my list of Instant Pot gift ideas!
For a rad gift combo, grab an Instant Pot from Amazon and package it with the cookbook!

One Family by George Shannon
I spend a lot of time thinking about how to teach my son that the world is a very diverse place, and part of that is making sure we have books with diverse casts of characters. This one gets rave reviews.
Synopsis:Â Just how many things can “one” be? One box of crayons. One batch of cookies. One world. One family.
From veteran picture book author George Shannon and up-and-coming artist Blanca Gomez comes a playful, interactive book that shows how a family can be big or small and comprised of people of a range of genders and races.
