Black Friday is coming up, which means it’s time to take note of all the sales happening this year. There are always great sales on technology, clothing, and home accessories, but did you know there's also quite a few bookish Black Friday deals you should be looking out for? 

From hardcovers to e-readers, many book-themed items will be discounted from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, which means you can save big and get a head-start on your Christmas shopping. Whether you’re shopping for your next favorite book, or choosing holiday presents for all the lit-lovers in your life, you can find some seriously great items for a fraction of their usual price.

As a fan of the “bargain bins” in the bookstore, I’m always looking out for great book sales. I may have a huge TBR pile, but that doesn’t stop me from constantly buying more reading material. After all, you need to have plenty of choices so you can coordinate your book with your mood. I also love finding great book selections for my family and friends, because as they know, I am constantly recommending books and trying to find their next favorite read. So if you’re a fellow book-lover, and a fellow bargain hunter, check out this roundup of some of this year’s best Black Friday book deals.
