Amazon Prime Day 2017 Best Picks for Bookworms!

Amazon Prime Day starts early – you can get some great deals starting tonight! I confess, I’m an Amazon devotee (addict?) and make good use of my Prime account. Perhaps too much good use, my hubby might say, but it’s SO helpful.

Do you have a Prime account? If not, you can get a free Amazon Prime trial by signing up here! (Just set a reminder to cancel it if you find it is not for you. I bet you keep it….)

Of course, you know I’m addicted to my Kindle Paperwhite because of both its portable size and its awesome glare-free and back-lit screen which lets me read in ANY light.  There is a great Prime Day offer on the Paperwhite – click here to check it out:

And of course, once you have your Kindle (or if you already have one), you might be interested in getting unlimited reading from over one million titles on your device. Prime Members get 25% off a 6-month Kindle Unlimited membership, get 33% off a 12-month Kindle Unlimited membership, and get 40% off a 24-month Kindle Unlimited membership.  Find out more by clicking here.

Are you more of an audiobook junkie? There’s a great promotion for Audible, too. Ending July 11, 2017, new-to-Audible Prime members can listen to audio books for only $8.95 per month for the first 6 months, a savings of 40% or $36. Learn more about Audible and this deal HERE.

Of course, kids are harder on tech. Amazon offers the All-New Fire 7 Kids edition, and it is $30 off! I mean, it comes with their two-year, worry-free guarantee “if they break it, we will replace it – no questions asked”.

It also comes with one year of FreeTime Unlimited, which gives your kids access to 15,000 popular apps and games, videos, books, and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more.  

And with parental controls, YOU  manage usage limits, content access, and educational goals – i.e, how long they can play versus how much they read.

I LOVE that.

Now, for my Bookworms – there are some amazing deals on books. I LOVE books. Check it out:

 

Oh my goodness, I love the hilariously irrelevant Jenny Lawson. In her book Furiously Happy, she touches on a more serious subject – depression and mental illness. A touching memoir, Jenny tackles the subject as she does best – with honesty and joy.

I think the Little House on the Prairie books are timeless, and my daughter is the right age to be reading these. I can’t wait to nab a boxed set of the first four books in the series.

My daughter is addicted to this series – this is the second and was a captivating tale for middle grade readers.

Let’s face it – we’ve still got half of our summer ahead of us, and the kids are starting to say it: “I’m BORED”. This is the PERFECT book for those uninspired kiddos: Unbored: the Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun.
It contains everything you need to inspire fun in your kids, with hands-on activities ranging from science experiments, crafts and upcycling, board game hacking, code-cracking, geocaching, skateboard repair, yarn-bombing, trivia and even Q&As from creative leaders. See it HERE.

 

If you haven’t yet discovered the charming writing of Frederik Backman, this is the perfect opportunity. This Fredrik Backman Box Set contains three must-reads:  A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here.

Of course, I’m not all about books.

I like my coffee, too.

There’s an extra 24% off the Oxo On Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker. I mean, one of us needs to be smart in the morning. It may as well be my coffeemaker, because I’m helpless until I’ve had my first cup…

 

I’m also a bit of a Keurig junkie. Sometimes, I don’t need to make a full pot. (Who am I kidding.  I drink coffee all hours of the day is all, and so one cup at a time is more sensible during the week.) Here’s a great deal on the Keurig K55 brewer WITH a 40-count variety pack of K-cups – it will let you brew multiple cup sizes, as you need them. Did I mention it comes with a variety pack to let you try out different flavors and brews? Variety is the spice of life!!!
Check out the deal: Keurig K55.

Of course, sometimes I need something even stronger. Moscow Mule, anyone? This set of copper mugs (and copper shot glasses) is just what the doctor ordered. (I have an awesome doctor.)  This is the perfect compliment to sitting on the back patio with a good book on a hot summer evening, isn’t it? Check out the deal HERE
