Amazon Prime Day Deals: Books You Must Buy

The day has come once again where your spending urges must be fulfilled because the deals are too good to pass up: Amazon Prime Day. The genius marketing of the Amazon team has already released a number of products set to go on super-sale starting July 12th, with some deals beginning in a few days on June 21st. 

While the majority of major discounts are found in the tech section of Amazon on Prime Day, those who want to finally fulfill their New Years’ Resolution of reading more have found an opportunity to pick up a few new books to either enrich their minds or maybe just sit on the shelf so that people think you read often. 

The books already on sale that may go down in price in early July range in genres, from entertaining poolside reads like Meg Mason’s Sorrow and Bliss to older classics that you’ve always been curious to read, such as Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment or Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, all under $15. Being a real adult means going back to read books that you were assigned in high school and college but never actually read, without the added pressure of having to write an essay on them; these Prime Day Book deals won’t make you feel buyers remorse either if you never end up reading them, once again. 

A variety of biographies, non-fiction books, and self-help books are also on sale if fiction is not your genre of choice. The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self by Martha Beck is one of Oprah’s Book Club choices as well as a New York Times Bestseller, sitting currently at 40% off on Amazon. Michelle Obama’s iconic autobiography “Becoming,” outlining many personal experiences as well as her time as the first lady, is also on sale and expected to go down in price during the Prime Day window. 

Finally, Amazon reading devices such as the Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Oasis, and Fire Tablet have been announced to be on sale during Prime Day, for those who prefer to keep all of their books compact and in one convenient tablet. Take advantage of these Prime Day Book deals and pick up an old favorite to add to your collection or a new release that you are eager to dive into this summer.

    Movies based on books that are worth watching

    Many movies have been made that are based on books. There aren’t many good book-to-film adaptations.
    That’s not a criticism of Hollywood; it can be difficult to condense the plot and character development of a novel into a few hours of fun. Because of this, the best book-to-film adaptations frequently resemble a companion piece rather than an accurate telling of a bestseller. Some adapt stories in new ways or include brand-new scenes to appeal to a contemporary audience, like the 2019 Little Women movie. Others profit from Hollywood’s glitz and glamour. For instance, the soundtrack to the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie on Netflix enhances the romance in the movie.
