Who can resist a massive discount? Every time a sale on Amazon happens, the deal-seeker in me comes to life and goes bananas!
When my child was little, if I came across a series of books – I would just buy a dozen. To gift kids who came home for play dates (so they wouldn’t want to take home some of my child’s fav books!), or for b’day parties and especially for return gifts for my child’s b’day.
Now that she is 12 years old, the only thing that has changed now is that I stock up for birthdays (and not play dates or sleepovers!!) so we don’t have to run around looking for a gift, last minute!
Since Amazon sales keep happening a few times a year, I thought of compiling a list of box sets of MUST READ books, award winning authors, bestsellers, recommended books for different age groups.
DISCLAIMER: These photographs are indicative – please check which exact books will be included in your box set on Amazon itself.
Happy Shopping. May you be able to make the most of every sale!!
