When there's a deal on a great book, we want you to know about it! Usually, we'll highlight Kindle books, just because they seem to have the best sales, but if there's a deal on a hard copy, we'll let you know about that, too. We will ONLY post sales for books someone on our staff has read and recommended (or, very occasionally, books that we really, really want to read but haven't gotten around to yet).

SALE PRICE: $1.99

This was part of our U.S. History reading list this year, and I think it stands as an important counterpoint to all the happy stories about hardworking pioneers and westward expansion. It's an important book, even it it's not an easy one.

Far Far Away
By Tom McNeal

I usually only post deals on books I've actually read, but I've had this one on my TBR (To Be Read) list and was so happy to snatch it up cheapish that I wanted to share: It's a twisted fairy tale with mystery, ghosts, complicated characters, and all kinds of awards, and I'm starting it TODAY.

SALE PRICE: $1.99

This is one of the hardest books to recommend to people—"it's about a girl who had two siblings but now has none, and one of the siblings is a chimpanzee"—but it's tender and difficult and lingering and so worth reading.
