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).



We recommended this witty guide to grammar in our roundup of essential books for young writers. Seriously, it's a book about punctuation that will make you laugh out loud—how can you resist?


I mean, we all know that I am a sucker for any book that includes complicated, invented footnotes, so I am definitely biased toward this tale of two magicians, working in different ways, to bring true magic back to an alternate England. 



Anna and the Swallow Man
By Gavriel Savit

There aren't really any light books about the Holocaust, and this dark and difficult middle grades tale of a girl surviving on her own in the Polish countryside during WWII is no exception. But it's powerful and moving and worth reading when you're ready for it.
