‘Tis the season to buy books! This Friday is Black Friday and while others may be looking for the hottest deals on clothes and electronics, there’s only one thing I’ve got my eye on: books. And bookish merch. But mostly books. So to make sure I, and you, get all the best deals out there this Friday, I’ve put together a comprehensive list of the best sales going on this weekend. Check it out, and please let me know if I missed anything.
In general, books from BookOutlet are already ridiculously cheap, so when they have a sale going on you know it’s going to be good. I did the math and the 18 books currently in my cart will only cost me about $62 with their Black Friday sale. That’s a crazy steal. However, make sure you set your alarm and get in on this sale early, because you better believe these books will go fast. The sale begins on Thanksgiving at 10 a.m. EST. Don’t miss out!
2. Barnes & Noble
Barnes & Noble has a lot to offer this weekend. Online you can get 20% off on orders with the code GIVETHANKS from Nov. 23-26 and you get 20% off in stores from Nov. 24-26. What’s really exciting at B&N Black Friday is the number of signed books they have stocked up for you.

3. HarperCollins Publishers
You can buy the books straight from the source this weekend (and always, actually). Beginning today, HarperCollins is having a 30% off sale on their website and there’s also free shipping. The sale will last until Monday, Nov. 27 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
