Shhhh….don’t tell my kids, but I bought them some awesome book set deals on Amazon.
I often see deals on ebook versions, but my kids really prefer to hold an actual, paper book.
My ten-year-old is bummed out because he finished all the Harry Potter series. He went to Barnes and Noble and asked the employees if JK Rowling wrote any other books. From the looks on their faces, I think they’ve gotten that question a lot. He’s one more little boy in a long string of kids who are lost on what to read after finishing Harry Potter. Truly, it’s a popular series because it’s a great read. I’ve read a lot of books but I can’t say I’ve found anything else that’s “the new Harry Potter.” I don’t think there ever will be. There will be another great series, but it will be its own thing.
Even if we don’t find the new Harry Potter, we’re happy to read a LOT of books. And I’m happy to save money buying them!
Some of these deals have gone up in price since I first posted them, which is normal. When you see fantastic Amazon deals, don’t wait to snag them if they’re something you’re interested in. The price can go up shortly after you view it, especially when a lot of people are viewing that deal.
All 5 books in the Fablehaven series for
$11.55! (The price has gone up now to $27.89) I want to read these, too. I try to be careful about the content in a lot of modern fantasy and young adult books. This is a popular series and there are a lot of reviews that will specifically tell you about the content of these books, so you can decide if it’s appropriate for your child.
It’s Gersbermps! A 5 book set for
$7.56 right now! (Price is up to over $19 now) That’s so cheap for actual, physical, paperback books. My 7 year old is getting these, but I have a feeling my ten year old will read the whole set in a day.
I finished these books back when I was in middle school. When I taught public school, this was a popular book choice with students in my 5th grade classroom. Right now it’s $10.99 for the complete five book set! With the remake of the movie coming out, this is great timing.
All my children loved the first Boxcar Children book, which we read as part of our Sonlight curriculum. They asked me about all the sequels, and here I just happened to find this 12 book set for only $
11.56! (It’s up to over $34 now) I missed this series as a child, but I’ve been told that the older books are the best.
This is the only set I didn’t buy, because we already have all this entire set. But this deal is really good! $
20.86 for all seven books in the series! (It’s up over $50 now). I bought most of these in hardcover when they came out and paid about that much for each book. They were worth it, so I’m not complaining, but if you don’t already own this set, then this is a great deal.
Amazon has a lot of other book sets on sale right now, but these were the picks that I liked enough to actually buy for my own kids (plus Harry Potter, which we already own).
We’ll take a week off of our homeschool routine during Christmas, but I think I know what my kids will be doing during that week, and it involves lots of page turning!
I’d love to know what books your kids are reading right now, too. Please share if you’ve got ideas for what to read next.
