Book and Kindle Deals

I absolutely love adding books to our home library and our Kindle digital book collection. But if I’m being very honest, I’ll tell you that I often spend WAY TOO MUCH on books. I have a book-buying addiction. Amazon Prime gets me every time!!

So, in order to help myself stay within a budget, I search for great book deals.

Guess what?
