1. The Planner
I love paging my way through the hottest days of summer with a good psychological thriller, and my choice will ring in at less than $3 during the August 1 promotion. Sweet!
Here are a few ways to plan ahead for your Penny-A-Page deal:
- Peruse expert picks from Books-A-Million staff.
- Blaze your own trail by choosing from the newest releases.
- Check out the current New York Times bestsellers.
Remember, print your Penny-A-Page coupon before you head down to Books-A-Million on Wednesday, August 1. Present the coupon at the register to score the deal.
“We are always looking for new ways to engage avid readers,” said Scott Kappler, chief marketing officer for Books-A-Million. “Penny-A-Page offers a fun opportunity for readers of all ages to explore a new world within the pages of their favorite book.
“From wrapping up summer reading and preparing for back-to-school to getting a jump start on holiday shopping, this is a can’t-miss day to stock up on the best books around!”
2. The Gift Buyer
Buy a meaningful gift for the price of what’s in your loose change jar.
You can’t beat Penny-A-Page for finding a budget-friendly gift for that birthday around the corner. I’m running a bit behind, so I still have a graduation gift to buy.
3. The Great American Reader
Recently, 7,200 people across America weighed in to help PBS narrow down a list of the top 100 books that have “inspired, moved and shaped us.” The result: The Great American Read list.
I’ve read only 20 of the 100 books on the list, so I could stand to up my literature game with a Penny-A-Page deal on August 1.
