Amazon $5 off books coupon!

This post contains affiliate links.  Please refer to my disclosure policy for more information.


I’m SO excited that the Amazon $5 off books coupon has returned!  You can save $5 on your books purchase of $20 or more!  Keep in mind that the books have to be sold and shipped by Amazon.  You can use the coupon NOVBOOK18 to take advantage of these savings through November 25, 2018.  Keep in mind that it is one time use per account!!  You can use the code on individual books or on sets.  I always recommend boxed sets for the greatest savings!


Here are some great deals you can take advantage of using this code:  my kids and I have read all of these and recommend them!



We LOVED the Sandra Boynton books when my kids were little!  I kept a few of our favorites because it was so hard to part with them!

Boynton’s Greatest Hits Volume 1

Boynton’s Greatest Hits Volume 2 

Buy both sets and use your coupon to save more!


You can’t go wrong with this Dr. Seuss board books boxed set!  


The Eric Hill “Spot” books were another favorite with my kids!  I read them so many times that I still have them memorized.


My son LOVED this Thomas boxed set! I finally passed them on to someone else about a year ago. This was another set that we read so many times that I memorized them!


The Karen Katz books are so cute, too!  They’re great for bedtime routines, teaching your little one about body parts and more!



I taught both of my kids to read using Bob Books!  Prices on the boxed sets start at $10.69, so you can get a few and then use the promotional code!

Even if you’ve seen the movie, I still recommend reading Wonder.  I read it with my kids this year and it’s awesome!  I just bought Auggie & Me:  Three Wonder Stories for my kids as well!  If you enjoyed Wonder, check out Ugly, too!  It’s a similar concept.

My son doesn’t love reading but he couldn’t put The One and Only Ivan down.  He actually told me to “be quiet” because he was reading one day!  My daughter loved it too when she was his age!


A Wrinkle in Time will be released as a movie soon.  I bought the boxed set, which includes FIVE books and I was able to include another book, too, so that I could use the coupon.  I added Crenshaw (written by Katherine Applegate, who also wrote The One & Only Ivan).


I know this is a favorite among my nieces right now.  Get a Dork Diaries Boxed set for only $10!  Even less if you’ve got the coupon still!

My daughter really enjoyed the Cinder series.  There is a boxed set, but it looks like it is cheaper to buy the individual books right now.


The Giver boxed set is the lowest I’ve seen it!  I just bought it for my daughter!
