Black Friday Deals On Leanpub Books

by Len Epp

published Nov 26, 2015

This year, Black Friday is on November 27, and many Leanpub authors have decided to offer discounts on their books. Below you will find a list of these deals, with links. Please note some of these deals won’t be live until tomorrow, and some only last for one day!

(A note to our non-North American customers: In the United States every year there is a tradition called “Black Friday” where stores across the country offer discounts on many of their products. It’s sort of the unofficial beginning of the holiday shopping season.)

Have fun checking out these great deals and discovering new books and authors!

If you’re interested in discovering even more deals, follow Leanpub on Twitter, as we expect even more authors will be announcing deals throughout the day and over the weekend.

Please note that there’s also a follow-on tradition called “Cyber Monday”, which is essentially a second Black Friday, but focused on sales for online purchases rather than in–physical-store purchases. This distinction seems a little outdated to me (what with Amazon and all), but in any case, it’s another fun opportunity for readers to buy new books they might not otherwise have tried, and for authors to reach out and find new readers who are looking for special deals.

So, some Leanpub authors will surely be promoting deals on Cyber Monday as well. Please check out our Twitter feed then for even more deals!
