Amazon book deals for World Book Day 2017 - print and Kindle

We’ve checked out what book deals – both print and digital – are awaiting Amazon customers during World Book Day 2017.

Today is a World Book and Copyright Day 2017. Proclaimed by UNESCO in 1995, it’s a festive celebration of the joy of reading, gathering libraries, non-profit organizations, public figures, and businesses from over 100 countries.

Amazon is heavily supporting the initiative, spreading the word about charity organizations and using social media to ask users why they love books (find the answers with the hashtag #LovetoRead).

The 23rd of April falls this year on Sunday – a day of the week Amazon usually offers most attractive deals for book lovers.

Below, we’ve collected our favorite ones, both for Kindle and print editions. For a complete list of book-related deals make sure to check out Amazon Gold Box.
