Black Friday and Cyber Monday might be over, but the deals keep on coming.

As we recently reported, major retailers like Amazon and Target are offering Cyber Monday-type deals all week long and into the coming weekend. Now, we’ve spotted a couple of fantastic discounts for bookworms.

Take a look — whether you are buying for yourself or that avid reader on your gift shopping list:

Up to 30 percent off at Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble is currently offering a coupon for 20 percent off one item. Some items are excluded, so be sure to look at the fine print on the coupon.

To redeem the coupon online, use code PRESENTS. It’s valid online until 2:59 a.m. ET Monday, Dec. 4. Shipping is free on most orders totaling at least $25.

To redeem the coupon in stores, use code V4M3T8B or print the coupon before leaving home. It’s valid until stores close on Sunday, Dec. 3.

Now, don’t stop at 20 percent off one item. Check out the many other discounts on B&N’s “Coupons and Deals” page, and go through a cash-back portal.

By shopping through a cash-back portal, you could earn as much as 10 percent cash back on everything you buy at B&N. Here’s how much cash back some portals are currently offering for B&N purchases:

Note that you do not need a Kindle e-reader to take advantage of a Kindle Unlimited subscription. You can just download the Kindle app to various devices, including smartphones and tablets, enabling you to access the subscription on those devices.
