20 Books to Help You Survive Black Friday

November 25, 2015 • Featured


Thursday may be the day of thanks, but Friday is the day of deals. Black Friday is definitely not for the faint of heart, though. If you’re courageous enough to brave the crowds and early morning, it takes some serious physical and mental fortitude to make it through the day in one piece. As with most things in life, we think books hold the answer. So we’ve created a Black Friday Survival Kit with everything a brave soul needs to battle the crowds. Whether it’s staying limber while waiting for hours in line, maintaining your sanity with guided meditation, escaping for a moment with a short story, or even transforming Thanksgiving leftovers into a creative next-day meal, we’ve got just the fix. Arm yourself with these books, shop the day away, and emerge from Black Friday with a few more things to be grateful for.
