Some Of The Best Star Wars Books Are Discounted At Amazon This Week

From novels and art books to children's books and encyclopedias, a bit of everything is on sale ahead of Star Wars Day.


Star Wars Day is this weekend, and what better way to celebrate than with a new Star Wars book? Everything from novels and children's books to art books and encyclopedias is on sale ahead of the event, making this the perfect time to fill your bookcase for cheap. And if you're looking for something for your daily commute, you'll also find plenty of audiobooks available on Audible--most of which can be purchased using free monthly credits if you're an Audible Member.

If you need help sifting through all the deals, here's a look at the best Star Wars books on sale for Star Wars Day. Many of these will likely disappear next week, so be sure to check them out while you can.

Not a reader? Then maybe you'll be interested in the Star Wars: Skywalker Saga Complete Box Set, which compiles all nine mainline films into either a Blu-ray or DVD collection. These are technically UK releases, but since they're region-free, you can watch them anywhere.

Encyclopedias and Art Books

The Making Of Star Wars hardcover edition

One of the best books on sale right now is The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the first Star Wars film, with nearly 400 pages of exclusive content. The hardcover edition usually costs $85, but you can pick it up for just $54, which is one of the best prices we've seen this year. Other notable deals include The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia (Hardcover) for $75 (down from $150) and The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (Hardcover) for $36 (down from $50).

A wealth of Star Wars fiction is on sale, including a variety of children's books and YA novels. However, The Star Wars Trilogy (Paperback) might be the best deal of the bunch, as it's available for just $8. This anniversary collection includes novels of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, and features gorgeous artwork on its cover. And at nearly 700 pages, it should keep you busy for quite some time. You'll also find several books set in the High Republic Era, which is set a few hundred years before The Phantom Menace and the rest of the prequel trilogy, during the height of the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic. If that sounds interesting, you can grab the Star Wars: The High Republic Light of the Jedi trilogy box set for $25 (was $33).


If you're interested in audiobooks, be sure to check out Audible. Tons of Star Wars audiobooks are available on the platform, with many costing as little as $10. Better yet, members can use their monthly Audible credits to snag a new one for free.
