Amazon Cyber-Monday sales: Movies, Kindle books, LEGO, Instant-Pot, DNA testing, more!

As always, the notion of "Cyber-Monday" makes no sense anymore, since internet at home (and on phones) is ubiquitous, but hey, whatever floats your marketing boat. And as mentioned earlier, this is a shorter post than in previous years, but hopefully hits some high points.

Still on sale: The $5 off $20 Book Coupon, the best annual thing Amazon does. Go use it! It expires at midnight. And it stacks with sale books, so the new Jack Reacher hardcover, The Midnight Line, which runs $10.88 (62% off), and the new Harry Bosch hardcover, Two Kinds of Truth ($11.09/62% off) can be combined for the coupon.

This is also the last day for the Amazon Devices sale, and a great chance to get Kindle/Echo/Fire items on the cheap.

Recent movies still on sale cheap (all are Blu-Ray, most have DVD/Digital versions as well): Alien: Covenant: $8.99 (74% off); The Fate of the Furious: $9.96 (72% off); X-men: Apocalypse: $5.99 (25% off); Star Trek Beyond: $7.65 (72% off); Jack Reacher: Never Go Back: $5.96 (75% off); Get Out: $9.96 (57% off).

In kitchen goods, the Instant Pot Duo is back down to $74.99 (38% off). It's still a fantastic device.

Other kitchen gadgets and items: The Rachael Ray Oven Lovin' Non-Stick 5-Piece Bakeware Set is $27.95 (14% off, but really about $15 below other vendors). The GLOUE 4-Piece Silicone Spatula/Spoon Set is $8 (65% off). The 7-Quart Crock Pot is $19.99 (52% off). The Hamilton Beach 10-Cup Food Processor is $32.88 (6% off, but really about $11 off other deals).

In Kindle books, Amazon has literally over 400 books on sale today, which is a lot to sort through. Some highlights: Didion's Slouching Towards Bethlehem (an essay collection I first read in high school, and still both one of my favorites, and an influence on my reading of essays in general) is $1.99, as is her novel Play it as it Lays. Claire North's fantastic The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is $2.99. N.K. Jemisin's The Fifth Season -- a fantastic Hugo-winning novel -- is $2.99. George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones is on sale for $1.99, in case the series has slipped below your radar. The City Stained Red by Sam Sykes is $2.99. For Preston/Child fans, White Fire is $3.99, as is Fever Dream. Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret is $2.99. And Keith Richards's Life is $3.99. And in nonfiction, Yuval Noah Harari's amazing Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind is $4.99.

Bonus Kindle deals: There's a huge X-Factor sale, with tons of graphic novels for $5 or less, including a bunch of the Peter David classics (many of which were not ruined by terrible company-mandated crossovers).

And for the umpteenth time, most Ian Fleming James Bond novels are $1.99 a pop on Kindle. It may be a sale they've done before, but it's still good pricing.

If you're into DNA testing (hopefully for better reasons than to be like the ass who says "I'm a member of all peoples" on the commercials) the Ancestry.com kit is $54.99 (44% off).

In video games, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is $34.99 (42% off)! That's also on my wishlist, in case anyone was curious.

And finally, for kids (or, well, anyone), there's a huge one-day sale on LEGO sets, with major sales on Marvel, Minecraft, Architecture, and other LEGO lines.
