David lives in Brooklyn where he's spent more than a decade covering all things edible, including meal kit services, food subscriptions, kitchen tools and cooking tips. Before, during and after earning his BA from Northeastern, he toiled in nearly every aspect of the food business, including as a line cook in Rhode Island where he once made a steak sandwich for Lamar Odom. Right now he's likely somewhere stress-testing a blender or the best way to cook bacon. Anything with sesame is his all-time favorite food this week.

Remember when Amazon made you think of books and not space travel or household robots? What's old is new again because the original online bookstore is having a massive sale on, you guessed it, books. Amazon's Kindle sale kicked off earlier today and allows you one e-book purchase from a massive selection for $5 or less

The sale includes a whole lot of bestsellers and classics including James Baldwin's If Beale Street Could Talk and Julia Child's My Life in France. For chuckles, pick up Seth Rogan's biography Yearbook for $5 or take yourself on an adventure with The Mandalorian Armor

Amazon's e-book sale has popular reads for as little as $2 or $3 and down as much as 80% from the normal prices. It spans all genres too including nonfiction science fiction, teen and young adult, food and cooking and many more.

The sale is just for today but all these Kindle books are available to download to your device instantly and then you got 'em for life.
