Remember when Amazon just sold books? What a quaint time.

Luckily Amazon still does, and this Prime Day there are some deals on print books, which could be a boon to cookbook lovers. There are limited “lightening deals” on cookbooks, though with the exception of At My Table: A Celebration of Home Cooking by Nigella Lawson (45% off!), they’re mostly highly-specific books like Whole Bowls: Complete Gluten-Free and Vegetarian Meals to Power Your Day and Air Fry Every Day: 75 Recipes to Fry, Roast, and Bake Using Your Air Fryer.

But as in years past, Amazon also has a general discount code: Get $5 off with code PRIMEBOOK19 when you spend $15 or more on print books. (Note that the code works only on books “sold by” i.e. not third-party sellers.) So as far as cookbooks go, the best way to take advantage of Prime Day may just be to use the code for the books you’ve been eyeing that aren’t yet on your shelf. Below is just a small selection of Eater picks:
