It’s Thanksgiving in the United States, which typically means family gatherings and lots and lots of eating. Whether you realized it or not, this is also the season of gratuitous WordPress product discounts. WordPress themes and books are all on sale this week, and we’ve got a roundup of everything you should take a look at.
So before the weekend’s over, take a break from that turkey leg for a sec and take a tryptophan-fueled dive into some WordPress deals.
