So many books so little money! Every month there are so many amazing books being released and I want to buy them all but my bank account is not so keen on buying them. But there is still ways to feed your reading habit without going bankrupt! And I’m going to share some tips that I’ve found to be really helpful in saving money.
1 Buy second hand books – I’ve found some great bargains buying second hand books both online and at book stalls. One stall in my local market sells books for 75p each! And they often look practically brand new!
2 The clearance or sale section at bookshops – here you can often buy newer books at a much cheaper price. I’ve often found hardbacks for £4/5
3 Bookbub – this is a website that is completely free to use and once you register with them they will send you daily deals on ebooks. Some are free and others are 99p or £1.99 This is the link to the website
4 The library – going to your local library not only helps support keeping it open but they have a wide selection of books from older books to new releases available. They can even get books in for you if you request them. My library also has a great online selection of ebooks and audiobooks that I can borrow.
5 Charity shops – I love having a look through my local charity shops for books and I also donate there. The money goes to a good cause and you can find books for a couple pounds
6 Ebook bargains – I use ibooks and they have a lot of books for cheap on there for a limited time. They also have a free ibook of the week and I’ve downloaded books like Throne of Glass and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I’m sure there will be something similar for android users
7 Shops like Poundland or B&M – they may not seem like places to find books but they do have a selection in their shops. You never know you may find a great bargain searching there.
So these are some ways in which you can read when you’re on a budget! Is there any tips I’ve missed do share in the comments! I always love a good bargain! Especially when I buy as many books as I read a month!
