Perfectly legal, by the way 😝
If you’re a fast-reader like I am, you probably go through books like it’s nobody’s business. But that can add-up and cost quite a bit, so let me tell you the ways in which I get to read a ton of books while spending very little money.
1. Put it on the Wishlist
I have a Kindle. When I want an ebook that is full-price, I just put it on my wishlist. I check this list from time to time, and lo and behold! Ebooks often go down to $1.99 and even $0.99!
Have yourself a wishlist that you check from time to time, and you will be amazed at how often ebooks go down in price!
Be honest, you weren’t going to read the book right away, anyway, because you own so many 😝 You can’t fool me.
2. Get a Library Card
After moving to Colorado and dragging way too many books with me, I knew it was time to borrow instead of buy. So I got a library card, and to my delight, they lend out ebooks!
Many libraries let you borrow ebooks from the comfort of your computer. And the best part? They have best-sellers and new-releases!
The worst that can happen is that the book you want has a wait list. But again, you’re not fooling me. I know you have a ton of books that you haven’t read! 😂
3. Check Kindle Daily Deals and Monthly Deals
Amazon has deals on Kindle books every-single-day. Simply go to the Kindle Store and click on daily deals– it’s that simple.
Kindle has low-priced ebooks daily, and a large chunk of ebooks on sale each month.
Checking the monthly deals is similar. Simply go to the Kindle Store and click Monthly Deals. You can browse by categories such as biography, business & money, religion, young adult, and more.
Bonus: For Hardcover and Paperback
I also have a way to get cheap physical copies!
Check thrift stores, yard sales, and small local bookstores.
Thrift stores often have bestsellers a few months after they go on sale. Why? Because SO MANY people buy them, but not everyone keeps them. They’re also great for books out of print and hidden gems.
Yard sales also have their hidden gems, and local bookstores are often 1/2 price, or they let you turn in old books for store credit.
