Hi bookworms! I’m trying my best to keep on top of blogging, therefore I’m back today with a discussion post.
A while ago, one of my peers at college asked me how I afford so many books. Well, the only way I can is by following a strict regime and a number of tricks. I think it’s about time I share those tips with you guys, and here I am! Today is just the first installment in this guide, and I’m hoping to share more soon.
1.Buy online and shop around
I’m sure this is something everyone does now, but it’s so helpful! I would really recommend checking all Amazon sellers and even trying eBay when you’re trying to find a book – you can find some really good deals just by searching around.
2. Loyalty vouchers
It’s totally worth becoming a loyal customer if you shop at a bookshop a lot. You might not know this, but for those in the UK, Waterstones also offer a stamp card where you earn £10 for every £100 you spend.
3. Buy secondhand
Buying from thrift or charity stores is something I find difficult – YA sections are often non-existent or undefined. But it can be worth a browse! I can almost always find a book if I do a proper search around my local city, and they’re always cheap. Secondhand books aren’t always in bad condition, either, which is always a bonus.
So those are my first tips for buying books! How do you save money when buying books?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
