5 Best Places to Find Discounted Books

If you are a #bookhoarder like me, than you are always on the look out for the best #bookdeals. I have grown quite the collection for myself over the last couple of years and wanted to share with you my tips on the cheapest places i've found to grab a book.

Thrift Stores

Goodwill is my kryptonite. I can always find a book there for a great deal. If you don't mind a gently pre-read book on your shelf, than this would be the first place I suggest you shop. I know Goodwill isn't available everywhere so find your local thrift store and go book shopping!

Thriftbooks is basically an online thrift store, just for books. Similarly to a thrift store, they sell gently and very well loved books. You can shop based on the condition you want the book to be in. While they are a little bit pricier than my local Goodwill, they have a huge selection that allows me to hunt down some great titles. I found out that Meg Cabots, The Mediator series had 2 more books I didn't know about, All thanks to thriftbooks.

Ebay has been my go to when i'm looking for an entire series and I don't want to make my purchases one book at a time. Like and thrift stores, you can find many pre-read options, as well as brand new ones! My most recent Ebay splurge was on the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter.

Kindle Unlimited

I know what you're thinking, that's a subscription, not a book. Hear me out though! If you don't have KU yet, I am here to convince you to make the plunge. I have found some really amazing books through Kindle Unlimited that I probably wouldn't have read otherwise. If you are a quick reader who tends to go through multiple books in a day like I sometimes do, then Kindle Unlimited is the best buy for you. If you purchase say 5 books that are offered on Kindle Unlimited as part of their subscription (these usually range in price but the average book is about $5), then you are spending $25. Or you can pay the $10 monthly fee and read hundreds of books all at your own pace.

Books I loved from Kindle Unlimited

How to Save and Undead Life (You already know I love Hailey Edwards)

The Fallen World trilogy (I actually bought this one in paperback because I kept going back to re-read it.)

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me (if you're looking for cute romances, Mariana Zapata is the queen.)

I'm going to be honest, I haven't ordered anything from here yet, but I am so excited to! It literally tells you everything you need to know, in the name. They offer books from $1.99 and up. I am really excited to make a big purchase here and see how much I can save compared to Amazon. Be on the look out for a post from me in 2022, I'll let you know if it's worth the buy!

Like books, reading, book reviews, and all things bookish? If you haven’t yet signed up for the treasure trove be sure to fill out the subscribe form here, so you will get a notification the next time we post!
