With Brayden’s newfound inspiration for reading and books, I have been on a book acquisition kick.
That sounded kinda fancy and technical huh?? Book acquisition….
For me, I love to borrow books from the library, but there is just something about them being mine to reference have to lend to someone else that I just like. So, in general, especially with nutrition books, I want to buy them, ya know?
Anywho, in the last couple weeks I have realized that I don’t have to pay super high prices for books! Yipee!!! I have discovered a few ways to save a significant amount of money of book buying and increase my collection tremendously!
I thought I would share to enlighten you, although my hunch on this one is that I might be one of the last people to realize this…
On one of our library dates, Brayden and I discovered that they had a little section with large signs that said “Book Sale”. Huh…
We found a ton of great books for $1 and $2! Over the last two visits, we have acquired at least ten new books!
Even some Magic Tree House books that we didn’t already have…
I also discovered that on Amazon you can opt to buy the used copies of books and sometimes they cost less than $1. Then you just pay $3.99 for shipping, and the book is yours. I found this to be a good method when I am looking for a specific title.
My last little tid bit for book buying is the Goodwill. I checked out their selection yesterday and they had quite a bit of books. The great part was that they had them all organized by type, so it was easy to browse.
For the books I was interested in, they weren’t the total bargain basement, but still a lot more affordable than buying them all brand new.
Just thought I would share this Friday morning!
