Books are expensive. Even here in the UK where brand new books are some of the cheapest in the world. Of course, almost all of us have access to libraries but we can't keep those. They aren't our books to display on our shelves and look at as often as we desire. And eBooks are all tucked away on a device - not filling up our beloved bookcases! So, how do you keep up a book collection without breaking the bank?
Over the last year I have been trying to find ways to buy books and still save money. Today I'm going to share the tips and tricks I've learned.
If you're here looking for how to get the latest release in the best condition then you should be warned. If you want cheap books you have to be prepared to deal with them being less than perfect - dog ears, rips, old covers you hate - and so on so most of these tips (the cheapest options!) won't provide you with brand new condition books!
Now that's out of the way, I have 5 tips for you today so let's get going!
Do you use any of these tips or are there any I've missed? Let me know! I haven't bought any books so far in 2018 and I have put myself on a ban to save money for my upcoming trips and so I can buy books when I'm on said trips but perhaps I can convince myself to purchase just a few!
