Friday means it’s time for Connect Five Friday,hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
This week I want to share 5 ways you can get more books cheaply or with little or no cost.
1. From the library
I use the library extensively and order many books each week. I love that the notifications let me know when books are in and when books are due.
2. From family and friends
I always ask for a bookstore gift card every birthday and have gotten some great books that way (from my local bookstore tho – not Amazon) I also exchange books with friends and family.
3. Free (or cheap) ebooks)
I use BookBub and Freebooksy frequently to get free ebooks. When I find an author I enjoy, I will spend a bit (usually under $5) to finish n interesting series.
Whether from blogs, Twitter contests or Goodreads, giveaways can be found and books won.
5. Thrift Stores and yard sales
Books can be cheaply bought from Thrift stores (my local Goodwill store is a frequent stop) and serve as a way to donate and get something in return.
