Connect Five Friday

connect-5-3

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.

4. Giveaways
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.

  1. Yes the library these days is a great asset. I don’t follow up much on book deals on Kindle as I live outside the USA and the deals aren’t so good. I do spend quite a bit on books but… mostly my adventures are book adventures!

  2. Great suggestions for freebies! I do those things too. I feel like I’ve won some kind of lottery when I have gift money or a gift card to spend on books. 😉
