Saving Money On Books

How many of us see a movie a second, third, or even more times and always find something we missed? Well, it's no different when reading a book. Our brains cannot absorb all the information the first, second, or even third time around. So instead of letting those books sit on the shelf collecting dust, spending money buying new books, or spending gas money for a trip to the store or library, simply read those books again!

Not only will you find those nuances you missed before but you'll also save oodles of money and you just might enjoy the second read more than the first.

I've always been a bookworm, and love to have several on hand I have not read yet. Lately I have noticed all the e-readers, Nooks, Kindles, and such on the market and thought it would be handy to have one when I couldn't get to the library, such as 2 years ago when we were snowed in for a week.

I am an avid reader, and would haunt book stores and buy minimum 3 or 4 books a month. I would donate my used books to a local senior center thrift store.

Then I realized the LIBRARY was across the street from the senior center thrift store and membership is FREE.

You may not consider the purchase of an ereader as frugal but in my case, it is. Our "local" library is 60 mile round trip. Then the books have to be returned. Consequently I've not been able to enjoy reading a book in several years.

I have recently become a "reader". I wanted to start my own library so I could be able to read books at my own leisure and to be able to lend my books to others to read. I started purchasing books at the book store paying the asking prices for my books.

I seldom ever buy books new and I love to read. I go to second hand bookstores and garage sales to find my books.

I love reading books and spent a fortune in used book stores. Then I developed a back problem and could not leave the house. I started ordering all my books and DVDs from the library, my library had a program where they mailed all the books directly to my home, free of charge.

I am a librarian, so I know about many sources for books. It is always best to see the books before you purchase them, but that isn't always possible.

I have found that amazon.com is the best review source.

Our library has a program where you can take home 10 books from a paperback shelf. You do not have to return them. They are donated books; you can return all the paperback books on your shelf that you do not want any more.

My solution to buying or selling books is to swap your books for another book, CD or DVD. This helps to lessen the carbon footprint, and you get an item that you want!

There are a few swap sites that you should check into, such as swap.com
