Every bookworm’s biggest vice is spending too much on books (and running out of storage space!). Even if you try to set a monthly book budget, you almost always end up overspending. But what you might not know is that you don’t HAVE to spend so much to enjoy reading. There are hundreds and thousands of books of discounted and FREE books out there. That’s right!
So if you’re a fellow bookworm like us, here is our guide to getting discounted or free books to read to your heart’s content:
1. Revisit the Good Old Days and Your Local Library
Thousands and thousands of books in every genre, for free?! Does it get any better than this?? It is a great idea to get your library card issued and hit the books. Issue them, read, and return. No space issues, no money spent.
2. Free eBooks
If you are open to reading on tablets, computers, or e-readers, the world is your oyster! There are millions of free e-books waiting to be downloaded and ready by you. You can download these e-pubs and transfer them directly to your device for an uninterrupted reading experience, anytime and anywhere.
3. Explore Amazon for Free Ebooks
You don’t necessarily need a Kindle device to read e-books. You can download the free app on any device; your phone or even your computer, and make the most of the massive Kindle library.
Here is how you can download and read Kindle books without spending too much:
- Visit Amazon’s Kindle Store
- Scroll through the different genres and open whichever one interests you
- Filter the books by price: low to high. This will show the free kindle books first.
- Keep an eye out for Daily Deals and discounts on popular books.
4. Online Book Swaps
Online book swaps have become a massively popular trend on social media involving books being exchanged across the world. You could find someone in your social circle, participate in book swaps online or conduct your own personal version with family and friends.
5. Try out FREE Audiobooks
With everyone being on the move at all times, reading has become a tedious task. That’s where audiobooks come in. They are convenient, easy to consume, fun to listen to and FREE! Just download it, plug in and drift off.
