BOOKS

I have to be honest, I can’t stop reading!

Novels really don’t do it for me, I need to be learning and adding value to my life and the lives of others so I read the other stuff. I decided to start a list of books so that anyone can see what I read and pick some for themselves if they choose. Also I have found that the price of a book can vary alot! so here are my thoughts on buying books.

1. Only pay full retail in emergency, got to have it now, can’t wait another second, I don’t have a book with me type situations.

2. Shop for books at 2nd hand stores like salvation army thrift stores, Goodwill, bargain books, used book stores etc. and be ready to buy when the price is good. It’s better to have good bargain books on my shelf than to pay full retail.

3. Shop Online. There are so many great sites with great deals on new and used books, and don’t be afraid to buy used, most sites give a very accurate description of condition.

4. Share books with others. If I find a book at a great price, I’ll buy two and give one to a friend. Whats cool is I have friends who do the same with me!

Share: Please share the places you buy books in the comments so that all of us can get the best deals.
Thanks in advance.
Read On!

I buy most of our books at Amazon. I find they have great deals. New and used. We also buy 2 (or more) at a time so we can give one away to one of our reading buddies.
