Saving on books

March 23rd, 2006 at 03:42 pm

I love to read and hard cover books range from $15.00-$22.00. Well now that I am on this get out of debt plan I decided to use my public library (wow) I have not seen that place since 1993 and guess what I owed them $13.00+ a replacement fee for my library card, but I must say it was well worth. I have read at least 6 books since I dedcided to return to the library and saved me any where from $50.00 to a $100.00 easily. Just wanted to remind every one that you do not have to buy books & that the library could be your best friend

    Another good way to save money on books (assuming you want to own them), is to buy a whole ton of older, used books that look interesting and/or that you have always wanted to read. This way, you always have good reading material lying around and will not feel the temptation to buy the latest & greatest bestseller. I recently finished Jeffrey Toobin's book "The Run of His Life", about the OJ Simpson trial. It was excellent, and it cost me about $2.00 at a used bookstore.

    I use our library weekly. Our system is set up so that I can go online and search all of the books in our county system (probably 20+ libraries) and request them to be sent to my local one. It is extremely rare that I can't find a book that I want this way....and they are always free!! (and I am not accumulating more clutter) I am a HUGE supporter of our libraries!! Thank you for reminding everyone about this option!!!
