Looking for something new to read? Ready to start on your 2015 reading list? Here are some of my favorite places to score new books at low prices.
(Sidenote: I’m not being compensated in any way for this…these places are just where I’ve found the best books deals!)
Barnes & Noble is running their “red dot” sale right now–tables full of already discounted books at an additional 50% off. No store near you? Check out their online 85% off sale and their online books under $5. A lot of these books are best sellers from years gone by, so you can find some good titles!
If you have a Nook, be sure to keep an eye on Barnes & Noble’s Nook Deal of the Day and the Nook Daily Find. If you don’t have a Nook, you can download the Nook app on most devices and take advantage of the good deals without having to buy an e-reader.
The same goes for Amazon’s Kindle. They do have a program called Kindle Unlimited that gives you access to over 700,000 book and thousands of audio books for $10/month on any device with the Kindle app. I like it better than their Amazon Prime book deal, because you can read multiple books and more than one a month. I will say that despite the advertised number of books, I didn’t find all that many that were interesting to me…but it’s definitely worth taking a look.
Of course, you can never discount your library. I know that, as a mom, I often end up in the library for story time and spend time picking out books with JC…but I never think to get my own. Sometimes the wait lists for popular books can be long, but I like to go online and request books, and then they have a nice pile of them ready for me at checkout when I go with JC. A lot of libraries also have ebook options.
