Every avid reader reaches a point where they have to figure out how to score cheap reads, because oops — you spent your paycheck on books. Again! Getting an overdraft notice every time you visit the bookstore is a clear sign that you need to figure out a way to score inexpensive books or books for free.
But there are other warning signs that you have a book buying problem. For example, it’s virtually impossible for you to walk into a bookstore without leaving with a bag of books. You buy new titles on your Kindle, even though your TBR pile takes up half your apartment. You burn through your monthly Audible credit the minute it shows up. You buy every book in the Confessions of a Shopaholic series, and find that you relate a little too much to Becky, only with books as opposed to clothing.
But don't give up hope just yet: there are ways you can keep up your monthly reading routine without sacrificing the rent check. There are plenty of discounts out there for bookworms to score cheap, or even free, books. Here’s how you can add to your collection and still have plenty leftover from your paycheck… to use to buy more books, of course.
