Thanks to my best friend, and fellow book addict, I recently discovered a website that has changed my life, and my wallet. As a book addict, I unabashedly buy more books than I can possibly read, and I have never thought twice about it. Books are my vice, what can I say? However; bookstores are expensive, and as an artist often between gigs, I have to be more diligent with my budget. I love the library, I do, but there is something so special in owning a book and watching your personal library grow. My best friend, Kaley, told me about Thriftbooks.com and ever since, I find it hard to buy books any other way. It is amazing and dare I say, dangerous. It’s like Half-Price books online. They sell used books of varying quality (all decent, some like new), and deliver them to your doorstep. The prices are unreal. I once got seven books for under $20.00, the price of one brand new book at Barnes and Noble. The selection is huge and they even have new releases (though they are a little more pricey). They also have free shipping if you spend $10.00, which is usually two-three books. If you join their free ReadingRewards program, it tracks your purchases, and once you have spent $50.00 you get a $5.00 coupon, which is basically the equivalent of a free book. I know. It sounds too good to be true. It gets better. Any time you refer a friend, you both get a 15% off coupon for more books! They also have an app, that has a first purchase discount as well. There are so many savings, it’s almost impossible not to buy a million books. I can’t gush about this site enough. Thriftbooks.com is genius and has changed the way I read and shop for books. Check it out. You can thank me later 🙂 .
