Hello! Today I wanted to share with you my two BEST BOOK BUYING TIPS so you can find the best book prices! They have helped me so much over the years. First, grab the ISBN number for the book you want off of Amazon. (If there are different editions of the book, make sure you have the correct ISBN because each edition will have a different one.)
Tip #1: head over to bookfinder.com, plug in the ISBN number for the book you want, and see where you can get the best price. It's an amazing tool, and it's how I fit as many great books as possible into my budget!
Tip #2: another really good place to get used books affordably is thriftbooks.com. They have free shipping over $10 (what book lover buys less than that anyway?), and they also have rewards points that score you occasional free books. They also have a deal on your first order (I think it's 20% off), and will occasionally run other sales or offer you a discount on a book of your choice.
Note: Many of the best books are out of print, and are worth tracking down used, but I do suggest doing that in the "off season" for the best prices.
I hope this helps you to get the most for your money, and get as many books in your budget as possible! Feel free to drop me a line and tell me what book treasures you find!
