Book Haul June 2015


I am obsessed with finding a good deal on books. I love reading but it can be an expensive habit. This week I got eighteen new books and spent a little less than $12. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I received three of these books from my lovely co-worker Kelli. Once she reads a book she passes them on to other book lovers so that they can enjoy them too. On Monday she brought me;

A majority of the books that I bought this week I got at my local library’s summer porch sale. They have the sale a couple of times a year and everything is 50¢. My good friend Megan and I took an early lunch at work today and headed over to the library. It took us fifteen minutes to find parking, but it was totally worth it. I spent a whopping $5.83 and got eleven books.

I also bought a few books on my Kindle. I spent $1.99 on each of the following;

And last but not least I received one book in the mail from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

So excited about all of these great books at such awesome prices. I am set for summer reading.

Here is another look at my book haul this past week.

Give Me All of the Books

I absolutely love reading but books can be so expensive. I am always on the lookout for a good deal on books. Thrift stores are a wonderful option for physical books but the majority of my reading is done on my Kindle. Digital copies are usually much cheaper than the physical copy to begin with but I buy so many books that I still have to wait for them to go on sale before I will but them. I may have a slight problem, I keep buying them faster than I can read them! Seriously, have you seen my waiting to be read bookshelf? I rarely buy a book if it will cost me more than two dollars. Lucky for me, Amazon constantly has sales on books. I check the Kindle daily deals, monthly deals and my wishlist every morning to see if I any of the books that I am interested in have gone on sale. I decided that my weird obsession diligence in hunting for the next great book bargain should be passed on to all of you. So, if I ever find a book that I am super excited to find on sale I will let you all know.

It just so happens that today Amazon’s Daily Deal is extra exciting. They have over 50 summer reads on sale today. Below are a few that I was most excited for but you can find the full list here. (Keep in mind that these sales are only good for today, May 23rd)
