  • I go to the library a lot, and buy from used book stores where I can trade them back in when i am done reading them. Also yard sales are a good source too.

  • I work in an office, everyone here leaves their books on a shelf after they read them. It's a mini library we have here. I also buy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. My mother also gives me books. I'm a huge reader and never could afford to buy them all. I work full time + 3 kids. I don't have time to go to a library.

  • I don't buy books anymore, the last time we moved almost half of our boxes were books (30 boxes for 3 of us!). So we went through all the books and sent most of them the a second-hand bookstore. Now we get all our reading material from the library. Sometimes I have to wait a little longer to read the newest bestsellers, but I'm saving hundreds of dollars each year.
