How to Save Money on Books
I love reading books, but at sometimes more than 10 or 15 bucks a pop, it can start to add up if you’re an avid reader. Over the last few years, however, I’ve discovered a few effortless ways to save money on books that don’t involve subscribing to any daily deals emails or any of that.
Save Money on Digital Books:
Here is my favorite way to save on books:
For just $10 a month (basically the price of a single book), you can download up to ten different Kindle books at a time from Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited selection. There are millions of different books to choose from, and although not everything is available with this, there are enough business, personal development, money saving and budgeting books I can get for “free” with my Kindle Unlimited subscription to make it worth it.
Don’t have a Kindle e-reader? No problem! You can download Amazon’s free Kindle app and read their books on almost any device.
P.S. You can also save money by getting cash back for free on things you buy through Ebates!

Free Library Ebooks
If you sign up for a library card at your local library, you can usually get access to all the same books in a Kindle version, totally free! When I first discovered this, there was a waitlist of 1,000 people for The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, but I was able to instantly download some less popular business and personal development books instead.
There are sites out there that help you discover free or low-cost Kindle books, like and blank, but the methods above are my favorite simple and easy ways to save that involves almost no effort or digging around lists of books you may not want.
