How I Get Cheap E-Books

100th (2).pngHello and happy Wednesday. I am very excited to bring this post to you because I feel that my how-to posts in general are the ones you enjoy the most and the ones you can take the most advantage of as well, which is always cool because I feel that I’m sharing useful content. Today, after five Kindle and audiobook hauls, I am going to talk to you about the system I use in order to get the most items for the lowest price. Let’s get started, shall we?

Now, I know I published a similar post a while ago on how I get cheap or free books, but I couldn’t find the link, so I’m thinking I probably published it in my previous blog and it is now gone forever. Basically, in there I talked about how I am subscribed to sites like BookBub and Riffle Books that send me daily newsletters with ebooks that are on sale. In there, I also mentioned my subscription to Kindle Unlimited, which lets you have a maximum of ten ebooks at a time for just $10 a month.

Those are awesome things and I have included them in my system because I’ve gotten more consistent with my book buying habits recently.  I pretty much rely on my Amazon wishlist, which means I rarely impulse buy books that weren’t in the plans. I mean, you know how long my wishlist and TBR lists are, I can’t afford to make them longer.

What I do, and this is pretty much a once-a-month kind of thing, is I look through my wishlist and just check whether any book is on sale. On sale means it is $1.99 or less. Yes, I am that cheap, but you’ve seen how many books I’ve been able to find, and I’m just talking about the past four months.

In my last haul, I featured audiobooks. Now, what I do to get cheap audiobooks is I’ll go to my Kindle library, and I’ll do this in either my Kindle or my iPad and I’ll check out the whispersync thing, I’m not sure how it’s called. It’s basically the Audible version of the books, only you don’t have to pay for a monthly subscription, but you just buy the audiobook. You can do that because you already own the book. Again, for this I check that the audiobooks don’t cost more than $1.99, or I’ll stretch it to $2.99 if I got the reading version for free.

Do you have a system for buying digital books online that won’t break the bank? Let me know in the comments. Also, let me know if you’d like to see a version of this post for physical books.

Happy reading!

Love, Miss Camila
