Introduction: Want to Buy a New Book? You’re in Trouble. Here’s the Solution.

Are you a book lover and need a good read? Well, have I got some exciting news for you! This weekend is the time of year when all the new books come out and it’s become an annual tradition for me to go to the book store to get the latest releases. Or, I should say, it WAS an annual tradition.
A few years ago, I just didn’t feel like making the trip to the book store. When I looked online, there were so many titles to choose from that it was overwhelming. The bookstore didn’t have all the books on my wish list (even though they had a lot more than Amazon). It turns out that Amazon has a huge selection (about 2 million titles compared with about 400,000 at the average bookstore) and is always adding new titles to its inventory.

Where to Find Great Deals on Books with Discount Codes and Coupons

I went to one of my favorite places at the mall. This is the place where they have all the magazines and newspapers, as well as all the new books. I felt like a kid in a candy store, looking at all of those new covers and titles. (I love a new book!)
A few of the covers were nothing new. There was a new Michael Connelly title, a new John Sandford title, and a few other authors that I had seen before. But there were quite a few others that I did not recognize. That really got me going! How could this be? Here it was late August, and there were all of these brand-new books for sale in the middle of summer. What were these places? And what were the discounts on them? All I could think of was to check out all of those books that I had never heard of. (And to my knowledge, there aren’t many new books that come out in mid-summer, because if they are going to be good, they usually need a lot more time to get written beforehand.)

How to Find Bargains at Online Bookstores – 3 Top Tips

I went to two other online bookstores where I could get even better discounts. I know that you can buy a book online at Target, Walmart, and many more retail websites but I won’t go into that here. The prices are almost never any cheaper than the best online bookstores and when you get a discount code or coupon, it wouldn’t be valid at these retailers.
I’ve got three other tips that’ll help you find the best bargains at online bookstores.
1. Know all your buying options. In this example above, I could have easily gone to the search bar and typed in “The, A Christmas Carol.” There, I would have been presented with a list of every edition of the book published by a number of different publishers.

How to Sell Your Old Books for Free

I also love to get a good deal. I hate paying full price for anything. That’s why I check out all the online bookstores and really search for discounts, coupons and promotions. You can get great deals in these stores: [INSERT DISCOUNTED CODES AND COUPONS HERE]
I also look for eBay coupons and discounts, so I can get the best deal on my outdoor and survival books.
So how do you get the best deal on a book? Here’s how I do it: [INSERT HOW TO SELL YOUR BOOKS HERE]
BookCloseouts.com is one of the sites where I sell my books after I’ve read them (even if they were given to me for free). I get more money than I would selling to a used book store.
