With unemployment on the rise and the economy the way it is, many people are searching for cheaper entertainment. Good news! Reading can actually be cheap entertainment!
There are many shops that sell used books. Thrift stores, Goodwill, there are even whole stores dedicated just for used books. Peruse the shelves and see what's there. You'll be amazed. I've found M.C. Beaton books for $7.50, hardback.
2. Go to your local library:
You've probably heard of doubling your wardrobe by having clothing swaps with your friends. Well, to double your library of books have book swaps with them too! gather your friends and tell them to bring books that they've already read and want to exchange for another book they want to read. This swap is better than swapping clothes anyway because you'll never have to worry if a book is "in your size". ;)
swapping books is a growing trend with swapping parties, large organized swapping events, and even online swapping sites.
Until next time!,
