Welcome to my book recommendations page! This isn’t entirely related to my usual content, but I love reading so much that it has to be a part of this blog in some way. Check back often, I’m always discovering new books!! And definitely, 100%, race-to-the-send-button assuredly, without a doubt, I am always open to talking about books. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, especially if you’ve read one of my favorites below!!
Where do I buy my books?
I buy books fairly often, and that price tag can really add up. I’m also weak, so if I’m aware that I’m within 2 miles of a Barnes & Noble, there’s a 96.78% chance I’m going in. Once I pass the threshold, there’s a 100% chance I’m buying something. Sadly, buying books at retail gets pricey.
While I’m always willing to support my beloved brick and mortar retailer and local independent booksellers, I’ll only do that if I a) happen to be nearby or b) need a book today.
Otherwise, my very first stop is Book Outlet*. This website is superb; they have thousands of titles, up to 90% off! On my last order, I bought four books (one hardcover!) for $21.96. That’s four for the price of one retail book! They don’t have everything, and I highly advise you know what titles you’re interested in before going in (there are a lot of less than great titles in the mix), but when you find your book? Savings.
If it’s not on Book Outlet, I shop Amazon. Big surprise, right?
*For complete transparency, I will say again, I’ve linked to each of these books with an Amazon affiliate link. While your purchase through these links helps me, it in no way causes additional cost to you. Additionally, I am a also a Book Outlet affiliate, but I have been shopping their site for years prior and my recommendation is an honest opinion.
