Welcome to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I am so excited about today’s post because I am going to share with you all how I was able to buy some of my favorite books for little to no money!
Books are one of my favorite things! But buying books can be quite expensive and sometimes I want to keep books on my shelf longer than how long the library tells me to! So I recently started visiting my library’s book store and hunting for books that I love.
After a few unsuccessful visits, I found The Mysterious Benedict Society Book 2 in the free basket. Yes, THE FREE BASKET! I was soo happy and I realized that I may end up finding books I want at the book store after all.
Recently, after searching the Library’s Bookstore’s YA section I stumbled across Scarlet. YES SCARLET FROM THE LUNAR CHRONICLES! It was the full hardcover edition.
For only 25 cents.
I screamed in the bookstore. ( if you are interested in buying scarlet you can use my affiliate link 🙂 click mee)
This is why learning how to become a book hunter is one of the most important things to learn if you are a bookworm. It teaches you how to have a sharp eye for good books at thrift stores, yard sales, library bookstores, ANYWHERE!
So let’s begin my very important training on how to become A BOOK HUNTER.
Lesson One: Free First
The first lesson to learn is to always check the free section. I have found many great books in the free section (LIKE THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT socIETY) so ALWAYS CHECK IT.
Lesson Two: speed is the key
Ya snooze, ya lose. Race right over to the section of books you are looking for and make sure you get there before everyone else. ( Just kidding, be respectful kiddos) Make sure you grab all the books you are considering and keep them close, anyone can steal.
Lesson Three: Always bring money
One time I went into the bookstore and I saw a sparkling hardcover edition of Six of Crows. I haven’t read the book yet, but I hear about it everywhere and It looks so pretty. I sadly left my money at home so I couldn’t buy it. The next time I came to the bookstore it was gone 😦
Lesson four: don’t use your eyes only
At Museums, people might say eyes only. At bookstores its the opposite. Use your hands to search through the books. You can’t always tell a book by its spine.
Lesson five: Don’t Overbuy
Don’t buy books that you won’t ever read. They will only take up space in your book shelf
aND THOSE ARE THE BOOK HUNTER SECRETS
Use these lessons as a guide to becoming a book hunter! Have fun on your journey!
