Book Shopping At Its Best: The Top Six Places To Go For Books

Book Shopping At It’s Best: The Top Six Places To Go For Books!
 
We live in a very technologically advanced era today; that fact cannot be denied. Most people are far happier sat in front of a TV than read a book, and so much so that reading has become an art form. However, popular novels like the Harry Potter series have largely revived reading and more people are enjoying it today than had been the case in years! As a result, more people are investigating various outlets when it comes to book shopping. Indeed, if you are looking for cheap books, then you may want to try out the following top six places to buy them:
 
  1. The Internet
Books have always been readily available for the majority of people but the new technology that had drawn people away from reading has actually made it more accessible than ever before. You can buy books on literally millions of websites on the Internet with some being sold for next to nothing. It is very easy to log on, select the book that you want and pay, and then there are the used marketplaces too. Individuals can sell their older books for a little extra cash, thus allowing someone else to benefit from it. All of this makes the Internet one of the cheapest places to buy books around.
 
  1. Book Clubs
Book clubs are indeed great places to pick up a bargain because many clubs offer their members new and old titles at major discounted prices. Some also offer book bundles of two or three books at a further discount, thus making them great value. However, beware of the terms and conditions of book clubs because the majority of them will have some sort of membership requirement. For example, you may have to buy X amount of books in the first one or two years. There are a few that have no requirements at all, but those that do usually have spectacular sales at some stage so you can make further savings.
 
  1. Jumble Sales/Fund Raisers
Jumble sales and fundraisers are great places to buy books. There will almost certainly be a bookstall at every single one, with the books being sold off for just a few pence in most cases. Therefore, you can literally buy ten books for the price of one at the retail price, and often more! When individuals plan these, they always have a bookstall because when they ask individuals for items to sell, the most popular item given is the book. This also goes for charity shops, where you can also pick up books for very little. Why not buy a great book and help a good cause at the same time?
 
  1. Garage/Car Boot Sales
Unlike the fundraiser, you will not be helping a good cause by purchasing a book at a car boot or a garage sale. However, this is a great place to pick up books because you can haggle with the individual holding the sale itself. As all items sold are for the personal benefit of someone else, it is often because they need a little extra cash or just want to get rid of unwanted items and so you can pick up some great books for very little. Just be aware that you will often have to search through many books to find just one or two that you want.
 
  1. Discount Book Stores
Discount book stores can be found in most major high streets, shopping centres and malls. They usually feature older books rather than the newer titles and often sell the books for around 10% of the retail price. The copies may not be of the best quality but the work is still the same so you get the same pleasure at a fraction of the price!
 
  1. Large Retailers
Large retailers are beginning to rival the major bookstores as the most popular centres of book purchasing. That is largely because they are convenient for everyone, easy to get to and stock all of the latest releases, but at a fraction of the price. Large retailers can afford to sell the books so cheaply because they sell everything else and have massive net profits. And we reap the benefits!
