Reading when You're Broke (KEERT)

Getting that extra cash for books can be a struggle. If you keep up with most of the book community, it can be a bit depressing to see everyone reading all the books you wish you could afford. Reading can be expensive. I’ve learned some ways to do what I love without having to spend. Here are some ways to read when you’re broke!

If you don’t have a library card, go get one right now. Yes they might not always have what you want and sometimes you have to wait for someone to return the book you want. But, at most libraries, you can request a book. If they don’t have any copies, they’ll have another library ship it to them. Most libraries have networks. Most libraries also have an online e-book/audiobook service like Overdrive! If you have a smartphone, you can download the book or read it in your browser. You can do the same thing on a computer. Libraries are the best tool for reading when you’re broke.

Yes, you can find great books at stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army. I’ve dropped off books at Goodwill myself. Please leave these donated books for people who really can’t afford them another way unless that’s you! has the best deals. All of the books are new unless they’re specifically labeled as not and the normal price range is around $2-$5 per book. They’re rarely more than $5. They also update regularly! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just keep checking back.

Book Depository
Book Depository has almost every book you can think of including new releases, international editions, and more. Plus, free shipping worldwide. Sometimes it’s difficult to find a reasonably priced book, and even if you do, the price will be outrageous.

These are my preferred methods and I hope they help! Reading is such a wonderful thing and it shouldn’t be limited to only those who can afford hard copies. Thanks for reading!
