Since so many other bloggers share their book hauls, I decided to join in, but with a slight difference. I’ve never seen anyone share how much they spent on their books, which is something I’d love to know. I’m a poor college student. As much as I’d love to spend oodles of money on books as if it grew on trees, I can’t. So, most of my books are free e-books I’ve come across, library books, and ARCs. However, when I do have a little extra cash, and I have a coupon, or know of a sale, I take my wish list and my tote bag to the book store (usually Half Price Books), and I get my book shopping on. I’m always surprised at how many amazing books I find for very little money. I always leave with my tote bag at least half full. On this trip, I only had a coupon for 40% off my highest priced item, but I still left the store with 4 books. My total cost is below.
- Prince Lestat by Anne Rice
- Eight Women Philosophers: Theory, Politics, and Feminism by Jane Duran
- This Book is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save us All by Marilyn Johnson
- The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler
Total Cost: $29.49
Do you have any book hauls that you’re proud of because of how little money you spent?
