Knowing what to get, how to get them, and when it might be a good time to stop.
Book hauls are one of the easiest ways to make your book collection full and diverse with tons of new books. Monthly book hauls are even better because you stay up-to-date with new marital to quench your cravings of new books to read.
Book hauls are good in a since, but we all know they hurt our pocket books. Books have become very pricey on today's market. But I'm here to tell you that most the books I own, I never had to pay full price for them. Here are a few of my favorite places to buy books that are "on sale" or cheaper than normal book stores like B&N or Books.A.Million.
Now, don't laugh cause these places most of you have heard about. The first place I usually go to for books is Target. Target is one place I know that takes 20 to 30% off new arrivals that come to their stores. A $24 hardback, poof just turned into a $17 one. It's like the book fairy came magical changed the price just for you. Another place I tend to get a lot of cheap books is at my local grocery store. Many local stores carry books, and most of these books aren't set at the sale price listed in the back of the book. It's just another way to save your money, so you can buy even more books. ;)
Another way to save when you go to the bookstore is to become a member at said bookstore. For example becoming a member at Barnes & Noble or Books.A.Million. Many members get perks when it comes to books; like free shipping when you order books through their sites, getting weekly coupons you can use towards buying books, or getting a small percent off on any item in the store. Now here's a warning, these memberships don't come cheap, but once you get on it's good for the whole year. So all those perks, you get them for an entire year. If you get a membership, it'll be your golden ticket on the cheap book express.
Now those are ways you can get the most bang for your buck, but now how do you know what books to buy? And that answer is as simple as the question sounds; it's the books you want to buy of course. It can be a new release, a classic, or a recommendation. Any books are great. So don't be afraid to try something old or something new whenever choosing new a read.
So, you now know what books to get and how to get them, but now when do you know when to stop? Now if your a dedicated fangirl, or fanboy, then you already know to answer to this on as well. It's pretty easy to guess this one too. The answer; you don't . . . unless you're either out of money, out of book space on your bookshelves (which you'll most likely get more shelves and buy more books), or are out of book recommendations you want to buy (which is highly unlikely). Once one starts, they can never stop buying books!
So there you have it, all you need to know about book hauls. If there are different ways you do book hauls, I'd love to hear about them, please feel free to leave them in the comments below. So until next time, drink some coffee, love a cat, watch out for them feels, and remember to always read fearlessly!
