The Bookworm’s Secret to Saving Money on Ebooks

My third-grade teacher introduced me to sustained silent reading decades ago, and bookworm has been my entire personality ever since. I love loading up my Kindle, but my main gripes are that 1) ebooks aren’t cheap and 2) it can take forever to get a new book from the library.

Sometimes it feels like I’m forced to choose between reading the new must-read book or keeping my budget in check. But with BookBub, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

What Is BookBub?

BookBub is a service that offers awesome discounts on ebooks. You can sign up for free and let BookBub know what kinds of books you’re interested in. From there, you’ll start receiving deals on books personalized to your particular reading tastes. Then, all you have to do is buy the book from your favorite ebook retailer like Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

I’m not kidding about these deals, either. You can get some of the biggest ebooks for up to 95% off. BookBub had Colleen Hoover’s Verity for just $3, and The Maid by Nita Prose for $2. The deals don’t last for long, so you have to scoop them up when you see them. But new deals go live every day, so there’s always an awesome discount on a book you’ll be sure to love.

And the cool thing is there are new deals every single day across over 40 categories, so you won’t be stuck waiting for new deals or only seeing deals for genres you don’t like. Plus, the books come from a wide range of publishers and authors. From New York Times bestsellers to hidden gems, BookBub has deals on it all.

Basically, BookBub does the hard work of finding the ebook sales for you, so you can spend more time cozying up with a book and a warm mug of coffee, and less time worrying about your book budget.

Get Alerts for Books on Your Wishlist

Do you want to be notified when a book on your wishlist goes on sale? You bet you can do that with BookBub!

When you sign up, you can select authors to follow. That way, you know as soon as any of their books, new or old, go on sale. And if there’s an individual book you’d like to snag, you can save a list of your most wanted books and BookBub will notify you when those books are discounted.

This has been a game-changer for me. Now, I can affordably stock up on my favorite authors so I always have their ebooks with me, and it’s a great way to grab their most recent release without having to sacrifice your budget or wait for your turn at the library.

Make Room on Your TBR List

If you’re anything like me, you were born with a To Be Read list so long, you know you’ll never read them all. But that’s no reason why you can’t add a few more books to the list. And when the books are discounted up to 95%, you don’t have to feel guilty about loading up your ereader or smartphone reading app.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have several new books to catch up on thanks to BookBub, and they aren’t going to read themselves…
