5 Ways to Read if you can’t Afford Books

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island,” said Walt Disney. But that treasure is not accessible by all. Although reading is a wonderful activity and the person who reads is a man of precious jewels, this hobby can itself be so expensive that not everyone could read them. Should that stop you from reading? NO.

Here are 5 ways to read if you can’t afford books –

  1. Borrowing books from a library is one of the best options out there. The value a library provides is immense as you get scores of titles (classics, new releases) and maybe, different editions there. Also, the feeling of wandering in the alleys of a library is beyond words.
  2. Having a Kindle account is just amazing! There are many free classics books available on Amazon Kindle. In addition to this, kindle is super easy to handle and very much cost-effective. The kindle deals are one great thing to buy loads of books and read them anywhere.
  3. If you do love to listen to audiobooks, there are apps like storytel and audible available. The best part is they are pocket-friendly on a monthly basis and you can tune in to favorite stories anytime, anywhere.
  4. Websites like Project Gutenberg, Netgalley, Feedbooks, Ebookscart are other cost-effective ways to read more at zero cost. You won’t spend a penny but would get to read lots of classics as well as new releases. Isn’t that just fab?
  5. Do you attend book fairs or thrift stores? Just because you are tight on your budget, you cannot give up on reading. There are shops and fairs which get you access to second-hand books at a cheaper rate. Although they are used, you cannot deny the beauty of diving into old books.

I hope these ideas help you read more even if there’s no money. Remember, owning a book might be a great idea but reading it, in reality, would only serve you good.

Happy reading 🙂
