Save to Stack Those Shelves | Free & Cheap Books

Hey Guys and Welcome Back!

Can you believe we are already in November? I can’t!
Time is going by so quickly and I believe the year will be over with a blink of an eye. But in the meantime I want to come at you with some Money Saving posts!

Like me i’m assuming your here because you love books? You probably have an addiction to buying books as well don’t you? Hey no judging I promise. I’m guilty for that addiction. Lately I have been seeing so many good deals across the internet for books and I took to twitter to ask if you would like to see a post on this and some of you said yes. So here we are.
Rather than do a giant post on all the deals I have found, I have decided I will be doing individual posts dedicated to that place so that it’s not a super long post. Considering it’s nearly Christmas I thought this would be another great addition to my blog as we could all use that little bit extra of a saving at Christmas right?

**Please note that obviously I am not sponsored by any of the sites which I am featuring**

Today I am coming to you with Amazon deals!


Amazon for me is my go to place for buying books. I have Amazon Prime so I love being able to receive my orders the next day. Amazon is also full of amazing deals from super cheap to FREE books. So let’s explore what it has to offer shall we?


Amazon is full of amazing deals but honestly there are so many products to navigate through on their site, sometimes you miss out on them. So here are some of the paperback books that are all under £5.  Just an example of one of the amazing deals, one of my favourite reads this year The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is £2.00. 

(By clicking on the image you will be taken to the Amazon page for that book)

As well as Paperback books for cheap, you can often find great deals on Hardback books for cheaper than you would at sites like Waterstones. For example John Green’s Turtles All The Way Down which is now £7.00.

Free Books? Is there anything better? I don’t think so. Maybe free food…

What you may not know is if you have an Amazon Prime account you also have access to a bunch of Books and Magazines which are free. For example J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the Comic Ms.Marvel. 

In order to get these and loads of others for free you can read them on your kindle app on your mobile or tablet. The App itself is also free to download. 


Don’t worry you don’t need to pay for Amazon Prime to get amazing deals on books. If you download the free Kindle app you also have access to tons of free e-books they have to offer. Other than the free ones, Amazon also do regular ‘Daily Deals’ and ‘Autumn Sales’ where they slash their prices so you can potentially get e-books for 99p?


It wasn’t until a few years ago that I found out that Amazon also has an Outlet Page and one for books. You can regularly find deals on here for individual books from Paperback to Hardback to also Book Collections of a series. I have to admit the savings on here aren’t very good but sometimes you can find a steal. My recommendation would be to shop around before you go onto here and assume it’s going to be the cheapest because it’s an ‘Outlet’.


Now the one you probably will all know about. Underneath the books Amazon Sells it also shows you how many are also available as Used and New. For example you could get The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater for £0.39.

Most of these then add Postage and Packaging on top. Be Sure to look out for how they describe the Item.I used to buy all my books new but as it’s so expensive, if a book is older and I know I can get it for much cheaper I search the new and used sections for ‘Like New’ books. Remember I once bought a copy of The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor of the Used Site for 1p, they added £2.80 for Postage and Packaging. For £2.81 I ended up getting a SIGNED, FIRST EDITION HARDBACK. An amazing deal. 

So there we have my Savvy Savings post for Amazon. I hope this has shown you how many deals you could get on this site and hopefully also introduced you to some aspects you weren’t familiar with. As I said this is an UN-SPONSORED post. I just love to save money on books because it means I can buy more and I want to share the deals with you because buying books can be so expensive.

I am going to be making this post into a series of sorts. I have a bunch of websites to include and I know one or two are rarely thought of when looking for deals!

Let me know what you think of this post in the comments. I hope you liked it. It was really interesting researching the deals!
What’s the best deal you’ve ever found?

  1. I loved this post series idea! It’s very useful, with Christmas around the corner 😛
    I’ve never bought any book from Amazon. Actually, I’ve only ever bought one thing from the website, and that was my backpack. For books, I usually use Awesome Books and Book Depository.
    But your post was very helpful! I might give it a try someday 🙂

  2. Oh this is such a great idea, Hannah – though… I shouldn’t thank you, I told myself I shouldn’t buy more books until, like, Christmas because I bought too many already 😅😅
    I often use Amazon to buy my books – the French one, though, not the UK one -, but I don’t have a Kindle so I can’t make good use of their Kindle deals 😅. I more than often watch on Book Depository as well, as they might have some books that Amazon doesn’t have. I’m really looking forward to your other blog posts in this series, to discover more websites to spend money I don’t have 😅😅

    1. Do you have an iphone? Because if so you could just download the Kindle app and use that 🙂 I’m so glad i’m enticing everyone to spend their money as much as you guys entice me! Book Bans don’t exist for us do they? We try but turning down a book deal is so so hard
