Whether you’re interested in adult novels, romantic reads, or re-reading Harry Potter for the umpteenth time (guilty!), buying books and ebooks can get costly. You don’t have to just scour the internet anymore to find the best inexpensive reads. We’ve got the interweb’s best open secret on where to score books for a fraction of the cost.


BookBub, which you can think of as the Kayak for eBooks, will show you where all the best deals for your next fave read can be found — some are even free! When you sign up on the website, just tell them what you like to read, and then you’ll get a daily email showing you all the deals. From there, you can head over to the Amazon Kindle store (or wherever you get your eBooks) to purchase your new reading material.

Books that have been featured by the editorial team include GRRM’s A Game of Thrones, John Irving’s The Cider House Rules and more. Some people have discovered series that they never would have otherwise, and it’s all because BookBub curates your daily email to YOUR tastes, not necessarily what’s new or popular. Maybe you like indie books by critically acclaimed authors. Maybe you like books from top-tier publishers. Maybe you like mystery or romance or sci-fi. Maybe you just like cookbooks. You can pretty much find whatever you need, and you can find it at a bargain.

The internet booksellers don’t just direct you to where you can find bestsellers on sale — you can also find little known, self-published hits as well. In fact, self-publishers can directly submit their manuscript to BookBub. And you even though they’re self-pubbed, you can still rest assured that standards for these books are high — BookBub sifts through their submissions and rejects 80 to 90 percent of the slush pile.

You’ve really got nothing to lose (and everything to gain) from expanding your mind with fresh material. So what are you still here for? Be sure to spread the news with your friends — maybe you can even start a book club ;)
