Kindle Trick to Save Money

I read a LOT of books. Sometimes as many as 300 a year. My daughter is 8 and she also reads a lot. We cannot afford to buy all the books we read. We leverage our local public library and the university library where I’m an alumni quite a lot, as well as the READS ebook system.

I pay for Kindle Unlimited when I’m reading several books off Unlimited in one month.

When I first got my Kindle Paperwhite, I would buy book that I knew I wanted to read (eventually). Now I only buy a book if I know I will read it immediately, or if it’s deeply discounted (or free).

Wishlist Tip

When I add books to my Goodreads, I also add them to a Kindle Wishlist. (You can see mine here.)

Every so often, I check the list.

I sort by Price Low to High, and Items with Pricedrops. Sometimes I find a book on my list for free or for $1.99-3.

First Sort by Price:

Then filter by Pricedrops. (click for bigger image.)
