No Book Buying Challenge 2015 – March Update
As you know, we are co-hosting the Show Your Shelves Some Love: A No Book Buying Challenge. You can also review the details of the post on the “No Book Buying Challenge“ page from the menu above. For March we are sharing our sources for free books. So where do you get your books for free? How many books have you read for this challenge so far?
My sources for free books outside of the library and Netgalley:
So far I’ve read less than a handful of books from my TBR, but I’m really trying to get my routine figured out and see where I can squeeze in some reading time at home. I’ve listened to a few books, but only the ones you see below I count for this challenge.
I have embedded my Goodreads shelf so that I can share the books I read as I go.
Lynn: Most of the free books I read are from the library. I also subscribe to Book Bub and Bookperk. Audible has a daily deal email. My e-reader is a nook, and there are usually $2.99 and under deals on the Barnes and Noble website. There are probably loads more websites and emails to subscribe to. But to me, nothing can beat the library. This month, all of the books I read were from the library. I didn’t make a dent in my challenge list. But on the plus side, I also didn’t buy any new books.
Rose: I do not have any great sources for free books. For a while I was netgalley happy, but then LIFE happened, I my stats are so dismal, I doubt I would get approved for any arcs even if I searched, which I no longer do. (at least while I am working full time and student teaching full time.) I also get emails daily from Book Bub about free books. I have not clicked too many lately. Working all of these hours and teaching all of these hours is impossible!!!! AHHHH!!!!
