My family and I fled Vietnam when I was a baby and immigrated to the United States. I only spoke Vietnamese until I started first grade. It was a struggle to learn English as well as reading and writing. I was placed in the lower reading groups until fourth grade when I finally overcame the language barrier and began to excel in school. That is also when my love of reading began. My family was not wealthy so there were no fancy vacations or after school activities. Reading was my only exposure to new places and experiences. My love for reading grew over time and as an adult I am completed addicted. I read at every opportunity. So far this year I’ve read 47 books and am on pace to read 80 by the end of the year. You can imagine that reading so many books can get expensive.
I am thrilled to have discovered Thriftbooks.com to help me save money on books. The site offers a selection of over 7 million books at great prices. You can find out-of-print and second-hand treasures with just a quick search of the website. I recently ordered 5 books off my to-read list for $18.37.
Buying the books new would have cost $71.95. I saved 75% on the cost of these 5 books!
The savings don’t end there. Did you notice that my shipping was FREE? Every Thriftbooks.com order over $10 ships for FREE! My books arrived via DHL/USPS in several shipments from different locations in the United States.
Thriftbooks.com also offers a loyalty rewards program. For every $50 you spend, you receive $5 coupon to spend on more books! These books are headed to the beach with me this summer.
I can’t wait to finish these books and order more. Try Thriftbooks.com to feed your reading addiction without breaking the bank.
