Books make the best presents. And we’re including the sort of presents you buy for yourself too. But even though nothing beats browsing your local bookshop, sometimes our budget doesn’t quite stretch to paying full price for a pristine hardback edition. So how can you use the internet to seek out a book bargain? Well, here are a few pointers to help you on your way to building that home library…
Bargain Boxsets for Less with Discount Codes from The Book People
As well as the more obvious large online retailers, there are plenty of smaller sites that specialise in getting discounted paperbacks straight to your door. One such site is The Book People. We highly recommend regularly browsing through their range to see what you can pick up for a fraction of the retail price. One of the things this site does really well is box sets and among their current selection is the complete Roald Dahl Collection which consists of 15 books for only £15.99. Bear in mind the full retail price is a whopping £88.85. And if you want to jump on The Hunger Games bandwagon, this is the place to do it – buy the trilogy for only £4.99 and save £15.98. For even more of a discount, you can also use this The Book People voucher code that saves you 10% when you spend £35 or more.
Mouthwatering Savings on Cookbooks with The Works Promo Codes
Another great site that you need to know about is The Works. Although the range of titles might not be as extensive as other sites, they sure do make up for it in price. There are many paperbacks for as little as £1.99, as well as me top notch cookbooks to get your mouth watering – How to Bake by Paul Hollywood is reduced to £9.99 from £20 and The Masterchef Cookery Course is now only £10 (was £26). You can save even more on your order with this The Works discount voucher that gets you an additional 15% off when you spend £20 or more.
