Where to Buy Second Hand Books

Buying second hand books is a great option if you can’t find a book online for free, in your local library or borrow it from a friend. Sometimes you just want to have the copy to keep and go back to, or just to add to a beautiful bookcase! It is also a really positive way of supporting small businesses and reducing our carbon footprint!

A few tips for you:

  • Look where your book is before you order it if it’s from abroad you’ll need to wait much longer for postage and shipping is likely to be much more expensive.
  • Take note of the condition, ideally you probably don’t want a book that is battered and written in, but if you don’t mind that you can find some bargains.
  • Check cost of shipping, different places charge different amounts for shipping so what looks like a great buy can be expensive once shipping is added on.
