Last year I shared a 4 part series on how to build a home library inexpensively.
Since then I have discovered a few more ways to grow your home library for either free of almost free.
Real paper and hard back books
Tyndale Rewards: Tyndale Rewards is a relatively new point program that offers you free books in exchange for filling out surveys, leaving reviews, sharing the program with others and various other tasks. As I have shared I have been able to earn one free book every month or so through Tyndale Rewards.
Noise Trade: NoiseTrade offers free downloads of more than just music. It also offers a free audio recording of a book about once every 2 weeks or so. I have picked up 3 great titles so far through NoiseTrade. I found out about this website through Money Saving Mom and once I downloaded my first free book I started receiving 1 to 2 emails a week that contain their newest offerings including audiobooks should they be offering a new one.
eReaderGirl: I love eReaderGirl for what I think is one of the best daily listings of free or deeply discounted ebook titles out there (most are kindle books). eReaderGirl shares titles in both fiction and nonfiction as well as children’s titles. (remember you don’t need a kindle to read kindle books there are apps. out there for computers and various tablets, plus a kindle cloud option so you can read wherever from whatever)
New Point Programs offering gift cards and coupons you can use for books or ebooks
Although not a free gift card Recycle Bank is currently offering a $5 off $25 purchase to Half Off Books, a store I love for their great selection of used book titles.
An article with even more places to find free books
20 Places To Find Free Books Online over at Northern Cheapskate has many websites for free ebook and audio books that I have never heard of before. I pinned it to my homeschooling board on Pinterest so that I can access these resources whenever I need a book.
