9 Inspirational Bargain Books for the Family

Updated on August 18, 2014

Super Books at Bargain Prices

I have to be honest, books are a passion of mine so when I see a bargain on one I grab it.

About a month ago while on a business trip I stopped in a Bible Book Store with the hopes of finding some great deals on books. Indeed I did and I came out feeling absolutely blessed with the bargain prices I found.

I'd like to share with you the brand new books I bought at bargain prices that would have cost me $153 had I paid full price for them.

You will notice that most of these fall into certain catagories in my career field, but they also cover other areas that I am concerned about in my own life.

Who Got the Better Bargain?

Whenever my husband and I get the opportunity to go into a book store we take advantage of it. Most of the time we set a cap on what we are going to spend. Our normal budget allots each of us to spend a certain amount on any book(s) we want.

On this particular trip we found super prices and so one of us (I won't say who) went over their limit, but I had to admit the deals were pretty good.

I ended up with 9 books (7 hardback and 2 paperback), but he only got 6. My books would have cost me $153.00 at full price for 9 books for an average of $17.00 per book for retail price.

His retailed at $56.00 for only 6 books (all paperback) for an average of $18.66 per book, leaving me with the better bargain even at retail prices. BUT, we didn't pay the retail price of the books. We got our books at a super baragain price, which you can too from this site. Take a look at the books I purchased.

      @julieannbrady: It's great that you put the books back into circulation. The local library, church libraries, senior high rises, shelters, hospitals, assisted living, nursing homes and schools are some other places that often take used books in good condition. Thanks for doing your part Julie.

      Oh my, I have been a shopper of bargain books from way back -- and just recently decided to share my collection as I systematically went through my books and took them to the Goodwill. I've kept my Hungarian and Eastern European books, but pretty much everything else is out in distribution!

      @Camden1: Thanks. We're like little kids when we go to book stores. We want so many it's sometimes hard to select a few. This time I was blessed not having to pick just a few.
