Does it all add up

Postby money blogger » Thu Oct 08, 2009 10:43 am

I was just thinking of the savings this could result in.

If you were purchasing a book a week at barnes and nobles, you probably paid on average $10.58 per book. That's an $8.00 difference per book, and at 52 per year, you're looking at a savings of $416 per year.

Not bad at all. Now if people could drink 3 fewer lattes per week, they could be rich. lol

Thanks for the heads up on this site

And just imagine how much a smoker would save by quitting!

Looks like a good way to supplement the library. I'll have to check it out.

I wonder if there is any kind of similar service for textbooks? I'll have to look into it.

I love Project Gutenberg; it's a fantastic place to get out-of-copyright books for free:
