Read, Read, Read. Thatâ€™s probably the best piece of advice I ever got. Recently itâ€™s all about business books and unfortunately, these are quite expensive around here.
So, how did my business bookshelf grew from a handful to more than 30 books in less than a year? One word – BookMooch.
It’s an amazingÂ book swapping site where you list books you want to give, get points for mailing them to others and use those points to get books you want. Iâ€™ve mailed and received books from almost 20 countries around the world, Including Tahiti.
As a rough estimate, books from BookMooch actually cost me (for the postage on books I send) around 5-5.5$ per book. In comparison, a new paperback will go for 21-25$ here in Israel.
I also listen to audio books while commuting or exercising, and while I agree with the criticism of DRM practices,Â from time to time I also take advantage of various audible promotions to buy some audio books for really low prices.
Now, if only I could find some time to actually read all those books!
