I should admit from the outset – I’ve wholesale stolen this idea from The Dabbler, where they occasionally feature reviews of books which are available from a penny (plus postage) on Amazon. I thought I’d collect a whole bunch of ideas for 1p shopping – more affordable to indulge in for yourself whilst doing your Christmas shopping, perhaps?
To offset this, since I know some people aren’t absolutely certain about Amazon, I’ll also mention something which was emailed to me today – Better World Books, which has opened a UK site for selling books, and contributes money to literacy initiatives.
And if you’re concerned about authors getting the money themselves, feel free to use these suggestions to buy new copies of the books.
Caveats over; back to 1p books… I’m afraid this is only for the UK Amazon site. They might be cheap in dollars or euros or… no, these are the only currencies I can think of. Pesatas don’t exist any more, do they? OH! Swiss Francs! Now I’m out.
