Sometimes it can feel like splurging on books is more expensive than it should be. Prices for novels are high and, for some, unaffordable. Even older titles, considered classics, can cost more than someone bargained. Many turned to reading books online or downloading audio files because it’s a cheaper alternative to physical books. However, what about the population of readers who love to read from paperbacks and hardcovers? Thankfully, there are companies like Thriftbooks that make it possible to afford books.
Thriftbooks is like an animal shelter for books. The company collects slightly used books from libraries, storage units and other facilities to resell them for cheap prices. The company was started by two entrepreneurs in 2003 and increases in sales every year. It was run out of a storage unit in Seattle for a year before graduating to a warehouse that held 200,000 books to finally a larger warehouse capable of holding 1 million books. The company has also grown from Washington with facilities all over the country. Fans of this company helped it grow by buying books right away and raving about the quality.
Although they offer used books, the book condition is always described before making the purchase. Buyers can choose what level of condition they are willing to pay for. Even books in the “acceptable” category usually only have a few wears and tears. Thriftbooks offers a wide range of books from textbooks to Young Adult, to science fiction and classics. Every reader will find the perfect book for themselves on this site.

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.
