Finding Discount Books for Your Homeschool

Buying books all the time can get expensive. As homeschoolers, we often search for great books to read with our kids, or books we want to use as part of our homeschool curriculum. Either way, finding discount books is always a happy moment.

Finding Discount Books for Your Homeschool

I am always honest, and continue to be. I don’t buy many books. We are big fans of public libraries. If I think a book is going to be read and re-read I’ll consider buying it.

There are some books that I make exceptions for: homesteading books we have borrowed from the library and I feel are worth buying because I am going to use it as a reference often, my Nora Roberts books because I do re-read them and they are one of the only things I buy myself twice a year.

Where to Get Discount Books

Book Outlet

I have used this one recently and I was impressed. Not only with the price of books but also with the fast shipping, and the quality of the books. They arrived in amazing condition. We’ll be ordering more books from BookOutlet again.


You can find used books on Amazon. Also make sure to check out Warehouse Deals too. We buy more things from Amazon’s Warehouse Deals in general than from the new sales on te site.

Amazon also offers textbook rental too. I did not know this until recently, but we also aren’t at the point of needing textbooks yet.

At Thrift Books, you can find books at very low prices, and there are often extra money-saving deals and bonuses on offer too.

Book Depository

This site doesn’t have a lot of used books, but their new books are actually much cheaper than the used ones you’d find in online and local bookstores.
