The books above, and the toothpaste? Just over $25 from our most recent Amazon order.
I don’t think it’s possible to spoil children by giving them too many books. Costco, book fairs and Amazon are the top three places that I buy books for the children and I usually find at least six or seven books for twenty five dollars, in our monthly order of books to add to our home library. I prefer hardcover books, as I find them to be more durable, but soft cover books are even less expensive, as low as $1.99 for books that were originally ten times that price.

Now you’ve narrowed it down to the books on Amazon that are under five bucks and considered to be a ‘bargain’. At this time, I usually use the menu on the left hand side to narrow down the choices to hardcover only and I scroll through the pages of books that are available.
As long as you are use the computer and shop while you’re logged into your Amazon account, the books will remain in your cart until you are ready to check out. I always wait until I’ve got at least $25 worth of books in my cart, to take advantage of the free shipping, or I add something like toothpaste on to my order so I can get over the free shipping threshold.
NOTE: For some reason, there are adult books that show up in the section too. You just need to scroll through and look. Don’t sort by price, because the one penny books aren’t eligible for free shipping. It does take a bit of time, but after a while you get used to keeping your eye out for the best bargain books, for cheap.
Remember though, the prices on Amazon are changing all the time. A lot of the time it’s favorable to when I’m shopping, I’ll come back the next day, or at bedtime to find the prices of the books have been reduced by a dollar or so. At the same time, the books are reduced because there are few left in many cases, so buying quickly before the books sell out and return to regular price is at your advantage.
