We’re telling you how to get more books for your money as Christmas approaches
  • READ ALL ABOUT IT: During the pandemic, many libraries are offering little-known online services, and they are brilliant. From free downloadable audio books to e-books, I’ve been using my local one and I’ve saved lots. Start by checking your local council website and you should be able to follow the links from there. In London, I can download five audiobooks, plus music, and for kids there are comic books. The cookery books are my fave — perfect for Christmas meal-planning.
  • APPY DAYS: FarFaria and Kidlo are brilliant apps, with books, games and interactive stories for kids. They even have nursery rhymes too — just avoid the in-app purchases.
  • SECONDHAND: While I’m a charity shop regular, if you can’t leave the house at the moment, try worldofbooks.com or musicmagpie.co.uk. The latter has a two-for-£2.99 offer on books including David Walliams’s Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy, or two for a fiver. They’re £5.99 each at Waterstones. Use Facebook groups such as The Book Cafe to sell, buy or swap books with other users too.
  • E-BOOK IT: If you have a Kindle, don’t forget there are plenty of kids’ e-books available for 99p. For more choice, use free trials. You can sign up to Kindle Unlimited, which will give you access to a million books for 30 days. Plus, a 30-day Audible trial will let you download audiobooks such as How To Train Your Dragon for nothing. Just remember to cancel before the month is up.
  • BARGAIN WINS: Bulk buy with The Works’s ten-for-£10 picture book bundles, usually £69.90. B&M is also great for cheap deals, and Facebook book group members love to share deals by posting where they have spotted cheap buys.
