Whenever I look for a book I go through several steps.
Since I tend to be rather frugal, I always start with our local library. You can check out audiobooks from your local library using the free Libby app.
To use Libby, you need a library card and, of course, the app. I often find the library has the audiobook I am looking for.
For example, recently a friend of mine recommended Discipline is Destiny by Ryan Holiday. I had to wait a few weeks, but it is now available. I am going to listen to it on a long car ride today.
Only after looking at Libby do I check Scribd. Scribd quite often has the audiobook I am looking for.
Finally, I will take a look at Audible.
If I need a physical copy of a book, again I first check the library.
If the library doesn’t have the book I am looking for, I take a look at Half Price Books.
To find out if an author has written other books, I check out bookfinder.com.
In my experience, bookfinder.com gives the most comprehensive list of an author’s work. It’s a good place to do some quick research.
When it comes to books, there is also goodreads.com. To be honest, I can’t handle goodreads.com. I am easily distracted. I find myself spending way too much time on that site. So, I avoid it. But, that’s just me. Most people seem to love goodreads.com.
So, there you have it. If you are looking for a hard-to-find book this Christmas season, these sites should help!
