Books for a Penny!

I love nothing more than putting my feet up with a cup of tea and a pack of custard creams a biscuit or two, and a lovely interiors book to flick through. I recently showed you my stash of interior magazines but my collection of books is also growing with a little help from Amazon.

Some of you may already know this, but for those who don't you can buy used books from Amazon and the prices start at just 1p. I was a little dubious at first thinking the pages would be tatty and torn but I have ordered quite a few and they have all been great. One book was a used library book with the library tag on the spine but I don't mind that, it even had somebody's library ticket inside so I have left it in as a bookmark. Obviously there is p&p to pay on top but still a bargain and still cheaper than some magazines and will last longer.

Here are my favourite buys so far:

The White Home - Caroline Clifton-Mogg

Pure Style - Jane Cumberbatch

The Relaxed Home - Atlanta Bartlett

Country Style - Judith & Martin Miller

Pure Style Outside - Jane Cumberbatch

At Home with White - Atlanta Bartlett

So, next time you buy a book on Amazon, check out the used price first. Lots more book can be seen on my Amazon Wish List here! Have fun shopping :)

Thank you for reading xx

My Reading Wish List 2014


  1. I have a few of those books! Love them. I just ordered the Miss Mustard Seed book which has come right down in price second hand on Amazon too. x

    1. Ooh I haven't heard of Miss Mustard Seed before, just had a look and it looks great - its now on my wish list! Love these style books and even better at a bargain price :) x

  2. This is an excellent idea! As you say, cheaper than a magazine- and probably more pretty pictures too :) xxx


I would love to hear from you xx
