For this, I am going to provide three different comparisons on a singular book. This comparison will be used on the popular, YA fantasy novel- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
This is just a randomly chosen book, and if you want more comparisons I can provide them at a later date. However, this should be fine for now!

These prices are not fabricated or calculated by me, I googled book stores and chose the top three links and typed in ‘Throne of Glass’. However, it demonstrates exactly what I am trying to convey- the average price of this book is very expensive.

Now I have chosen these sites, compared to other more popular ones, as I truly believe it will save you a significant amount of money if you are someone like me, who buys tons of books.

However, keep in mind these are Australian sites, in Australian prices. So, these sites may not work for you, or the prices may be different compared to which country you are from.

Now, if I had more money, I’d personally purchase a book from each site and give you a physical comparison on these books. Like, I have honestly have roughly $40 in my bank account currently, and I got paid yesterday. Too much information? Probably, but I felt it was necessary to put in this disclaimer. I am a broke University student, so cut me some slack!

That’s all for today! Hopefully, you guys found some sites that has all the books you like to read! Personally, my favourite two sites out of the five of these are definitely ThriftBooks and Book Depository!
