The PSA on my Library Project Page, prior to viewing.
On Amazon, there are various prices for softback, hardback, audio, and e-books. I chose the price as if I were actually going to purchase the book. If it were audio, I chose the audio price. If it were an e-book, I went with that and so on.
- For this project, I would research Amazon for any books that I may read (I still add them to my wish list) and then search the library database for them. I added an Amazon link, not because I am not an affiliate, or I am steering you towards purchasing the book, Amazon is just a great way to gather information about the books and prices.
- Prices continuously rise and fall on books but I hope that my spreadsheet gives you some idea of the savings you can obtain from utilizing your local library.
- Notice also, as the number of books I include continues to rise, said books are not gaining clutter in my life.
As always, if you see any improvements, please send them my way. Feel free to copy this diagram for yourself or ask for a link and I can send it to you!
