Beat Amazon book prices with Flubit right here, right now

Thought Amazon was the cheapest option for buying books? Think again! I recently heard about the great work that ‘demand-driven’ marketplace is doing with the National Literacy Trust for their Book Month and found that Flubit’s prices on books are much more reasonable.

Usually accessible by invitation only, for Book Month has removed the invite step so new users can sign up and demand better offers on all their favourite books. Whether its romance, thriller, mystery, kids, fiction, whatever type of book you’re after, beat Amazon prices and get a better price for your book at I am going to show you exactly how with some examples down below!

As I explained in my previous post on Flubit, it is on online marketplace, much like Amazon or eBay but with one major difference – instead of listing pages and pages of various products, offers and discounts, you simply enter the URL (that’s the web-link, e.g. www….) of the Amazon item you wish to buy, and Flubit returns a better offer up to 15% lower on that exact item with one of their own suppliers.

Speaking of which, here’s some of the top trending books on Flubit right now… perfect for a little bank holiday reading or packing in your suitcase for your late summer holidays:

The Fault in our Stars

We could only start with one book, couldn’t we? The Fault in our Stars is a 2012 novel by John Green. Its big screen adaptation was released earlier this year, and it’s been something of a surprise hit, drawing in over $250 million at the box office with a budget of only $12 million. If you’ve seen the film and want to read the book or you want to find out what all the fuss is about, you’re far from alone. Already read it? Other John Flynn favourites include Looking For Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines.

The Goldfinch

It’s no surprise that Donna Tartt’s third novel is on the list, given that it recently won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The first-person narration in the novel comes from the retrospective musings of Theo Decker. We don’t want to spoil the plot here, but the book’s been described as ‘Dickens with guns.’ What more could you want? If you loved The Goldfinch, check out If I Never Went Home, Something Like Spring and The Pecan Man.

The Cuckoo’s Calling

A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London – from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho – The Cuckoo’s Calling, the acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith is simply a must-read! Looking for more Cormoran Strike, check out The Silkworm.

The Shock of the Fall

Nathan Filer’s debut was named the 2013 Costa Book of the Year. The Shock of the Fall tells the story of a boy trying to cope with the death of his older brother. The book covers tricky ground sensitively, tackling issues such as grief and mental illness with a deft touch. Fans of The Shock of the Fall will also enjoy The Shadow Year and The Night Rainbow.
