Save money on books either going to the library or buying them at garage sales and book stores.  Books with great pictures are a frugal find.  You can frame pretty pictures from books, or us them for craft projects, such as decoupage.  You can also use colorful pictures as wrapping paper.

If you do a lot of reading, consider buying an electronic book reader, like a Kindle.  You don't have to spend any money on gas to get them, and you can subscribe to lists that will send you free books you can download daily or find them on the Internet.

You can also download free books from the public library.  In our area, you get them for 21 days, and then they are removed from your computer without you having to do a thing.
