Today I found a book that is like new

I wanted in a Thrift Shop for $0.25. At Barnes and Nobles it was $15.00! I delayed buying it because of the price. Does any one else shop thrift shops for books?

  • Yup, and I sell the ones I don't intend on reading again. But even half price books can be a scam when selling them. We only got like 3 bucks for 30.00 book that they said they were going to sell for like 15-20 bucks!

  • I just bought 6 books for $7 at the flea market! They are all in good shape and they are recent titles so I was excited because I love to read.

  • Thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales are awesome places to pick up books! Most are used, but some are brand new. I find a lot of "oldies but goodies" that I have read over and over again but have worn I also bought my granddaughter little children's books for like a nickel apiece at a flea market before she was born and they were new!
