We try to take her to a goodwill/thrift store every payday and let her pick out 7 or 8 of them. We pay less for that than one book new, and they are usually in great shape.

We used to go every few months but I found the kids were never actually reading the books. They would beg for them and then they just sit on their shelves. Now we mostly just buy them when we get our taxes back. We always take a trip to Barnes & Noble and let them pick out a bunch each. We usually spend over $200 on that trip alone and I rarely get anything.
When we lived in PA there was a thrift store down the street and someone donated a bunch of Golden Books and those Disney ones (that you used to be able to get for $1 when you bought the movie or from their club) and every week I would go down there and pick a bunch up. Whatever I could find for $.50-$1 each. We have pretty big collections of them now and all were in good condition.
