  • Look for local book traders in your area. A lot of those shops you can get books for cheap!

  • 1. Freecycle - a Yahoo group for recycling items for FREE. You can join the group through Yahoo, most cities have one. You offer things and you get to post a wanted. Most all the time there are free books listed on there as an offer. BTW, the products can be left on the porch and be picked up so no security risk.

    2. Depending on where you live, Half Price Books.

    3. Amazon, there are used book dealers offering mostly the same books as you would get for new. You look at the list of used books and select the person to get it from. You can get some for really cheap.

    4. Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity stores often have books.

    5. Library book sales to raise funds for the library.

    7. E-Books, the reader does cost but it ends up saving a lot of money if you love books. There are free books as well as discounted books.

    8. Friends and family - swap them.

  • I forgot one thing. You can download e-book programs from Barnes & Nobles, etc. to your computer and you can read the e-books on there instead of having to buy a Nook or Kindle.

    It's free, all you pay is shipping on the books you send out. Makes each book usually less than $2.

  • Our local thrift shop sells used books 12 for $1.00. I get most of ours there. I completely relate to your book collecting hobby. We have enough books to start a small library now and I gave away almost half of what I had with our last move. (c:
