  • I rarely buy new - I go to and then look at the used books. Most titles I get for .01 to .99 and then it's like 2 or 3 bucks to ship it. So typically for no more than $4 I get the book I want and it is in great condition 9 out of 10 times - but who cares really? You are just gonna read it and pass it.

  • I normally buy books at amazon (for newer titles), yard sales and thrift shops...I also swap books with a few friends if they have something that I want to read...Childrens books I buy from the same places and from the school bookfair (only because it benefits the school, those things are overpriced imo)...
