While I probably could have thought of a cheesier title that one just works because it is true.
Years ago when I had more spending money that I do now, I had a slight problem with Barnes & Noble. The bargain bin would call my name and I would answer… leaving with at least two books… every other week or so. It varied in topics from chic lit to bad chic lit to bios to cookbooks and so on and so forth.
Thing is, I really didn’t have that much room for them so it ended up taking over. Thing is now I have the room and not the extra cash.
Cue Alanis Morissette….
Ahhhh nice cheese factor. I feel better.
Back to books…. so I have started keeping an eye out for books at garage sales/rummage sales and library sales. Realistically as long as they are in decent condition and don’t have some sort of funky smell, it’s a good deal. Today I managed to get a paperback copy of Marley & Me and two hard cover Star Trek books for Darth Husband (and probably me as well someday) to read for a grand total of…
I think that is a pretty good deal since if it was cover price and tax it would have been over $50. I read quite quickly and sometimes sporadically so this is a perfect fit. I do still borrow books from the local library but this works quite well. There are no library fines or half read books having to go back. I save money in general.
Now if only someone would get rid of Book 8 and onward of the Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse books.
A girl can dream.
Do you buy used books? Are there places by you where you can get a good deal on books or used books?
