To support my love of books, I purchase books through a variety of sources, with quite a few books purchased from used bookstores and book sales. I like the feeling of giving a book a new home and I also enjoy the challenge of hunting down some titles that might be more difficult to find used. I love it when I can find an unexpected hidden treasure at a great price, such as an autographed copy, a unique edition or cover of a book, or find something that is no longer in print. I will say that it does require some patience… In full disclosure, I am fairly picky about my books (i.e. I don’t like creases in the spine, bent or torn pages or covers, etc), which makes hunting for used books even more interesting! I am always amazed when I can walk away with a hard cover book in great condition for a good price… A great way to support my reading habit and I also feel like I’m getting some “recycled” books.
