Weekend Question

This is the second weekend of Weekend Question. It's a meme I created to interact more with my fellow bloggers and followers.

Weekend Question:

Where do you buy your used books?

I personally have been wondering where you get your good deals on used books. I buy my used books at Goodwill, garage sales (florida is like a breeding ground for them). I don't know if any of you know this but when a storage unit goes up for auction you can buy them, a lot of them are filled with books.

Can't wait to hear your answers.

Happy Weekend!

Florida is a garage sale breeding ground. I LOVE that :)

I love Library book sales :)

Well, I'll keep the amount of questions you ask then, Liz. :) This is the 2nd weekend. I hope next week's question is more...applicable to me. I don't buy old books nearly as much as I do new ones. Is that what one would call consumerism?

When I buy used books I usually get them from Half Price Books. Don't know if you have any of them there in Florida, but they're great!

I usually get them from alibris or amazon online. But my favorite way to buy used books, is to go to really old bookstores when I travel. Love old children's books in particular!

Not much English in my used book stores, but found some at the book changing table at the library, and of course bookmoch

I hardly go to the UBS at all, instead I rely on Paperback swap and BookMooch. I love those two sites!

I love library book sales! There's also this GREAT used book store by my house where I used to live in Louisiana, called Book Inn, and every time I am home, I go there. It is cheap and fabulous and filled with room after room after room of used books!!

I am so lucky that my local library- 2 min drive or 7 minute walk- has the best used books ever. Apparently, there is someone in my neighborhood with exceptional taste donating their new reads. I have found books that were releases last month. Ack, you should see me scoop them up.

Also, we have a few great resalers. In fact, I have been hunting high and low for book 2 of one series that I love. I have 1 and 3. I was so happy to find it at a resale shop.

I don't get too many used books but the ones I do have, I've gotten them from library book sales.
