Well the last book I brought was on local history and that came from the local bookshop in the next town. The book before that I brought online as it wasn't in the shops. The one before that a charity shop. The one before that the local large supermarket.

I buy most of my books online at Barnes & Nobel. I like the fact that I get a discount and if I order $25 I don't pay shipping. I don't have to use gas or lug heavy books home.

I'm not looking for any book, just wondering with so many other places than the local bookshop to buy books where other people brought there books.

Hey Anne I sometimes will buy a bulk of books on ebay . Also , when at a fair , or flea market I will pick some up . About 2 times a year I will go to a half price book store and buy some .

I buy my books from Barnes And Knobles. I love that place and they have a great bargain book section as well.

I get mine at a used bookstore in town. I usually don't pay more than a quarter for a paperback book.

I go to a local used book store most times now when I want to buy a book. I used to go to Borders all the time, and also Barnes and Noble's store online, www.bn.com. They give free shipping to U.S. patrons if the order is 25 dollars or more.

The majority of my books came from a used book-store for a quarter. Unfortunately the book-store closed down. I will pick-up a book at Wal-Mart sometimes. Most of my books nowadays comes from the library. I will either check them out or go to the back where you can pick-out up to 20 paperbacks for free. I always take my used paperbacks back to the library when I'm done.

I never buy new books as I have so many now that have been purchased at garage or yard sales.. I have so many that I am going to read as soon as I get the time.. I always have a book on hand which I am reading, but before I catch up on the ones that I have, I find more.. I have found new hardcover books for as little as .50 each, so I buy everyone that appeals to me, I do prefer the hardcovers, so when I find them and they look like my type of reading, I purchase quite a few of them.. So, I have quite a bit of "stock" just waiting on me to get the time to read them.. My son does however always buy new books for me, especially on holidays, Mothers day, Christmas, and birthdays, he purchases most of the best sellers at Walmart..

i usually browse used books section of our local bookstore. books are cheaper but i make sure that these are in good condition. i also try to browse ebay and other on-line selling sites. going to a book store is an adventure itself for me and its always a delight for me whenever i'm able to buy a book. the lates book i got was co-written by snoop dogg. it's entitled "love don't live her anymore" and it comes with a free audio cd. the book is less than $3 and it really looks brand new. talk about a steal.
