Do you buy books new? Major booksellers struggling...
March 21, 2008 1:38am CST
Borders may be selling out and Barnes & Nobel is seeing a drop in profits as well. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080320/ap_on_bi_ge/booksellers;_ylt=An6b59_9p.IlB45Od1OguFBxFb8C I rarely buy books new. When I do, I usually buy them at Amazon.com and will occasionally go to the local bookstore. I am a member of a Christian book club but won't buy much if anything from there once I have fulfilled my membership. Do you buy books new? Where do you usually buy them from?

[i][b] This is my 100th post. Yea me![/b][/i] The only way I would pay full price for a book is if it was something I needed right then and it wasn't available quickly any other way (can't see that happening often), or if it was for a gift. I frequent the library, but if there's a book I know I'll be referring to more than once, I'll buy it but at a greatly reduced rate through amazon or eBay or something. I got a book about gardening at the library yesterday that I really like and am headed to amazon right now to see if I can find a copy! [i][/i]
