I’m a BIG fan of books and I’m an even bigger fan of used books on sale. A lot of my books come from scouring the Good Will, Fair’s Fair books, or Better World Books (I have a blurb about them at the end of this post). There are a couple in this pile that I’d almost bought for full price over the last few months, but I managed to snag all of these for under eighteen dollars! Here’s what I got:
Hundreds and Thousands: the journals of an artist – Emily Carr
The Secret Life of Bees – Sue Monk Kidd
Amsterdam – Ian McEwan
Moloka’i – Adam Brennert
Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston
Jazz – Toni Morrison
Skin Divers – Anne Michaels
Himself – Jess Kidd
Of Bees and Mist – Erick Setiawan
One my favourite book retailers is betterworldbooks.com, a not-for-profit started by a few friends from college. The concept is that for every book you buy, one book is donated to someone in need through hundreds of different charities and organizations (talk about validating my book obsession with charity). They support of ton of local libraries around the world and they even tell you which library your purchase will be supporting. Not to mention they’ve have worldwide free shipping and almost every book on the planet. Definitely check them out!
