This month, I got too many books…
Blogging For Books:
- The New Sugar & Spice by Samantha Seneviratne.
- Instructions For The End Of The World by Jamie Kain.
- Heartache And Other Natural Shocks by Glenda Leznoff.
Half Price Books:
- Sweethearts by Sara Zarr.
- The Duff by Kody Keplinger.
- The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.
- We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson.
- The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti.
I’ve been looking for a cheap copy of We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson, for what seem like FOREVER! It’s not the edition I wanted, but it will do! I was also suppose to read The Duff last month for a book club, but I didn’t buy it in time…I guess I will be reading it later, hopefully before the end of 2015.
Better World Books:
- Beautiful by Amy Reed.
- Crazy by Amy Reed.
- Over You by Amy Reed.
- Sugar by Deirdre Riordan Hall.
- Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler.
- Kissing Doorknobs by Terry Spencer Hesser.
Not realizing that their “Sale” books were all old library books, I got 5. I’m not trying to be snobby or whatever because I do buy used books all the time, but theses library ones are so gross! The pages are all oily and…I just don’t like to think about it. I taped up the covers, thinking that it would make me feel better about them but no…not at all.
The only book I bought that wasn’t a library book was Sugar by Deirdre Hall. The corners are a little bent, but that’s fine. The only thing about that book that sucks is the fact that I looked for it on Amazon the day before I bought it from Better World Books, and it was 10.99 and I was thinking no I’ll just get the used one from BWB because it was like $6. Well with all the great luck I have, the day after I bought it from BWB, I was on Amazon, and the price dropped from $10.99 to $5.99…WTF!!!!! Oh well!

What is this ‘Half Price Books’ of which you speak? Oh dear. I’m in trouble… >.> Do all of these places off marked-down books? I feel as though I’ve been missing out on some giant epiphany having only ever gone to the local bookstore and paying full price.
I know right! I was in trouble the moment I heard about Half Price Books.. It’s a used bookstore in the US. I don’t know if they have them in every state, but I know that there is at least two in Arizona. I’m addicted! They sale new and used books, mostly used. Their new books are 20% off of the normal price, and sometimes they send you coupons to get up to 50% off one item. I’m in love with that bookstore! Better World Books and Thrift books are Online Used bookstores. You just have to be careful with them because you can get some real nasty looking books from them.
Yup. You killed me Giovanna! I found a Half Price Books nearby and totally just scavenged through the young adult and teen section (had to limit myself :p). Thankfully, I only bought 5, but goodness knows how many more I’ll buy when I go next time. (I’m seriously debating making it a monthly thing. >.> I’m going to have a problem on my hands. :p)
Thank you for the insight! I’m really happy to find places that offer cheaper books, especially with all of the reading I hope to do here. Also thanks for the tip on the nasty-looking books. I’m /super/ picky when it comes to how new my books look (it’s a bad habit). So, I’m glad to know what to avoid. ^.^
Hahahahaha! I’m glad I could help ! I’ve been wanting to go to half price books but o now I shouldn’t I think there has only been one time that I have left with nothing but the. I went straight to the other one and bought something hahaha. It’s so addictive!
