YesterdayI went to this used book store that a co-worker told me about. I had only been there once before, it's on the other side of town and I don't really venture out that way very often. I brought in about 8-10 books I wanted to get rid of and got $19 store credit. I picked up 2 books, "Snow Falling on Cedars" by David Guterson and "Nights in Rodanthe" by Nicholas Sparks which is now a movie! The books were $17 total so I still have $2 credit left.
I really like this idea because you can go in there and come out without having spent any money. It's also a great way to get rid of books that are just clutter around your house, without creating waste.
So do you guys shop at used book stores at all or do you prefer to buy brand new?
