The delight of used books

I love books! I love reading them, I love buying them, I love talking about them. I love the idea of them. I love the SMELL of them.

But I don’t want to spend an outrageous amount of money on them.

In addition to checking out library books (both physical books and ebooks), and buying select new books from authors that I love and want to support, there is a third category of books that I regularly indulge in: used books.

Used books are great. You can find out of print titles, versions of a beloved book that you read as a child, or older editions of books with better looking covers. Best of all, they are CHEAP. And buying used books keeps them out of a landfill!

One great online source for used books is Thriftbooks. They have a huge variety of books, sorted by year and edition, in a wide range of genres. They ship from locations all over the country, and if you spend $10 in one purchase you get free shipping ($10 can sometimes buy you THREE used books! Amazing.

This is not an ad, I just love Thriftbooks. A lot,


I’ll show you some of the great books I’ve bought from Thriftbooks tomorrow, so stay tuned!
