Default Where to Buy Books?

I usually buy books from local retailers IE Walmart, Target etc.

Online: I will buy from eBay and Amazon.

However there is a new and awesome website called www.thriftbooks.com

I HIGHLY recommend them! VERY cheap prices and free shipping on EVERY order!

Check them out!

The local library has books for sale - CHEAP!

If there's a particular book I want I do go to Amazon first.

One of my all time favorites - My box and string. My copy fell apart (it's OLD) but I found a good copy on Amazon. Happy!

i do scholastic books. I have a teachers account and i also offer the book club to my families.

when we all buy things, I get credits to put toward getting new books. I just got 17 books for $9.95. I bought most of them with my points that I had saved up. It is really worth looking into...

I love the books we get from there.....

I just bought 30 books for $3.00 at Goodwill (they were 10 for $1) There were some Scholastic books and some *Science* books they were in good shape! I found a lot of insect ones which will work very well for our activites this summer.
I spent a fortune on Amazon on books and some of my best "finds" have been at Goodwill or yard sales.

Scholastic Sign your group up for book orders. you earn points and in the fall there are usually free books for the class. Parents can even choose the books online now and pay with a credit card. That makes your job easier.

Thumbs up Great tip on Thriftbooks!

I am so pleased to find this fantastic site for books! It will be great to add to my children's collection, but for my own as well! Thank you for sharing.

I found some nice board books at Once Upon A Child... I bought 'Goodnight Moon' for $1.50. With the little ones I have here I can't keep 'paper' books within reach...they rip out the pages. I also signed up to do the Scholastic thing as others mentioned & NOT ONE of my parents were ever interested. Goodwill is a good place to look also.
