    i have collected my books from tons of places. Teachers who were leaving their own classroom gave me a ton, but i also got a lot from garage sales (most recently i got 60 books for about 10 bucks, and most were newberry's). i also frequent library book sales. some of the local libraries near me hold one or two book sales per year and have thousands of books for sale. i usually find this information at www.booksalefinder.com ...just click on your state on the map. if there aren't a lot listed near you, just google library locations near you and call them. i have literally walked out of library book sales with a garbage bag full of books for 2 bucks on their bag sale day.

    p.s. if you go during a bag sale day, you don't really have the time to peruse and take your time. i usually don't go through them and sort them until i get home. sometimes one or two books will be marked up or something and then they go in the trash. but it is still worth every second of the bag sales.
