Used Bookstores Are The Best

Hey, ladies!

Yesterday I had a little adventure to a big used bookstore around an hour and a half from my house. It was a 2nd and Charles, and used to be a Books-a-Million, to give you a size reference. They had movies, records, and holy books! Books, books everywhere! Romance, mystery, erotica, YA, kids, you name it. So many gorgeous hardbacks! I was in bibliophile heaven. :D

Their adult section was a little lacking (or maybe it's just that I read mostly indie/small authors), but their YA selection was fabulous. I found 7 books, 5 of them hardbacks, for $6 or less each. All but one are in like new condition! They take trade-ins, so I brought some of the books from my most recent shelf clean out for a bit of store credit. Most fabulous invention ever! I'll have to come back to that place. :D

Prodigy by Marie Lu - $5.25

Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning - $6

Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse - $5

Alpha by Rachel Vincent - $2

Champion by Marie Lu - $5.25

The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning - $5.25

A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton - $5.50

I've read both Marie Lu's books and loved them, and I had a paperback copy of Dreamfever (fabulously fantastic series!), but you can always use a hardback! I'm a big Rachel Vincent fan, and have a few in that series. The other three are completely new to me, though!

  1. There used to be a place like this in the town where I lived before, unfortunately, it's closed now. So enjoy ;)

  2. Gotta love the used bookestore. If you ever come to Portland, go to Powells downtown, I could live there for weeks and weeks.

  3. Awesome finds!! I haven't been to a used bookstore in forever. I need to make a trip soon. Enjoy your books!

  4. I'm so glad I have a Half Priced Books in several spots close to me. Love to go there and browse when I'm needing a new to me book :D

  5. Ah this makes me want to go to the used bookstore here. It isn't even half as big but it does support the library and I've found interesting books there before. :) I need to go to your store! :D

  6. Oh, I love used bookstores. I have a lot of books I need to bring in to mine as well. Looks like you got some great titles!

  7. oh man how fun! I wish we had one big like that around here

  8. We have a huge bookstore here in the Portland area. It's dangerous for me to go... This post is giving me the urge... but I must resist! The books are so cheap makes you want to buy more. I already have a stack that are collecting dust from my last trip!

  9. Love going to used book stores to find little gems! It's been a while, but with money tough nowadays, I think that's all I could afford. Lol.
