Came upon another booksite a bit ago: The Scholar's Bookshelf (http://www.scholarsbookshelf.com) and innocently request their next catalogues of Literature, History, & Military History. Came in the mail yesterday those 3: Literature (850 titles), History (1,700), Military History (1,400)!!! Even assuming 10-15% title duplication, that's one heck of a lot of books. They're in Cranbury, NJ and shipping is based on the dollar amount of your order. They also have other catalogues avaialable. Most prices are discounted and sales items are cheap. Might be interesting for anyone needing another source. Feel free to spread the word if you want. And, no, I have no ownership interest there.
A good source that I have found is the Wake County Libraries book sale. Tomorrow books will be on sale for $2 a bag or $5 a box. Sorry for the late notice as tomorrow is the last day.
Wonderland Books on 321 in Hickory is currently having a huge sale. I understand it's to make room for new stock and I can see that they need the room. The place is crammed! This is a used book store and they have mostly reading copies. See http://www.biblio.com/bookstores/Wonderland_Books.html
According to their newsletter Wonderland is currently for sale if anyone's interested in the used book business. I'm still too far from retirement to consider it.
I use the Salvation Army, Kidney Foundation, and Goodwill stores for great book bargains. You may be surprised by what you find and the very cheap price you pay for used books, many are which of good to excellent quality. These are great resources.
There's also the Wall St. Book Exchange in Waynesville and the Book Ex in Durham.
Edward McKay books has interesting collections of used books in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh and Fayetteville. The W-S store is the one nearest me, and I visit frequently for US history and Classical CDs. The Greensboro store is larger, but I've only been there once. I've also visited the Raleigh store which is also larger than the W-S store. Haven't seen the Fayetteville store.
#7 - you are so right Susie!! Matt always makes reading suggestions for me!!
The annual Wake County library sale is usually a good bet. Feb. 17-20, 2011 at NC state fairgrounds.
Edward McKay books just remodeled the Winston-Salem store. I love browsing through used book stores! Also, love browsing old books through used book sites on the net.
Cumberland County libraries is having their Friends of the Library sale soon. Here's the link to the website: http://ccplbulletins.blogspot.com/2011/05/book-sales-coming-soon.html.
