Used Books

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

For folks who like to trawl used bookstores, Goodwill and Salvation Army and other thrift stores, yard sales, library sales, and online sources such as Ebay and Amazon Sellers for reading delights from days of yore!

Is it out of print or obscure? Let's discuss ways of finding it.

Book bargainhunters--here's a place to discuss that treasure you came upon!
