Ug. wtf is up with vox, it made my IE crash. Anyway.. I went to a yard sale run by the local Gilda's club and I was so good: 2 hours in which my sister tortured me by looking at e.v.e.r.y. single thing at the sale and I managed to resist and only buy one book – "The Book of Sandwiches" by Louise Steele (this link is to google book preview of the book) for $1. Its all about sandwiches and finger foods and has lovely pictures and recipes and makes me very hungry.
This made me think about looking up book sales @ booksalefinder.com which Jen (I think?) introduced to me many moons ago. If you are near Greenwich, CT, there is a book sale categorized as "EXCEPTIONAL" by booksalefinder. My IMs to Josh regarding this sale:
me: eeeee http://www.booksalefinder.com/NYU.html#X7945
pictures from last year: http://www.greenwichlibrary.org/images/Byram/ByramBookSaleGallery2/booksalegal2.htm
go for it, it's close
me: no, i should resist
Josh: what makes you say that, the box of 100+ books in our bedroom?
I got that ebay win beside my bed and I'm resisting opening it before I bring my TBR down..
Other good websites for used books (which I troll when I want to find something out of print):
www.bookfinder.com (composite used book website search engine)
www.bookcloseouts.com (ok, not out of print usually. But I have found a couple of recently OOP there)
www.ebay.com (of course)
And not a used book place but I forgot to add a link to www.fantasticfiction.co.uk - good place to look up authors and what other books they have written, and it puts things in order of print and series, so the place I look up what book comes before what in really long series.
