Other sources, depending on where you live are thrift stores.  I used to make a round of Goodwill, ARC, Salvation Army and other thrift stores about once a month or so (less since joining PBS) and can get loads of books for less than a dollar each.  I also make periodic runs of the UBSs, although not as cheap as they used to be they still have a better selection when it comes to genre specific books or specific titles.  I was at one of my favorite UBSs yesterday for the first time in several months and discovered where before she'd had a few shelves of erotica, now she has a whole wall section. 

Also, keep up with you local libraries FOL sale shelves.  Of these, I don't recall seeing much erotica but I discovered that if you check with whoever stocks your FOL shelf they may have the more racy stuff in back and not on the public shelves.  Our FOL books sell for 75¢-$3.00 (less with member discount), thrift stores 50¢-$3 (with 30-50% off that on special discount days), USBs books usually go for half cover.

The Book Depository has free shipping to anywhere. I don't know how their prices compare to other places.

Kindle offers many free books and they electronically download in a flash.  Granted some of the free books quality is not that great - but free is free.  Kindle also has discounted and reduced price books for (.99 cents).  And many libraries loan electronic books.  So depending on what you're reading or how picky you are - Kindle may be another option.  Not sure if you have an ereader but that might be another avenue to look into for some value priced books.

BookCloseOuts.com is having a sale this week - 50% off their paperback fiction.  And their shipping isn't too bad if you buy multiple books. $3.99 for the first 2 items, then $0.50 for each additional book.
