Welcome Robert!  Browse your local library book sales, Salvation Army stores and Goodwills for inexpensive books to post.  That's how I got most of my books that I posted here.  Good luck!

Welcome Robert  Or you had friends or ralations that are readers, but they didn't want to join PBS and they have books they want to get rid of, volunteer to take the book and you could post those.  I have a friend I get quite a few books from.

Welcome, Robert!  Try looking on freecycle.org for your area and see if anyone has some free books.  I've gotten some that way. Getting some from family or friends is a good way - lots of people have books sitting around they'd like to be rid of but don't do anything about it.  Especially from people who are planning to move!  Hope you enjoy it here like I do!

Hi Robert,

If you check out my bookshelf and see a couple books that you like , i'll be glad to send them to you. Goodwill is a great place to pick up some cheap used books. As well as flea markets. Remember to send me your address info and i'll send you a couple books to help out!!


Good luck and sorry to hear about your divorce.

I have taken  some books off of my bookshelf  that i'll send you.  I'll get them packed and off to the PO this week. They are Stuart Woods and James Patterson....I just got rid of a huge box of books that were sitting around here, for months, just taking up space... I had them listed but they didn't move so I got a ton of new books to list. These books seem to be doing the job. I'll send you a couple of my bookmarks too!

Good luck in getting some more books together..
