Books seem to come to me.   A lot of that is because I volunteer at a huge rummage sale. I used to volunteer at a couple book sales, but since I work full time now it's harder.  I have too many books anyway so probably good I don't get in early!

My g'ma belongs to a book club. When she finishes reading a book, she gives it to me to post. So, I have several Love Inspired and other similar books posted I got from her. I also go to charity sales and auctions and buy boxes of books at a time. Also, we have a great used bookstore.

Oh, and our library has a huge bi-annual book sale where lots of people donate books, and the sale lasts 4 days at a time. They are raising money to build a bigger library.

I have bought alot of books at Goodwill, ( paperback and hardback ) - and I have also bought books at a local DAV store.

Plus - some friends give me some of their books when they are done reading them.  :)

I don't read a lot of romance but other Christian fiction I like.  I will check out the Goodwill but I go a lot to Lifeway when they run sales, Books-a-Million has some really good books where you can buy 2 get 1 free (at least here they do).  I also shop online at Christianbooks.com and check out their bargain books.

I just bought two of the Sister Chick books for 99 cents each.  Got a Nancy Moser book for a quarter and another for fifty cents.  Their shipping isn't really outrageous either.

I don't do a lot of yard sales, need to but don't get up early enough to hit them on Saturdays.
