Used Book Store
Most of the books I trade in for credit I've gotten free, or really cheap...my Mom gives me alot of books she gets from her friends or buys at the thrift store or Goodwill, I also shop at the thrift stores/Goodwill for books which cost about .50/.75, and sometimes I get bags/boxes of books free from Freecycle. I keep saying I'm going to start stopping at yard sales again, because you can usually get books for .25 at those.
Then the UBS gives me credit of something like 25% of the books' original price.
Today I got a credit of $60-some-odd dollars worth for books I didn't pay much, if anything, for to start with. So I pretty much got all of the above books for free.
They aren't new or in the best condition, but that don't matter a bit to me, so long as I can read the stories.
Speaking of the Goodwill....I was in one earlier today, looking for treasures or whatever, when all of a sudden alot of people started like, hollering. Like they were in pain or something.
I thought, oh crap, what's going on, are they being robbed?!
So they're still carrying on like I don't know what, and I'm looking for the back way out, when I hear someone groan, "Ugh, somebody really passed some gas, bad!!"
