I love the Dollar Tree. It's just freaking awesome. Okay, so some of the stuff is super cheaply made, but that's okay, because it's all a dollar. So, I went the other day with my mom. She was looking for something particular, but I got lost in the book aisle and stayed there the entire time we were in the store. Now, they used to have crap books. Everything that no one's ever heard of and doesn't even look appealing, but they are moving on up! They had a lot of fantastical looking novels, but I found five that I was super interested in.
Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey. If you follow my blog at all, you know I'm become a huge fan of James Frey in these past few months, so you can only imagine how excited I was to find one of his books for only a dollar. ONE DOLLAR!
Turn Around Bright Eyes: The Rituals of Love & Karaoke by Rob Sheffield. I can't say I'm totally sure what this book is about, but I can't stop singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart," so it has to be a fun book to read, right? (Speaking of, I freaking love the Glee version of the song.)
Mother, Mother by Koren Zailckas. I have Zailckas's book Smashed, so I would love to read her debut novel, too.
The Fields: A Novel by Keven Maker. This novel seems like it will give me major feels, while also making me laugh out loud. This one's another debut novel, and I love reading new authors.
I rarely pay full price for books, unless it's Harry Potter (or related). I tend to buy them from discount stores, like Ollie's; thrift stores like the Goodwill or other holes in the wall; or yard sales. I tend to pay 10 cents to $5 for books, so to find them for a dollar is pretty awesome.
Where do you find cheap books? What are some of the best books you've gotten for really cheap?
