I used to read constantly, so I would always at least look through the books on the racks at all the dollar stores. Some of them have higher prices and not everything is $1.00, but I generally picked up a few from places like Dollar Tree. Every once in a while they have some decent books. For a buck, I'm willing to give one a try. They often have hard cover ones as well, which is nice, especially if you want to hang onto it. I really like the larger print as well. These can also make a nice gift, especially if you know someone who loves to read and you just want to get them a little something.
