About a month ago I bought Mason and Dixon by Pynchon and Freedom by Franzen for three dollars. Yesterday I bought The Greek Myths by Robert Graves and The Corrections by Franzen for five dollars. Everytime I go there seems to be something interesting in these thrift shops. All four of the books were hardback and each cost at least twenty dollars. Of course, I doubt you'll find a new release but if you need something to read and are keen on saving, I'd suggest a thrift shop. I'm curious if you have done this, what books have you found? I know that some have found rare classics worth hundreds at thrift shops.
