To me there is no contest---either Amazon or Ebay---good bargains on both sites.

I buy quite a few used books from e-bay for my Mrs . They're always in good condition and most of the time they're postage free

Public libraries often have an over abundance of donated books. The search through all those books is worth while,
if you have the time and patience. The cost is minimal, less than $1.00 a book.

I order many off Ebay, never pay over $3 for any for the last few years I have been ordering only German language books as it helps my learning here and makes me work harder to learn it.

Two ideas posted previously are excellent.. I’ve also purchased used booked thru online book stores the cheapest have been through Goodwill stores online an you can search thru their availability. Now I drive so much I listen to free online audio books thru my local library, which also provide free ebooks and free hard copy postage paid to and back.

Amazon...paid just £1 for a book in almost new condition with free p&p.
If you want a specific book that is. Otherwise charity shops and markets.
