[bksvol-discuss] Re: Obtaining Books to Scan

Try ThriftBooks.com or PaperbackSwap.com. Also, you might want to look at the wholesale lots for sale on eBay. That can be more expensive in the sense of paying out a lump sum all at once, but it can be the source for about the cheapest price per book. The larger the lot the cheaper the individual books. Another source might be your local thrift store. They vary in price around the country, but if you are lucky enough to live in a cheap area you can get used books for pennies.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Obtaining Books to Scan


I just want to know how people here get new books to scan. That is, what would be the most cost-effective way of finding and purchasing books that I might be interested enough to read and scan for the collection? Amazon is a great company and their prices are pretty good. However, I've seen used books on there asking for $4 for shipping, which is ridiculous when you can get books locally without paying that. Also, I'd feel mor comfortable about buying the books rather than borrowing from libraries because scanning necessarily destroys the spines. But if I could get books for free without having to worry about wrecking them, I'd certainly jump at such opportunities as well. Any tips you're willing to share would be appreciated.
