Chapters. Great selection, reasonable prices, and the store smells like coffee from the moment you step in. Chapters is preferable, but otherwise, I go online with Amazon.com. Even more reasonable with their prices (:

Sometimes I get them at Borders or Waterstones, but usually I order them from a catalouge my gran gets because it's waaaaaay cheaper, like a whole big series for a tenner and stuff like that.

Umm...
Chapters is a separate chain from Indigo; however, both Chapter and Coles are owned by Indigo.


But, um, yes. I go to thrift stores or Chapters/Indigo/Coles.

I use the local libraries to borrow books or visit the local charity (goodwill) shops in our area - we have a really good Oxfam Bookshop on our high street - it even has a teens & childrens' section (unusual for a Charity book shop).

There are some great bargains to be had there (for less than the price you'd pay in the big supermarkets).

I get my books from Books-a-million, and Wal-mart. I like Books-a-million better though.

I get them from a variety of places, but I prefer Barnes & Noble or Books-a-million.
I used to check out books from the library at school all the time before I was homeschooled, though.

School textbooks? Amazon, Ebay, half.com, craigslist, or other sites like that. I never pay full price or go to the university bookstore for textbooks unless I absolutely have to. For other books (I've recently taken up collecting classics), I normally get them at my local library, where they're sold super cheap. :o
