I find bookstores to be way too expensive and Wal-Mart to provide a insufficient selection.
Goodwill is also too expensive for used books.

I buy almost all of my books at thrift stores and garage sales..

I find some rare books at garage sales-- most recently, The Shining by Stephen King, hardcover, first edition for 50 cents. :mimitchi:
I love collector items~!

I don't like library books... sometimes they're really disgusting on the inside! I wish people would take better care of public property.

I don't buy most of my books; they're way too expensive for a book. I mean, 5.99 for a small 100 pager? Nah.

Anyway, if I do buy books, I either buy them at the local charity shop for around 20p, or at Whsmiths where I've got tonnes of vouchers. xP

I don't usually buy books, I go to the library.
The books I own are mostly presents.

Usually Barnes & Noble in stores or through the Nook. We have an amazing book store called Chamblin Bookmine that sells just about anything under the sun, and for an amazing price, that I prefer to do my bulk book shopping at.

Books for myself I buy at my local Oxfam Book Shop (great value second hand books) or I get them out from the Library.

Most of the books I buy new are intended as presents so I use Amazon or WH Smiths I suppose.

I got to tons of different bookstores. I look wherever I can find them. But I usually just go to the library.

I just bought 2 books from the collection of the bound leather classics at Barnes and Noble (sometimes I go there when I have a coupon or when there are enticing books I'd like to collect): The Arabian Nights (I've always wanted to read this) and 5 Novels of Charles Dickens (A Tale of Two Cities is included and is one of my favorites). :)

Since the bookstore at the mall closed down, I buy my books at ebay.

BORDERS. For some reason I am extremely biased towards Borders rather than Barnes & Noble. It's just so nice there, I can't explain it. There's a nice young adult book section, a lot of music, lots of manga, and they have a nice cafe on the second floor. Plus a lot of cute stuff you can buy near the register. I have a pencil case with smiling foods on it and some hair clips from there, they're so cute. ^_^ All of my Fruits Basket volumes were purchased there. I own the entire series, btw.

Waterstones or WHSmith. Or I just borrow them from the Library.
