Why I love used bookstores

July 7, 2008

As part of our trip to Matt Thomas’ wedding in Louisville, Megan and I made a step in Beckley, WV where we came across a small used bookstore.

I checked the actual cost on Amazon.com today and found that each one is being sold for $85. There’s nothing like making a rare find at a used bookstore! As one of my professors here says, “the good thing about used books is that they work just as well as new books…”
