Re: Where do you get your children's books?

We check out at the library every week so we know if they are worth buying. Once I know what I want I will check out goodwill but I also use ebay half for a lot of books.

I order from Betterworld as well. It's actually a local company for me so I know people who work there.

It's a great company and great deals on good used books!

I just ordered a bunch through my nephew's MDO book order. It's through Scholastic and the prices were pretty good. My mom is a librarian and my sister's a former teacher so books are common for gifts as well.

I used to go to our local thrift stores when they had once-a-month "bag" sales - fill a paper bag with anything you want for $3. I could fit A LOT of books into a paper bag, lol!!

I haven't been in a very long time, though, since I went so overboard when DD was little. We have a whole room that used to be nothing but bookshelves. I gave away about half our collection on Freecycle (another great place to look!) to make room for toys.
