I got a comment on my post about going to the library asking about the kinds of books that I get. I have been keeping a list of the books I am reading this year that can give you an idea. Of the books on that list, I got twelve of them from the local library — the young adult books, the science fiction, and several others.
I buy my books second (or third or fourth) hand at Goodwill or other places like that. Our library has a room where they sell books, too. But I still spend too much on books! Last time we went to Goodwill, we spent over $ 30 on books!
