Bookstores, Book News & What to Read

It's not unusual for a library customer to say something like, "It doesn't look like this book has been used very much and I'd really like to have it. May I buy it?" Library books are offered for sale when they are withdrawn from the collection, but we can't say in advance when, if ever, that will be. If you're unable to locate a book at a store in town one of these sites may be useful. Curious about the value of one of your books? Try the second-hand/out-of print services to see what others are asking for it.
