>>7644538 But I voted right wing now, the end of socialism is a good thing right? I'm not sure how much a kindle is here but since the inflation we have been experiencing here for the last 12 years I cant afford any sorth of electronic beyond a clock with a radio in it
>>7644504 Thrift/Second-Hand 2-4€/Book 10 if it's something extraordinary. >~6€ for 1001 Nights in 6 Volumes >~15 for collected Ibsen, 5 Volumes, 1911 , very nice covers. >~5 € for Wagners poems, 1910, very nice edition You've got to actually look for Items you like. Thats the downside.
>>7644504 I buy used books and books in foreign languages, they're always cheaper. Last year I bought a box of 200 books for 10 bucks. I was the only person that bid on that sale, probably because all the books were in English or French (I even found two book in chinese).
>>7644618 You brits have it good. When I visited my m8 with Cambridge I had to stop myself with loading my suitcase with books and leaving my clothes behind. >first editions of quality books in charity shops >no longer published titles from based early Nobel winners for a couple quid >all of the leather-bound or cloth-bound editions of classics you could ever want >muh academia >muh parking signs in greek >muh punts >muh arts picturehouse >muh college bars Fuck, I don't want to be American anymore
I had alot of fiction books that I liked, but as my taste changed I am trading them for old books in used-books-stores, books that I intend to keep for life, for example philosophy/history/non fictional books in general, for the sake of having them around to consult them later, or favorite literature classics (I could download them, but since I have books I don't use to trade for them, and selling isn't worth it, then whatever.
Goodwill is a godsend. Literally nothing priced over $1. The only problem is whichever high school student they get to stock the shelves doesn't bother to put anything in any kind of order, but that almost adds to the fun. They always have classics, bestsellers, and more obscure stuff in spades. I can spend the longest time browsing, then come back a week later and it's like there's an entirely new selection. I'd imagine other thrift stores are similar.
>>7644773 Lived in Wales for about 6 months. Had to have my girlfriend bring an extra suitcase just to carry books. Even then two suitcases of my own weren't enough to carry it all and had to carry over 15 books by hand. Bought so much stuff while there
>>7644836 I lived in Paris actually, but visiting England was one of my favorite parts. I had to mail books back because of how many I bought. Hanging out at a certain famous Parisian bookstore did me in, because the owner was giving me extra money on trade in for my books because I treated them well and were good titles. It was almost a 1 to 1 swap for a used book, I would just have to chip in a euro or two.
