What many people don't know about Half Price Books is that you can actually buy new stuff there. Much of the stock -- including hardcovers, paperbacks, music, and films -- has never been used. Check this recent find: Total Football II. The jacket on this 1,800-plus page book suggests a charge of $59.98. We paid less than a quarter of that: $12.98. Thanks to this eight-pound wonder, we now spend half our time settling phoned-in bar bets.
