Best Way to
Stretch Your Book Dollar

Half Price Books

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.
