Who knew? Why didn’t it even dawn on me that Goodwill and other local thrift stores sell books? Decent books. Hardback for $2.50 and Softback for $1.50. After having this discovered this truth, I went on a spree and purchased a plethora of books. Now, let me explain, my spree was not just a wild free-for-all, I selected titles and authors in which I was already interested. Books on personal finance, health, leadership, and self-improvement. The stiff spine on 5 of these books indicates to me that they are new, unread books. What a find! Retail I would have spent $366.64 but in reality I paid $38.51. Below is the list the books I bought and the retail price/purchase price.
