One of my first stop’s in America was “Half Price Bookstore.”  It is basically the same sort of store as Book Off in Japan.  I love these used bookstores.    I always look for books that are in pristine condition, like they have never actually been read.  No boogers on the pages for us.


I did not have a whole lot of time because my dad and son were waiting.  I picked out books that were award winners and books I had heard good things about.


I saved a bundle of money.  I know the books could be found cheaper in garage sales, but of course I don’t have time for that.
