THE JOY OF BOOKS (BOUGHT THE CHEAPEST WAY POSSIBLE, USED, ONLINE or at THRIFTS.)
Did you ever notice how prices on the same title can vary! At GOODWILL, 4$ a paperback,but go to family thrift shops --- only 29c. 49c for paperbacks. 1$ for hard cover. ON ABES the same book can go from 3$ without shipping to a lot of DOUGH on the same book so diff vendors have diff ideas! LUCKILY, Abes lists them cheapest vendors first) NOTE: Over the years we hear people rave about books; always write down title, author on any scrap of paper, put in pocket!
THIS ARTICLE deals with THE GREAT BOOKS to seek at ABE BOOKS.COM

SUPERB, READABLE, ENGROSSING and VERY INSTRUCTIONAL BOOKS, at used book shops in your village, not counting shipping costs which always add a dollar. For that reason, it's better to hit FAMILY OWNED THRIFT STORES. NOT GOODWILL (4$ ea. paperback!) and do so
across the city, industriously, seeking the great titles.
FOR BOOKS on POLITICS, the EVOLVING STATE- CLICK ON: > THE POLITICAL LIST, A BIBLIOGRAPHY of anti-Bush diatribes. These have exploded onto the best-seller list. Many have unforgettable titles like Molly Ivins' Bushwhacked or Hunter S. Thompson's Kingdom of Fear or Al Franken's Lies (And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them). These books are brimming with nasty one-liners and parlor jokes portraying George W. Bush as a dangerous dunce, a HICK not an aristocrat, a driller brat idiot unfit for the Oval Office or any office. He was a cute kid. THE FATHER was the evil villain. The Bush Cabinet was HIS cabinet: Vice President Dick Cheney, for example, is an utterly corrupt stalking horse for Halliburton, while Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has become Dr. Strangelove incarnate. Get these while you can. Used book shops online still have them. Anything by Michael Moore. If you are a PHD, anything by NOAM CHOMSKY. (Over the top Elitist languaging for a liberal writer is MY problem with him, being a vernacular gal.)
