So, where do you find 'em beside the library? I would guess books stores.

Nope. Bookstores rip off books' covers before they dump them. That way they can do some sort of "lost or stolen" deal, which is advantageous to them.

I get all of my books at the library now, but it seems to me that I've gotten a few at thrift store dumpsters. I'm not sure.

Anybody else want to share secrets on how to get books?

Also, how much time do you spend on diving? I work fulltime and I'm usually really busy.

Me, too. So I dive only at the library these days. My younger son (Dwalin on the Fool) and I go there on the way to other things. He helps me dive and carry stuff, and I give him 10% of the net. We're both happy about the deal!
