great source for just about any book

This is not really a thread starter, but wanted to share a great place to find just about any book very inexpensively...AbeBooks.com It's hard to beat free online, but sometimes you just want a book.

I will check that out. My daughter started college this month (and I restarted college this month.. hey, we're both freshmen!) so that might come in handy.

When I was in the hospital a couple of years ago my wife got me an ebook reader and that has really changed my reading habits, though not so much for new books, because the ebooks are still pretty expensive, I think, for that, but there are so many free ebooks in the public domain, its amazing. There is a huge amount of Baha'i scripture on ebook format.

My non Baha'i reading right now is Sir Richard Burton's account of searching for the source of the Nile.

Good tip, Becky! I buy mostly from Amazon, but I checked this site out and searched 'Baha'i'. Seven books have now been added to my library for under $25...good deal!

Happy Reading!!!

Dear brother,
Keep checking it out. I think you can actually look for books from the UK in refined searches. Besides Baha'i books, I sometimes look for knitting books, and quite often they are from the UK!

Happy searching!!
