Great Used Books Worth Looking At Again

Aug 15, 2008
There are many wonderful used books on the market today that are offered at either used book stores, larger retail book chains, and at hundreds of web site selling used books. Some of these used books can either be first time editions, classics, or possibly last prints.

Many of the used books sitting on the shelves now would make very interesting reading that many avid readers may find hard to put down if they were to pick it up. Some of these used books include Exploring The Unknown by Stuart D. Scott, which is takes a wonderful look at the mysteries of this world. In 1993, Workman Publishing Company released a fabulous book that answered some of the toughest questions of life by Kathy Wollard, which was entitled How Come. This book is illustrated terrificly and would be worth looking for at your local used book store.

As you are browsing through the hundreds of used books at your local used book store, then you may discover all types of titles from the humorous to the serious to the weird. Of course, there is no way that even the avid reader could ever read every single book they every laid their eyes on, but there are many used books at your local book store just waiting for some one to take some interest in them. Many of these books are no longer in print and are worth picking up and taking the time to read each page. One of these books is the Readers' Digest Facts And Fallacies - Stories Of The Strange And Unusual, which was published in 1988, and is a collection of odd stories that have been totally researched, then presented in a well formed presentation. It may be hard for you to locate a copy due to it being out of print, but it would be worth adding to your personal library.

Several of the used books offered at your local book store have won awards or their authors have. Some such used books that are definitely worth checking into include The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig, Color Of The Sea by John Hamamura, and The Floor Of The Sky by Pamela Carter Joern, which have all won the Alex Award. These used books and many others might be a little bit dog eared and the pages could be a little yellow, but they are so well written and the stories hidden between the covers are worth reading.

It seems as if the older books have been written better than books that are currently being written in this modern day. Authors have trouble at time expressing their ideas clearly and will add extra adjectives in an attempt of creating a smooth transition, but instead it creates a book of adjectives. One of the greatest authors, in my personal opinion, that could most definitely get his point across to his readers so that they were able to actually feel like that could close their eyes and see what he was writing was Louis Lamour. The majority of his books and short stories are westerns, but he did write some poetry that will make your heart leap with his written words.
