Second hand book shops? Dymocks? Online? Amazon? BookDepository?

I personally get mine from either betterworldbooks.com (second-hand books) or BookDepository (cheap, large selection)

Pretty much just second hand book shops. One of my favourite things to do is search them for books I'm after. Buying online feels like cheating haha.

If I ever get to the point where I run out of books to read, then I guess I'd go online.

BTW, a great tool for buying online is booko.com.au

It does a comparison of many book sites to let you know the cheapest.

2nd handbook stores, library, and occasionally websites like ebay if I'm looking for something obscure.

Every now and then I may but new but depends on how much I want to read it or if its on special.

2nd hand bookshops. There are several near where I live and it’s one of my favourite ways to spend a Sat afternoon, browsing in them.

When I can’t find a particular book that I really want to read, I go to Readings in Carlton.

I work in a public library so I borrow most of what I want to read from there.
The bulk of what I buy these days are art books or biographies and I get them from Book depository as the no postage for heavy art books is useful.
