The majority people who are reading this article enjoy reading. Most people love to read and many have a strong passion to read. Abraham Lincoln loved to read and did everything he could to find whatever books he could read. Lincoln, as most people, put the Bible at the top of his reading list. The bibliophile is always on a quest to find the latest greatest book, or that hidden gem that is not readily available. Here are some ways to find the greatest books ever written; some may be closer than you think.
At the top of the list has to be the Bible. How many people do you know that actually read their Bible consistently? It is filled with the history of the world, and actually has information about our past, present and future. You can read it over and over again and each time, learn something new and inspiring.
Used book stores. There are multiple reasons to peruse through used book stores. Many times you will find books that are out of date, and cannot be found anywhere else. It may not be the latest or greatest, but it could become a valued book that you will treasure for a long time.
Sometimes libraries or other organizations will hold book sales. You may find yourself walking out carrying many books and paying pennies on the dollar. At these type of sales there is always an excitement in the air. There are usually many books to choose from and they are ridiculously inexpensive.
Traditional bookstores are still around, although unfortunately the number is dwindling. You will pay top dollar, unless you are buying something on sale, but you will find the latest books available. There are many to choose from, and bookstores are still an exciting place to visit. Some even have seats where you can sit down and read.
You never know what you will find at a garage sale or a flea market. People don’t normally shop these venues specifically for books, but you may find something special. That goes for music also. The book lover is always on the lookout, and a garage sale or flea market may hold that next great read.
And the last, but certainly not the least good place to find great books, is the internet. When we think about buying books on the internet, the first place we think of is Amazon. That is certainly the best place to buy new, as well as used books on the internet, but there are other places as well. There are many online bookstores and each one has its own appeal.
