I have purchased for little to nothing many like new books at yard sales and thrift stores. A girl who works at a local thrift store was so happy to know I wanted books, she would give me a large paper bag full for $1 or I could pick through for 10 cents apiece. Some are not fit for my reading corner, but if I get 5 nice books for a dollar, you can't beat that! These places are bombarded with books and often scrap them to paper recycling buyers for pay by the pound. Check this out. You may be happily surprised.
