You can get cheap books from Amazon, Ebay, yard sales, and thrift shops. They are all great places to get cheap books from. Personally I like Ebay, and Amazon, because they have more to offer like if you want a new book or a used one. You could also try a dollar store.
Do you really want a lot of books on your bookshelf? I did until there were 1000 and when I moved I had to get rid of them. Have you thought of an e-reader instead? I have a Sony e-reader which holds 1000 books. I get the books from a peer-to-peer website which is free. Or you can buy and download books from Amazon cheap. Our public library allows us to download any book they have at no cost. Ask at your own library. Good luck.
Friends of the Library often have bookstores/sales. Books are donated to the local library. Sometimes the librarian will add the book to the library collection, but most often books are sold and proceeds go to support your local library. I volunteer at my Friends of the Library Bookstore, and you should see how many great titles I come across and I don't think I have ever paid more than $3-5 for a book. Most are only $1 each. Get a cheap read, while you do a good deed. Love it.
ps: When done with the book, donate it right back.
