So today I had a random thought pop into my head regarding old books from my childhood I would like to read again. Specifically "The Cold People" by Christopher Pike, and an "Aliens Ate My Homework" box set from Bruce Coville.

Looked around the house and I can't find them :(. No PDF copies online. My mom probably gave them away to my cousins, although I have other books from around the same time still :.

Looked it up online and found this (it's selling on eBay for $1, but still)



It just pisses me off that there are stacks of comics from circa 1977 sitting in my basement but apparently we didn't have room to save some of my favourite books.

(I checked, and I don't think the comics are really worth anything either.)

An Amazon reseller would be your best option.  Basically just $5-10 in shipping.

I never did get much into novels.  Read a few Goosebumps books which mostly sucked (though I recall liking Night of the Living Dummy).

The only books that stand out are The Pizza Pie Slugger, Garfield's Pet Force series and quite likely the only novel I ever got from the library and finished, Ernie Harwell's Diamond Gems

Amazon and eBayer for sure. Pretty much your best chance to get old books. Actually off the internet if you heck out second hand book shops you can find some rare stuff, and often the shop will let you tell them what you want and then ring you up if they get it in.

The Bible? Well then, do you like the Qu'ran?
