Everyone underestimates a bargain bin. It's often assumed because books are discounted to 'bargain' price they're bad. But do not overlook the bargain section! A lot of books end up in a bookstore bargain bin or bargain shelf simply because they're older and the store is trying to garner fresh interest in backlist titles (or you know.... just trying to clear out some old stock for new titles). There are many amazing and beautifully written books that have ended up in the bargain bin solely because they're 10 to 20 years old now. So, next time you're at your local bookstore, stop and give it a look. You never know what gem you may find and for only $5 to boot!
