    I have been searching for Quilts Through the Seasons by Elenore Burns on line and can not find it for less than $20.00 with shipping. I can't afford that. Even Joann's with the %50 off coupon would be $18.00. I was thinking that I may have a book that someone else how has Quilts Through the Seasons and does not use it might want and they might like to swap. Is there a place on here that would fit this?

    Yes, Ebay with shipping the cheapest is over $20.00 :(

    Maybe I will have to put it on my Christmas list. I was hoping to get it before then, but I can wait if it is as good as everyone says :lol:

    Do a posting on the Members Buy'Swap page....I was fortunate to connect with another member wanting to trade books...I got a Sharon Pederson reversible quilts book from her while she got a childrens Bono book from me....it did cost a little more being cdn/usa shipping but I think it's the spot on this board to search for someone who might have a book to trade with you.

    Try Amazon.com. Sometimes you can get used books at a good price, sometimes they want more than new. Just a suggestion.

    I am in www.paperbackswap.com
    perhaps they have it? you join, post so many paper back books you want to swap and then find what you want, and get it. others ask for your books and you only pay the postage. not bad for swapping books. but not sure if you'd want to join just to get one book.
    good luck though

    I did go to Amazon.com and found the book. The cheapest was New $17.39+$3.99 shipping. I was hoping I could find it for you used, because I buy most of my books from them used and have never had a problem, but believe it or not the cheapest used book was $22.95. Sorry Pink did try for you.

    Have you tried Alibris.com? You can get new OR used books and very reasonable ... lots of different prices depending on how the seller values their book. I've purchased a number of great books from them -- all used library books and hardbound, many cost me roughly $4-$8.

    HTH,

    I like to check with my local public library to see if they have a book first before I spend the money to buy it. I'm fortunate to be able to have cards to check out books from both the county library system and the city library system. You could also request that your local public library purchase a book for their patrons (you...!!!) to use, or they could request it from another library system that does have it. Hope this was helpful. :-)
