For those that live in the Philadelphia area, Microcenter has a whole
room of 99 cent books. They are useless to most people but for
collectors of old crusty hardware & software, there is a potential
goldmine here of hard to find stuff.
They also have an aisle in their main book room that is full of
closeout books. I was finding books on PHP, PostgreSQL, Oracle marked
down to about $4 to $6. There may be new editions out of the book
fetching a higher price, and they just need to get rid of the older
printings. Yes, they'll have a little less up-to-date information on
them so you'll miss out on some new stuff but 800 pages of useful info
for $5 is a good deal.
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the
nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and
refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by
convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the
better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
-Mark Twain, "The Mysterious Stranger"
