Of course, most of them can be found on-line but there are people who own the books and are willing to sell them much cheaper. These people usually have huge personal libraries and have already read the books themselves. There are on-line auctions for old and used books so anyone can purchase them cheaply.
Tips: if you decide to buy an old book mind cleaning it.
How to clean a book?
Get wet wipes and rub the covers of the book very carefully without pushing too hard. Right after that, dry the book with a towel.
A soft painting brush can help for dust removing. Make sure to go with the grains of the pages. That will stop any damage that might occur.
Mold and mildew can be cleaned with dry cloth or a cloth dampen in alcohol. Then you just need to let the pages air dry.
Cleaning leather books may be a bit more intensive. Oil based cleaner might be used in order to condition the leather.
Book mites can also be a problem. Get all the books from the infected area, put them on a flat pan and “bake” them on 135 degrees for three hours. This should do the job just fine.
Hopefully, the tips were useful and you will gift a man with a nice book for the next holiday.
