On accumulating books

Being a bibliophile myself, I was very interested to read about how The Little Professor usually acquires her books.

In terms of books that I desire to buy, I have to meet a lot of my Spanish language lit needs by shopping online, usually at Abebooks and Amazon's third party sellers — unless, that is, the book I want is going to be taught (or was recently taught) in one of my department's courses. In that case, all I have to do is walk to main bookstore at my institution of higher learning and browse.
