Half-Price Books, garage sales, the wife and I used to do big buys on half.com, she would be ordering something and we'd throw in a bunch of other stuff to pad out the order, but she's switched over to a Kindle and has been downsizing her physical book collection. I just can't bring myself to part with my dead trees.

Books I've never read before, I start at the top of the list and go down until I get the book:

1. Check Amazon Prime Kindle Lending Library.
2. Check Local Library Website for physical and ebook versions.
3. Order Kindle version or used version from Amazon/Half if less than $5 w/ shipping
4. Order via Interlibrary Loan
5. Order as a monthly selection from Audible.com
6. Order via Amazon at their normal new price for Kindle or physical.

Since I read on my kindle (buying that thing is the only thing that got me to read more) I buy obviously.

Depends. If it's a really popular title I want to read, I most likely won't want to wait the month or two to pick it up in the library. Otherwise, I'm pretty content with checking something out for free. I'm thinking ebay and Amazon are likely the cheapest (perhaps B&N.com). EDIT: Just checked out Half.com and seems to be very good in terms of prices.
