I tend to go to Goodwill and purchase used books. The are usually less than $2. If I go to a bookstore, then I will spend around $5-7. I can't justify spending more than that...to many bills and a kid on his way to college!

What I'll spend depends on the author, usually, but I often shop from online venues that I'll know sell newly released books for under $15. I often find great deals in my favorite genres. :D

I buy all my books used so I spend anywhere from $0.25 to $4 on a book.

I spend no more than $4.00, either from yard sales, thrift stores or used on-line.

Less than 5 bucks, and no more! There is a store that I know of that sells used books cheap.

I try to spend no more than twenty dollars at one time on books. I had to impose that limit when I found myself snatching up bargain books at a store just because they were on sale. Twenty dollars makes me think about the purchase and only select the ones I really want to read.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

For me it depends on the author and the condition of the book. My budget ranges from $5 to at least $20.

I try to get my books for free. Sometimes, I will ask my library to get it for me.
