Subject: Re: Travel Books
Hello Ira and fellow Travelziners,

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who collects out-of-date guides. I pick them up at garage sales, library book sales, and used book stores. I don't hesitate to tear out the pertinent pages to take along on our trips when I've purchased them at such a low cost.

Even though they may be out of date regarding prices, etc. the background information, maps, and major sights are still helpful. Plus, if we're traveling free and easy (without hotel reservations) they are useful as a handy database for checking out possible places to stay.
