Before I bought books that I like to keep, (not all are useful), I get them from the library first. Many of them do interlibrary loans too with other locations within the country. It may take sometime to get your hands to it, but it’s doable.
Also, here in TX, we have Half Price Books. That’s where I find my books after I read them at the libraries.
Also, lots of forums like these and check forum boards in your local REI clubs too. They sometimes have a library of books you can get your hands on. Forums give you good insights but dont do a deal hoping to get “appropriate” advice based on the boards.
Ebay may be another good source.
Depending on your strategies, or if you want specific books, here are some lists:
Flipping Properties (Bill Bronchick)
Buy It, Fix It, Sell It Profit (Kevin Myers)
Find It Buy It Fix It (Robert Irwin)

I believe you can download “How to Create Multiple Streams of Income: Buying Homes in Nice Areas with Nothing Down (Peter Conti & David Finkel)” on their website: resultsnow dot com.
I’m not saying read all these books, you probably go broke on books too. But in general, know what they are.
