Is there anywhere to get the books for a decent price? I have a hard time paying MSRP, but I can't find them besides at the OOTS site, and they're damn expensive there.
You can get "Scratch and Dent" copies
of most of the OOTS books for $10 off, which as far as I can tell are books that somehow didn't pass quality control. Doesn't look like there are "Scratch and Dent" copies of the new book available yet.
About Scratch & Dent Books: This is a "scratch & dent" product. That means that it has minor cosmetic damage (such as dings, spots, scratches, or dents), usually on the cover or title page. All scratch & dent books are still perfectly readable, however, and the binding is just as sturdy as pristine copies. We offer our damaged books at a lower price so that readers who don't care about the way they look can enjoy a bargain on a product we couldn't sell otherwise. Please note, however, that all scratch & dent sales are final.
