My wife and I had our first play of this the other night and it was a lot of fun. I have come to find that these little quick games can be a blast. I currently have many of them that we enjoy such as:

Battle Line
Guillotine
Jaipur
Jambo
Lost Cities
Times Square

Currently she is bed ridden so the great thing is we can play these together while she is laying bed (except Jambo).

My question is what am I missing that is similar that we could play?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Not similar to Biblios mechanically but in the category of little fun card games are: Citadels and BANG!.

Some of my favorites in a similar vein are Triumvirate, Lords of Scotland and Haggis

I have attempted to get it through math trades and even a couple of auctions but have been unsuccessful. Since it is out of print people are asking a lot for it and I am trying to watch my spending.

If you're willing to try dice instead of cards, you should try:
Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
To Court the King
Airships

Dice can be played in bed with the purchase of a dice tray. These all have a similar strategy/luck ratio to the ones you named.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Traders of Osaka
Pecking Order

Heads up that both of these are OOP though. If you decide you want them you can always trade for them, or in the case of Pecking Order there are copies for decent prices on BGG marketplace.

PAX uses a similar mechanism to Biblios to draw and play cards.

Sobek seems to be a nice option too.

How about The Court of the Medici, Trade Winds, Farmageddon, or Spite and Malice? Spite and Malice could be played with two or three decks of regular cards.

Hope this helps.

I haven't had a chance to play Biblios yet, but it sounds like it has some elements in common with Modern Art: The Card Game, which I could not recommend more highly.
