Where do you go for books?

Post by Lowflyinmx3 on Thu Mar 15, 2012 5:50 pm

Ok I've been looking around to see who had the best prices on books as I'm looking for 3 or 4 specific books and they seen to be pricey. I know, I know, me reading a book, possibly the joke of the year. But since I'm new to this whole buying books online thing I want to make sure I get the best price just in case I have to buy a hooked on phonics kit as well. Thanks ahead of time everybody.

I get my books all digital now. I read them on my iPad and you can hold thousands of them on the computer. I also find them for very cheap on the internet. What type of books are you looking for?

Low,

I found a PDF copy of the first book by Champion, I couldn't find the other one, not very common. The copy could be better, basically some guy has just photocopied every page of the book. PM me your e-mail address and I will send it to you. It would be good to look at if you are undecided about purchasing the book.

Cheers

If you're talking about real BOOKS the absolute best place to go is www.abe.com. ABE stands for American Book Exchange. It is a network of used book stores. You can get any book you are trying to find, no matter how rare. Prices are usually a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere, including shipping.

I'm big on 1960's and 1970's spy books...this is the place to go.

Hands down, your best resource.

OK, I said cheap but it is what the market will bear. Here's the link to ABE.com for Ron Champion. This copy is $130!!!

http://www.worldcat.org/ Find items in libraries near you. You might find what you want at the library if you don't plan on keeping the book. This one looks interesting too==> http://www.librarything.com/ Look at this link http://www.librarything.com/work/1355247. I don't know what it cost but I found it here. I don't know what your zip code is but this link shows the nears library to me where this book is http://www.worldcat.org/title/how-to-build-a-cheap-sports-car/oclc/61228828&referer=brief_results
