  • Used book stores (Score:3, Informative)

    Now I will get email updates whenever some books I want are available for cheap from one of the used book stores. I'm sure Amazon gets a cut of this however.
    Don't feel bad about buying used books through Amazon. A couple of used book sellers I've talked to say they have a decent amount of ongoing business through Amazon's used book sales. The volume seemed to be enough to be the difference from wondering if they'd make rent this month to knowing they'd have enough to make payroll and then some.

    If you're serious about looking for used books on the web, may I recommend ABE Books [abebooks.com]? This is a small outfit run in Victoria, BC, that serves as a world wide clearinghouse for small used book sellers. Sometimes, the cheapest copy of a book you want may be sitting on a shelf on the other side of the ocean. ABE can help you find that book. :-)
