This are some of the bookstore that I use, some have real good deals in new
books. Sometimes I just try the name of the book in
www.google.com and go from there until I find the best price.

Perhaps you could add more of them.

BEST (http://www.EdwardRHamilton.com )

Borders, and Amazon.com.

There is a Border's where I live and Borders sold their online bookselling to Amazon.com. I can use gift cards in the stores and online, I ahve a teacher's discount card, and they have regular sales in the store and send out email discount coupons on ocassion. Online they sell used books, and that saves some money, too.

i'd have to go with half.com. mainly cause you can get some great books cheap. because it is part of ebay there are various prices and editions which is nice when buying or selling textbooks there.

So do you bid on the books?

no actually the people selling the books will determine the price they are asking for it. when the seller lists the book the edition and condition it is in are listed, from brand new to poor, then system comes up with an estimated price and the seller can change that to their personal idea. you just choose the book with the condition and price you think is fair. on the plus side most people go below the price of of what you could buy at a bookstore because the books are more likely to sell.

Well I said Borders/Amazon because of the reasons I stated above.

Half.com is used, not new books. And I have never gotten a used book tehre. I have gotten a number from the Amazon "Marketplace."

In Borders stores I can find books to actually peruse to see if I want to buy them, and I can easily get gift cards from friends and family to use at the stores and online. They have occasional discount coupons in the regular email newsletter I get.

I have avoided the eBay fanaticism, it seems.

I used to go just to Borders, Barnes and Noble and books a million, now I get better prices with www.Edward RHamilton.com (http://EdwardRHamilton.com)

They just carry new books at a very discounted price.

Thanks for the info Yoyita. Personally I like half.com, and Half Price Books (http://www.halfpricebooks.com/) which I visit frequently since they have physical stores here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
