Used Bookstores

Posted on: March 29, 2009

My grandma is, once again, determined to get a bunch of book by one author (she has this thing where she has to read every book an author has written before reading another author) but she refuses to pay more than a couple dollars each. She won’t use Amazon ($3 shipping is too much!) and both Powell’s and Alibris don’t have enough on decent shipping.

I figured that many of you buy your books online. If you buy them used, where do you get them? I need a place where the shipping isn’t outrageous.

You only pay shipping, and it comes to about 2.23 most books. 🙂

Same with me. Paperbackswap.com and bookmooch.com. The shipping is usually cheaper than you would have paid elsewhere. When I’m not doing it online I go to Goodwill.

You should check out The Book Depository. Shipping is FREE and the prices of the books themselves are pretty low 🙂
