Default Alternative source for books

Have been an Amazon shopper for some time. However, on occasion have found the price for some out of print books to be outrageous- $300 for a small reference on cartridges, etc)

Have found another site, have bought 3 items (books) thru them, and satisfied with the service. Site is Alibris.com

Anyone else that finds a good source of books for good money is invited to sahre the info.

I actually find pretty good deals on the bargain book tables at Barnes and Nobles I did pay a premium years ago for a Stephen Lawhead series that was out of print


but mostly it is Amazon for me

I have to concur, have bought my Mother many books from them, at incredibly low prices and 99% of the time their assessment as to a book's condition is spot on!
