[bksvol-discuss] Re: Ot: book buying

Hi Roger and everyone!

I just visited booksearch.com and followed the link "About Booksearch.com", and here is what it says:

This sounds like it could be a good resource.

Pardon me, when I mentioned Booksearch.com what I was actually thinking of was BookFinder.com. I just had a brief moment of confusion. However, it occurred to me that BookSearch.com sounded like something that would really exist, so I just checked. Indeed, there is a BookSearch.com. At first glance, though, I am not so sure that it is a place to find low priced books.

You might also want to take a look at CheapBooks.com, AddAll.com or BookSearch.com for other sites that sell used books. I think Thrift Books tends to beat them on price though. Note that I said tends. That is, on some specific titles you might very well find an even better price at some of these other sites.

Thanks a lot. I'll give it a go. It could be my computer decided to throw a
conniption fit (I wouldn't put it past it). Regards, Kim.

The books are of varying quality. At Thrift Books they are graded
acceptable, good, very good and like new. You can expect the higher quality
to tend to be more expensive. In my experience if a site is loading slowly
at one time it may very well be loading quickly another time. That could
just mean that the traffic is high right now. If you try again at an off
time it might work better.

Hi, Susan, since I tend to be impatient, how long does it take for the
site
to load? Also, are the books of good quality? Thanks and best regards,
Kim.

Hi Kim,

I sent it. It's thriftbooks.com and it just takes a long time to totally
load, for some reason! The Internet, as a whole, seems to be very slow
here
tonight! There are lots of images but I have been to sites like this one
before so I'm used to it. They shipped a book to me on Thursday, so, we'll
see how long it takes me to receive it. I believe the site said it could
take from 4 to 18 days. Good luck with it!

Susan
