Doesn't anyone use Abebooks anymore?

Solved, I think. When I did my first  search at abebooks I gave the  
title as The Lore and Language of School  Children. (It's  
'schoolchildren.') The nine expensive offerings I came  up with were  
listed by their sellers as '.....School  Children.'

I've been having good luck with Amazon's 'used and new'   
selections--especially for paperback mysteries and recent   
trendy-but-ultimately-unsatisfying novels. Most of the time 'like new'   
mysteries and 'thrillers' go for a US penny. I suppose they make it up   
on the shipping charges. Even so, it beats the local drug  store.
