Advantageseasy to use, many choices, safe and secure

DisadvantagesThe range of choice makes it very tempting to overspend

"I first came into contact with when a one time beau unearthed a piece of mild erotic fiction - Plaisir D'Amour - and had it sent to my home address. I was almost as excited to find out about such a site as I was to reread those short stories which had fuelled my own imagination many years earlier. From then on, I was an AbeBooks addict. I have used the site to look for new and out of print works, have bought school and university ..." Read review

Abebooks - something of a specialist site

AdvantagesObscure books at low prices

DisadvantagesNot that well-known, limited range, delivery varies

"As a student, I'm regularly faced with the task of finding textbooks as cheaply as possible - and this is where Abebooks shines.

If price and cheapness are your main criteria ..." Read review

Want a book-Find it here

AdvantagesFind any book

DisadvantagesThey add charges

"...of your family members favourites. The website itself is well set out and with the advanced search it is quite easy to find the exact copy of the publication that you require. This includes signed copies, first editions, and those with dust jackets. As long the members have a copy of your book you will definitely find them cheaper than you would anywhere else. If your book is one that was very popular then you can usually find hundreds of copies ..." Read review
