“AbeBooks.co.uk review”

published 17/07/2008

easy to use, many choices, safe and secure

The range of choice makes it very tempting to over...

I first came into contact with AbeBooks.co.uk 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...

Obscure books at low prices

Not that well-known, limited range, delivery varie...

As a student, I'm regularly faced with the task of finding textbooks as cheaply as possible - and this is where Abebooks shines. I've found several texts on there for less than half the price (which is handy when you consider the average textbook is anywhere from £40-60.) If you have the basic...

“abebooks.com”

published 13/07/2005

easily searchable

dealing with people with variable knowledge

right lets be honest to start with I sell books on abe so have a vested interest but from this viewpoint I can tell you the pros and cons of the system. Abebooks.com seems to me to be the most comprehensive second hand book site. It has a very easy initial layout - you can search by highest...

“Want a book-Find it here”

published 16/09/2003

Find any book

They add charges

Abebooks is an excellent website where you cannot only find that obscure book you need for university studies but you can also find original copies 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...

“Brilliant resource”

published 01/07/2007

Access to a huge array of books

None

After struggling to find the rare and obscure books I was after, and after trawling round local book stores, I found abebooks.co.uk online. Following a quick search, I found a number of the books I was looking for, with a number of options as to price and condition. The options to buy books from...

Occasionally listed books may have been sold

I have been using ABE Books, an online search service (www.abebooks.com) which links together booksellers in the UK and the US. Its speciality is in finding rare and out of print books on any topic you care to imagine. I have to report a high degree of satisfaction with the service, although...

“My Thoughts...”

published 14/07/2008

Variety, cost, availability

More people aren't aware of it.

Reading is a hobby I enjoy doing in my free time, and I like to get books of different principles, ideas, and beliefs. With this in mind, web sites that offer such a variety are hard to find. When I found AbeBooks.Co.UK, I discovered a vast array of exciting novels, poetry, plays, etc...

I bought this book from a charity shop after reading another one of her books that I brought from a boot fair. I enjoyed it as it was deeply engrossing and it kept me interested and I found that I was kept wondering what was going to happen next. I found I got involved and wanting to get answers to the questions that Temperence was asking in the 'who', 'why' and 'when'. Overall an excellant book for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. Also I enjoyed the series 'Bones' on the tv and watched with great interest to see what would happen next.

EASE OF USE

TOO REMOVED AND COLD

I have bought many books off of the internet through the big search engines like abebooks and Justbooks and watched the ups and downs with frustration. Massive advantages are gained from these sites but nothing can beat getting to the bookshop itself. ABE is very hot but you lose the intimacy of...

“Selling on ABE”

published 17/01/2003

Your books are visible to the world

Very few seem to sell

I listed about thirty quality books for 12 months on ABE. Only one sold a car book to a bookshop in Texas. So the world is your market bit worked. I am in the UK. I researched the prices of identical books and always pitched them lower but to no avail. What are other peoples experiences of...
