Like many children I had favourite childhood book which I loved and unfortunately lost,it meant a great deal to me and I really wanted to find it again but to no avail. However I heard about online book buying and thought I'd give it a try.I went to my usual search engine and found the WHSmith site and clicked away.The site loaded quickly and the home page was clear and straightforward.You can search for books by either title or author and you do not need the whole title give a word and it will search as many titles pertaing to the word by the author,good if you don't know both the author and/or title. I was not really certain if I had found the book as details were few but then I noticed a section"Out of print books",so again I clicked and put in the relevant search details within a minute it had come up with about ten books and their owners from Britain and abroad.The owners give a brief summary of the content condition any defects and any special features e.g first edition,signed etc.They also give a price which can be converted using the currency converter.You can e-mail the owner if you have any specific questions which is really good in dertimining the correct purchase.The purchase is made through a specified bookseller and made by cheque or credit card which is helpful and there are usually guarantees such as money back if not satisfied.It is worth checking the differing prices as these vary enormously given they are the same book also remember to include shipping or overland postage costs onto the price of the book. I am now awaiting the book and can't wait to share it with my children.It never ceases to amaze me how easy shopping is on line
