    Default cheaper textbooks


    I know I've seen websites listed on this group for finding textbooks

    cheaper than new. But I didn't write them down at the time, of course,

    and now I need them. My daughter will be a freshman in high school in

    the fall and two of the textbooks she needs will be brand new, and

    costing around $90 EACH.



    Can someone direct me? Thanks.

    www.alibris.com&nbsp; is the best one and chaepest I have found so far but

    another really good one for school books is academic book services.

    Academic Book Services - Shopping Cart

    Good Luck

    You might try eBay, my grandaughter got some great savings on there

    last year. Another good site is half.com, which is actually a

    subsidiary of eBay. On there you don't bid, you just see what

    everyone's charging and pick one. They're great for books and music. A

    lot of times cheaper than eBay too. And their shipping charges are

    cheap (media mail). I usually watch for one with good feedback ratings

    too. Also searching the individual books in Google might be a way to

    see what's out there cheaper. I do that a lot for comparisons. I am a

    bookworm!



    Good luck,

    Linda

    I am a graduate student and I have hundreds of dollars worth of textbooks to

    purchase each semester. I have found half.com is so far the best. I have saved

    tons of money- I have also sold my textbooks by posting them back on half.com

    when the semester is over. Sometimes I have been able to sell them for the same

    price or even more than I bought them! Stick with the individuals that are

    selling and not the big booksellers. I have found the individuals to be more

    reliable. Also, sometimes you can luck out on ebay, sometimes amazon, and once

    I found Barnes and noble to be the cheapest for one book.



    Good Luck- Michelle in MA

    Amazon.com as well--just look up the textbook by isbn, find it and then see

    if there are used ones for sale. I have bought most of my daughter;s college

    books there and resell them when she is done.
