An alternate site for online book buying

If you really don’t want to use Amazon.com any more, I have read a suggestion that people try The Book Depository in the U.K. Apparently, they’ve got great shipping arrangements. Have a peek.

Meanwhile — support your local independent bookstores!

      Just a quick note, if you want to buy used books online, also be aware that Amazon owns ABE books. If that bothers you, there are many other bookstores online (like Powells Books) or used book sites similar to ABE.
      [Self Interested but still Altruistic Sentence Follows] For example, I sell on Biblio.com, a much smaller, independent booksellers collective — the choice is smaller but they are growing, and they earmark part of their profits for charitable efforts towards building libraries in Bolivia.
