[dropcap]I[/dropcap] am often asked where I buy my books. The full answer is: lots of places. My city has a huge warehouse of a used bookstore that I like to frequent when I can. I can find wonderful deals there, but it does require a lot of time for me to dig through the piles and find what I need. In addition to this, you all know that I adore Amazon*. But my other go-to that I don’t mention very often is AbeBooks*. Today, I thought you two should meet.
It’s school planning season, which means it’s also book buying season, making this is a great time to discuss where and how to buy books. As I explain in the video below, when I shop for school books, I usually have two tabs open: one for Amazon and the other for AbeBooks. I compare prices and quality and then add whichever site wins to my cart — I usually check out with a big collection from both sites.
One of my favorite hacks is creating a want on AbeBooks, and so I recorded a quick video that explains briefly how to do it.
Oh! One other book buying tip: it is usually worth it to pay the extra dollar for better quality. Just sayin’.
