Abebooks would be wise to get rid of the crummy booksellers like Thrift Books

I was so enthusiastic when I first started ordering from Abebooks, but after awhile problems started to crop up with certain sellers. As I have read elsewhere here, there are some sellers that are absolutely wonderful. They ship your book out promptly ...

No longer a reputable business

I bought from ABE books ten years ago when they were a local US business and everything was fine.  They have been bought by some entity with no ethics who protects sellers when they commit fraud.  They are fraudulent themselves as I logged on ...

Searching for a rare book? Only Dean Corso can match Abebooks!

One of my favorite films starring my favorite actor, Johnny Depp, was Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate. It was a fascinating film about rare books, the occult and a devil in love. In the movie, occult obsessed Boris Balkan (Frank Langella) ...

By all rights I should start a readers anonymous meeting. The first step admitting that I read too much. I love Abebooks. It feeds my addiction for hard to find, out of print and antique books. When you bring up the web site this very eye catching ...

Due to the job I have, I need to buy books constantly. I always prefer to buy used ones, both to save money and recycle. I've been using Abebooks for years and have been extremely happy with their service. Abebooks doesn't sell books, per se, but acts ...

Abebooks.com is not a strict vendor but a database for a multitude of booksellers to sell their books. That makes shopping experiences dependent on the individual sellers and not the site site itself. The vast majority of the sellers, like BookByte, ...

Need a book you can't find anywhere else? Abebooks will probably have a copy listed and available. Abebooks.com is a site through which hundreds of independent used book stores list their inventories. The advantage to this is that you can search ...
