Web sites such as Amazon.com and CheapBooks.com create competition among sellers, many times students themselves, allowing other students to buy cheap used textbooks. This semester I bought one of my many books for 88 cents.

Don't buy books until after the first day of class when you know if you need them. If the book is on reserve in the library, you don't need to buy it because you can check it out. If you do need the books, check out the prices online at cheapbooks.com and amazon.com.

To compare WNMU's bookstore prices to prices online, I chose 25 books at random that were found inside the bookstore, and compared their prices to what I could find online. I searched through Amazon.com, Half.com and Cheapbooks.com for the books on my list, and found a wide range of prices. Several of the bookstore prices were close to, if not under the price of the cost of the books on the Internet.

She said that many of her friends have used a Web site called Cheapbooks.com because it compares the prices of many major online bookstores to help you find the cheapest price. The site compares prices from Amazon.com, EBay's Half.com, Barnes & Nobel.com, Overstock.com, as well as other stores like Ecampus.com and BiggerBooks.com.

Chi di noi non sogna di avere un amico capace di rispondere a ogni domanda, un amico raggiungibile nel momento del bisogno, cui chiedere qualcosa che non si conosce, certi di una risposta in qualche modo utile? Ebbene, oggi in nostro soccorso arriva, guarda un po., la solita Rete. Da qualche tempo funzionano, con risultati più discreti, dei servizi online che «rispondono a domande», gestiti da societàome l.immancabile Google (answers.google.com) o da altre compagnie come ingenio.com, cheapbooks.com o wondir.com.

Internet-savvy students rely on sources besides the University bookstore to purchase books, with many turning to websites such as cheapbooks.com or amazon.com. To save time and money on shipping, students had the added benefit of Pace Computer Society's (PCS) pacetextbook.com, until the annual year agreement with their server expired. Bad financial planning prohibited the site from being renewed, thus a useful book-selling outlet was lost to students.

Cheapbooks.com is part of Amazon. The Web site says putting an item in its marketplace doesn't cost "until your item sells." After someone buys the book, Amazon receives 99 cents plus a sales fee.
(CheapBooks.com no longer operates an Amazon ZShop)

Most students sell to local bookstores like U.B.E., Dowdy Student Stores and Book Trader. However, Internet sites, such as Amazon.com, Cheapbooks.com and Textbookx.com are increasing in popularity, but many local businesses give warning about the online book buying trend.
