I'm just wondering if anyone is familiar with this website? They have a book at a really great price that I'd like to order, but I've never heard of the website before. I just happened on it from a link on another website. I'm just kind of uncomfortable giving credit info to a website that I'm unfamiliar with. Can anyone set my mind at ease??

I ordered a book from this website a couple of years ago and didn't have any problems.  The book arrived in good condition and I was happy with the experience.  I'm not sure why I've never ordered from them again I guess I'm just used to amazon.com

Good Luck,

My husband and I have ordered a few hard to find books from Abebooks. Once a seller sent us our book and someone else's. We just sent back the extra and they reimbursed us for shipping. It was resolved rather easily. It is set up similar to Amazon Marketplace where individual seller's can post their books. So pay attention to the Seller ratings and you should be fine.

Abebooks has always been dependable for me.Amazon Marketplace can be cheap too.When I look for the cheapest price I will do a Google Search with the ISBN number and check a few price check sites.Sometimes that works very well. Another place that has some good deals and almost free shipping is BetterWorldBooks.Some hard to find books pop up there on occasion.
