Someone posted here about a site where to purchase books that was slightly cheaper than Amazon.  I am so far down the wishlist on some of my books that I may just have to break down and purchase the book.  I wish I had bookmarked it.  I could kick myself for not doing so.

I believe someone mentioned the Book Depository recently. They have good prices and FREE shipping.

I like to use www.bookfinder.com -- they survey all the sites and show you the available prices. There is also half.com

Just a reminder for everyone, links to commercial sites are not really allowed in PBS posts. When someone asks, you can always PM them the information.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  The Book Depository was it.  Now I am off to bookmark it.

I just discovered the Games forum and joined the October WL swap - his is another great way to get some of your WL books.
