I have used [url]half.com[/url] and [url]textbooksforless.com[/url], but I would guess there a probably better sites out there than that.

the big sites like [url]amazon.com[/url], [url]walmart.com[/url] and
[url]bn.com[/url] are ok, but don't seem to have the best prices. (Sometimes free shipping, but that is all).

buy.com usually has better prices than amazon, but nothing that you're going to retire on.

The text book market is not like the typical mass produced (best seller) market, so you don't get big flucations in prices. It also depends on what type of books (computer?) you're looking for. Since you live in the Boston area, the Mobile Book Fair in Newton has very good deals on hardcover books (if you've never been there, it's worth a trip as it's basically just a big warehouse full of books).

The only way you can really hope to find major discounts is probably on ebay.com or similiar site that would resell used copies.

I heard the best deals on books are in the UK/Europe... no idea who you would get them from, but they are half the price of the same book here in the US....
