Abebooks and Buying Used Books

As Abebooks itself says, Abebooks is the world's largest online marketplace for books. Whether it's new, used, rare, or out-of-print, you can find it here, through our community of over 13,000 independent booksellers from around the globe.

Abebooks (formerly just ABE) is a single-access storefront through which those 13,000-plus used-book dealers--many true mom 'n' pop operations--can make their entire stock available anywhere in the world. Practically every used-book shop that does sell on the internet belongs to Abebooks: if you use a used-book meta-search engine (an engine that searches the results of other search engines) to look for used books, you will only rarely find anything that is not listed on Abebooks, wherever else it may also be listed.

You can search for books at AbeBooks from the AbeBooks front page.
