I remember some one posting about a website for books where you list your book and get points. You then use those points to get other books. Does any one remember what website that was?

These lists have been on here before...and of course we all just keep adding to them.

OP, it would be nice if you could take all of the other links that have been posted on here before and make up one huge list...Alphabetical of course.

Then, it would be nice if SD maybe created a Sticky with all of the College Bookstore websites. (sorry, I'm too busy!(aka-LAZY)) shake head

Seems like there is a lot of folks who buy books and visit SD!

Here's my list of College Book Web Sites to visit that I posted back in Feb - most are dups of the OP's - some are not.

BTW, I want to throw a SLAM at one screwed me over this past summer semester. I needed a book they had listed and paid extra for 2 day shipping - it showed up 7 days later...and to top it was the wrong book. After calling them, they did search their warehouse for the book and could not find it...I ended up being late with my first set of assignments and ended up a week and a 1/2 delayed getting my book. Luckily for me, I found a seller on that was able to ship me the book priority mail and I got it rather quickly.

Anyway, just wanted to get my diggs in on Powells - THEY SUCK! Gee, I feel better now!
That sucks that happened to you with Powells, but if you've ever been there in person, you'd understand why. It's the biggest book store I've ever seen. Lots of out of print books and such you can't find elsewhere. Personally, I do my shopping on amazon or, but if I really need to find something I always check Powells.

#24 is a comparison engine for new/used books, I guess it could count.

If you want really good deals on used books, go to the site that book sellers use to get their inventory. If you go to one of these you may need to stand in line an hour before opening and be prepared to GRAB! Its not uncommon to pick up used books for a dollar or two.
