Aug 29, 2008
It seems the on-line sales for used books may be harming the publishing industry, or at least that is what publishing companies are claiming. However, there are some individuals in the publishing industry that feel this is not necessarily the absolutely true.

Not only are the used books taking a chunk out of the new sales market, on-line sales are also putting a challenge out to the brick and mortar stores. There are a number of on-line web sites that offer a variety of used books, which make purchasing these used books a lot easier and convenient. Book buying on line can be easy, and you don't have to get dressed up for the event.

With a regular brick and mortar store, you can find just about every kind of book out there. There are a wide variety of used book to choose from number of categories. In fact, you can probably find a larger selection of books online since there are many more options, and, those selling the books don't pay the high rent.

Purchasing used books on-line cost a lot less than buying used books at your area used book stores. One tip to make sure you are considering is making sure you add up the cost of the book, shipping and any other costs into the price of the book. You can find sites that don't charge shipping, but if you don't check up front, you could end up spending more than you had planned.

Once you have located the desired used book or books, then the next step is to make sure that the site is secure before you purchase them. There has been the usual concern with security and identity theft. One way to ensure you safety when purchasing at any on-line site is by using an on-line banking system such as Paypal. When you get to the shopping cart, you will see many times that the site is a verified secure seller. This is you best bet to making sure that you are going to be in good shape.

When purchasing at on-line web sites, remember that there are hundreds to choose from, so it would be wise to do some comparison shopping. Auction sites, and reseller sites are some of the best places to get your books.

One thing to remember, unless you are an avid book collector, you are really paying for the knowledge that the book provides, so as long as you can read the words, you can get the information. You may be able to get really good deals on cheap books online if you are not worried too much about the condition.
