If you live in the United Kingdom then you can just be presented with online book shops in the UK, and have the prices listed in pounds sterling.

Once you’ve entered an author and title, it’s time for a deep dive. Know the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of your chosen text? Type it in. And if you can’t or don’t want to be so specific then no problem - a Keywords field is there to assist further.

Expand the search to include Year of Publication, New or Used Condition and Hardback/Paperback. Finally there’s the Price option for those all-important comparisons. How do you feel about price comparisons? If you’d rather go on Opinions then that option’s there as an alternative!

But...What are the Benefits of using an Online Book Search?

You may try out a new seller such as AbeBooks, or you could go with the familiar Amazon name. The beauty of these online sites is that nowadays they include thousands upon thousands of independent booksellers all in one place!

And with you are accessing not just one of these vast marketplaces, but a group of them all in one go....that is a lot of booksellers vying for your custom!!

Buying used books in this way allows you to get the best condition book at the best possible price.

But not only that, it also allows you to track down more allusive copies of books and collectible editions.
