New cycle of used-bookstore extinctions on the way? by Bill[_2_]
In Southern California, where I visit used bookstores, it seems to me that about one-half {at least) of the shops around in the early-2000's are gone. In most of the cases I am aware of, the dealers were not on-line and usually did not even have a computer in the store. Simply put, they...

Determining value of used books. by [email protected]
I was looking for used books on the net and discovered in many instances the same book in similiar condition and edition varied in price from $8.00 to $100.00. So is there such a thing as a used book price guide to narrow down the actual cost of a book?
