Coupons for AbeBooks

There's nothing like browsing through a bookstore, and with AbeBooks offering literally millions of titles, it's easy to lose track of time making a select pick from their cyber-shelves. Founded in 1995, they've taken huge strides in their 20-year history, and are now one of the world's leading stand-alone sites when it comes to books. From cheap textbooks to new releases - which are reviewed and recommended by Abe Books' in-house team of editors - there's nothing that can't be found, and the AbeBooks search tool lets its users get in touch with many independent booksellers, meaning that that hard-to-find book from yesteryear may quickly appear in the search results in a couple of clicks. New releases are discounted to the tune of almost 60%, and books can be sold as well as bought, providing the opportunity for the amateur Mr. or Mrs. Waterstones to get onboard in the bookseller stakes, too. » more

AbeBooks Customer Reviews

I can afford to literary at AbeBooks

I was really disappointed that Borders closed, and it’s too bad that Borders online never really took off, like it did in the US. But I do like using for finding older books at a great price. I’ve purchased a few new ones as well. It’s so hard to find good selections in bookstores these days. Heck, it’s hard to find bookstores these days, so sites like this are my refuge (libraries are good too). I just ordered a bunch of old books from my childhood for my son by Jules Verne. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and similar tales, and I picked them each up for under £2. And best of all, shipping is free, so it’s not like Amazon where different sellers charge you individual shipping. It’s brilliant. It’s like going to a car boot sale and finding all your favourites laid out for you at great prices.

Used textbooks at bargain prices

I’m currently enrolled as a pharmacy school student I was spending loads of money on textbooks for my classes until I discovered that you can buy used textbooks online from AbeBooks. The prices are much lower than the university bookstore and I can use the money I save on books to put toward my flat instead.

One book in particular cost nearly 200 pounds at the university bookstore. I was able to find it on AbeBooks for 42 pounds! When you’re a student every penny counts so being able to purchase my books at a discount is a relief.

I like the convenience of being able to order my books from home instead of queuing up for ages in the university store. The shipping is fast, which is key when you need a book straight away. Usually my books arrive within one or two days. You also can sell your used textbooks through AbeBooks, which I will likely do after this term. There’s no sense in keeping books I’ll never use again when I could make a few quid from selling them online. My flatmate has sold some of his books this way and swears by AbeBooks, so it seems like it works well for him.

Search for the books you really want here

I come here for used books. I used to check out the local shop, but I love being able to search by author name and/or title for books I really want, and this site offers that tool. Usually a used book shop is alphabetized and then the shelves are stocked full, but the shop doesn’t necessarily have what I came in looking for. And the problem is that I invariably leave with loads of other books instead. Well, here at AbeBooks, I wait until I have a list of at least a few books I want and I get online and buy them. Shipping costs are nominal, and I often find my books for under a pound each. Great buys.
