Looking for cheap online bookstores

  1. Aug 6, 2012 #1
    I was wondering whether anyone knows of any online bookstores where one can get hold of cheap textbooks (used or new). I'm currently mainly thinking of engineering mechanics, but general solid mechanics and numerical analysis would also be of interest to me. Thanks.

    What about Amazon.com?

    Abe books might be a good resource.

    x2 on abe. They often have a lot of international editions available as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I use amazon and abe both and agree, they are very good. I was just wondering if there were any other bookstores out there that I mysteriously had never heard of. But those bookstores you've mentioned are very good, too.

    try allbookstores.com

    Will show competing prices for a book from many online retailers.

    Not sure how it compares with that one, but I often use bookfinder:
