This past fall I ordered a few of my books from internet vendors who sold softcover international editions of textbooks. For this first time in my college career, I spent less than 200 bucks on my texts, and they were exactly the same as the rather pricey hardcover books my buddies had. Unfortunately, I seem to be unable to find the website I purchased my books from. Does anybody know of a reliable internet sight where I can find international edition softcover textbooks? I found a place called "textbookx" which has some of these books, but it isn't the sight I used last fall.

PS Sorry if this wasn't the right place to post this thread. I couldn't really think of another place to post it.

Another option is to search for specific publishers that offer international editions, such as Wiley or McGraw-Hill. Additionally, some international editions may be available on websites like Amazon or eBay. It's also helpful to check with your college or university's bookstore, as they may have international editions available for purchase. Lastly, if you are unable to find the specific website you used last fall, you could try reaching out to classmates or professors to see if they have any recommendations for where to purchase international editions.
