If you're into used books you might like to check out

http://www.abebooks.com/ .

They handle a great variety of titles for thousands of booksellers. My recent purchases include Trout, by Ray Bergman (1949); Points and Lines, by Seicho Matsumoto (1986); A Town Like Alice, by Nevil Shute (1952); Decisive Battles of the U.S.A., by J.F.C. Fuller (1942); and Trouble Is My Business, by Raymond Chandler (1992). This is the best way I know to get classic books at affordable prices.

<hr /></blockquote>Howdy Leviathan,

Thanks for the heads up. I found an out of print pool book there for half the price I could get it used from Amazon dealers. I appreciate you sharing this!
