At the moment my fella and I are busy setting up one of my ebooks on Amazon, which involves creating a Kindle-friendly version. Last week he bought a basic Kindle so we can see what the finished article looks like in context. It’s a cool little thing but I must admit I still prefer the real thing. The Kindle might grow on me. As it is, I’m hooked on the genuine article and chuffed to bits to discover AbeBooks.
It’s weird I haven’t run across them before. I guess, like many people, I’ve been stuck in the Amazon groove from the offset. But AbeBooks have been around since 1996, a very long time in internet land.
AbeBooks is an online marketplace where you can buy new, used, rare and out-of-print books. It’s also a great resource for students, well known and loved for selling cheap textbooks.
It works by providing an interface for thousands of professional booksellers all around the world, who tap into the AbeBooks system to offer literally millions of books for sale.
It’s easy, safe and secure to shop there. You buy via the site’s secure checkout then the seller ships your books direct to you.
Falling in love again…?
I’ve been tracking down books I adored as a child and teenager, just to see if they still give me the same kick. I bought The Secret Garden recently, which was a complete delight. Heavenly. But I’m still looking for the book that set me off on a lifetime’s love of fiction.
Sitting quietly in the library at Kings Manor school in Middlesbrough, aged twelve, I raced through this book in a couple of hour-long timetables library sessions. I still remember the sheer delight, excitement and pleasure I got from it and I’d love to find out if the thrill stands the test of time. AbeBooks might be the place. I’ll be there this evening, tracking down a copy of The Saracen Lamp by Ruth M. Arthur.
