right? Well, the FIRST RULE IS: You have to search for
THE bargain! So don't buy at the first bookstore you see
on the net. I recommend that you check out several sites
before committing to the purchase. One place I saw a book
for $40 and turned around and found it on another site
for $4! Big difference! But you need to have the thrill
of the hunt, too. So, do check out these sites, and if
you find others, please let me know so I can add them to
the list (after I get my WISH LIST posted first, okay?).

books, auctions and such.
