If I want a book in a eBook format, than I’ll buy it from Amazon.com/.ca, since I use the Kindle app on my PC, and phone/tablet.I also pre-order some books from Amazon when I love a series, and want to read the next book as soon as possible.
However, when I buy books that have been published for a while, I usually use this website:
They offer free worldwide shipping, which is great. I also found their prices to be pretty reasonable. You can buy new books, but also used ones.
I also found out another nice online bookstore:
From what I’ve seen on their website, most of the books are “damaged” . All of them are in readable condition. It is a great website for those who do not want to/cannot pay too much for new books. Low prices, and a great variety.Clarification on the damaged thing:
Our books are new and we offer them at 50-90% off the original list price. How do we manage that? Here’s the secret: our books are marked down because most of the titles are marked with a small line or dot on the edge of the book by publishers who sell us their returns and excess inventory. This mark ensures that the books will not be returned to the publisher for a second credit. The books we sell are not used, they are unread and in excellent condition.
Scratch & Dent books may have dents, scratches, torn or missing dust jackets etc. but will be structurally sound and completely readable. If they are for any reason compromised structurally, we will reship the book or put a refund through for the item if we no longer have it in stock. The 110% guarantee will not apply to these items.
