      I bought a used book from our giant online bookseller here in Canada, Chapters/Indigo, and except for the slightly longer delivery time, I was really quite happy with the condition of the book and the price I paid. Great Hub!

      As a part-time student, this is GREAT information for me. I'm always looking for ways to save money on books. Amazon does have a very large selection that I can look through, but it can be difficult to find what I need!

      Thank you for writing this Hub! Sharing this with other readers!
