Shopping for books (and other media)

Comparison shopping is one of the best Internet offerings. The following sites can help you find the best deals on books:

BookAse compares prices of books and textbooks.
BookFinder searches for new, used, rare, out-of-print, international books and textbooks.
BookPrice offers comparison shopping for books, CDs, DVDs, and games.
CampusBooks specializes in new and used textbooks; advertises average savings of 61%. Here you can also sell your own textbooks.
Campusi finds the cheapest books, CDs, DVDs, games, computers, and electronics.
CheapBooks provides price comparison for textbooks and books.
DirectTextbook looks for textbooks.
FetchBook… well… fetches books.
TextbookLand is yest another site that you can use to find the best deals on textbooks. [My latest experience with this site has been shaky. It could not find a book that other sites found and returned a few server errors when retrieving info for a book I selected. Not recommended for now.]

If you’re interested in sharing/exchanging CDs/DVDs/books check these sites:

chanceXchange is a free service where you can trade unwanted CDs, DVDs, and books for the things you want.
Swap Tree is an excellent site where you can trade CDs, DVDs, and books (also for free). I’ve used it for a few DVD exchanges and was quite satisfied.
