"I just wanted to say thank you for providing the service that you do. Through one of your retailers, I just found book I needed for my College French I class at only $17.50 (used and including priority S&H). It's SO much more affordable than my college's bookstore-- they wanted over $75.00 used or $120.00 new for the same book! With college tuition going nowhere but up (and up, and UP), I couldn't afford to pay for classes and books without your site!"

“AbeBooks has made college books affordable. My school bookstore wanted over $85.00+shipping for the book that AbeBooks sold me for less than $30.00 including shipping. I bought my sister a present for telling me about your site and saving me so much money!”

“I ordered one of the books on a Friday morning and had it in hand on Monday afternoon. The other order I placed came just a few days later. All of the books were exactly what I needed and in exactly the condition described on the web site. I have already recommended AbeBooks to several other people and will continue to do so. Thank you.”

“I recalled your site, and found the book my daughter needed, not only was it one dollar, but you offered 2 day shipping. That was the biggest relief for her, to get it FAST.  Thank you so very much.  She now has your site bookmarked, as do all her friends and roommates.” -- Jodi S.

“Thank you for getting my book to me in such a timely manner. I ordered school books from several different sites. There are some sites that still haven't shipped the book to me while I've had the book I ordered from your site for a couple of days. In the future I will be using your company for all of my textbook needs.”  -- Jay-Allen E.


“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What a wonderful service you have! I recently purchased a book that was not even in my university bookstore and was completely amazed as to how quickly my order was processed. In two business days my order was received and shipped from Atlantic Bay Books in Virginia to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Absolutely beautiful! I will definitely share this website and your bookseller with my classmates! Thanks again” -- Robert

“I just received the textbook I ordered on Monday. I was so happy to receive it in such a timely manner and that it is everything you promised.”


“I just wanted to let you know that I am really impressed by how fast you delivered a textbook that I had ordered. I am really impressed and will definitely remember you the next time I need any books. I needed that book very urgently and it got to me way earlier than I expected. Thanks a heap for such prompt service!”

“I finally convinced my son to give your booksellers a try. Even with a long weekend, he received half of his textbooks within 2 business days. We paid a bit extra for faster delivery, but given that we saved over $200 from the university bookstore prices--it was well worth it. Thanks a million, or $200, at least.”
