Book price comparisons are a great way to save money when buying your new or used textbooks. Obviously we here at CompareBookPrices.org highly recommend you use our very own Book Price Comparison Tool located on our home page.
This tool gives you the power to compare book prices from hundreds of various book vendors from all over the world. All you need to do is to enter the author, isbn, or name of the book and hit search.
The amount of money you can save by taking the time and doing some quick book price comparisons is not small at all. One quick check of my local book store has the price for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone” at the cheapest price I have ever seen a physical book store sell it for at $16. That’s not so bad I hear you say, no it’s not, I reply, but one quick look below shows you that you can get a high quality used copy for a quarter of that price, and a brand spanking new copy for $6.
Lets have a quick look as some example book price comparisons to see just how much you can actually save when you take the time to do some price comparisons.
Lets try out with one of the most popular books of the last few decades, Harry Potter. There are a few hundred million copies floating around, so it should be fairly easy to find a good deal.
SImply Type in the term you are searching for, in our case, Harry Potter
Then a list of available titles with the search term in it will come up. Pick one of these to do a price comparison for a particular book.
We clicked on Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, lets see how cheap we can get it.
Just under $6 from an ebay site, $7 from Amazon, and $12.45 from BookByte.com. There is also one eBook listed for just under $9, but if you want to search just eBooks, try out our eBook Price Comparisons Tool.
