Used Books? Yes, Please!

Posted by Lora | Uncategorized | Monday 10 May 2010 9:14 pm

As an avid reader, I’m always on the lookout for interesting books at great prices.  I use the library quite a bit, but there are some books that I just have to own.  Browsing through used book stores is a thing of the past now that I have small children, so I was so excited to find McKenzie Books!

McKenzie Books is an online used book store with a wide selection of categories to choose from.  The prices are very reasonable and they offer free shipping for orders over $25!  After spending just a few minutes at their site, it was pretty obvious that it would be very, very easy to get an order that qualified for free shipping….and not because of high prices.  They have so many books that I’d like to read!

One thing that sets them apart from any other used book store I’ve ever seen is their BRAIN (Books Recently Added Inventory Notice).  Basically, you can create a books wanted list and they will email you as soon as a book comes in that matches one on your list.  You can have it search for books by title, author, ISBN or even keyword!

I think this is a very valuable feature given the nature of used book stores.  It’s impossible to predict when a certain book will be available and we get busy and forget to check back in.  This does all the work for you!  Now that’s my kind of used book shopping!
