I have been buying books from Thrift Books for four years. I used my PayPal account and have never had a problem. Last month one of the books I ordered (they only had one copy) and someone was ahead of me.They immediately notified me via email and credited the amount back to my PayPal account.

Also I have never received any book in poor condition. I don't order the Mass Market Paperbacks I usually order Paperbacks or Hard Cover in good or very good condition.

@katharsis thanks another for another used book website I am going to check it out.

Looks as though they're also in abebooks. Did a thriftbooks search through my email and I've made numerous successful purchases with them through abebooks.

Why not just use the Thriftbooks site?

I've been studying WWII for about 3 years....TB has had a wonderful selection.....

just tried the site to see what they charge for a good condition book i just purchased and is on the way from an abebooks seller - and thriftbooks was way higher. the thing about abebooks is the shipping time is much longer than any seller on amazon, and you sometimes get one that ships from the uk. patience is a virtue though.

Have ordered more than a few times from Thriftbooks with no problems.
Also have ordered from the mentioned abebooks and betterworld books.


If it is a particular title I'm looking for I usually use bookfinder.com
(has results from those bookstores mentioned plus others)
