I wrote about Amazon alternatives a while ago and produced a list of various companies that deal in all sorts of things. This time, I will do my best to stick to books. We love books, books end up in every room of our home and so when we get them, we want to make sure we do our bit for the world. Sometimes this means spreading our buying habits around a bit, so without further ado, here's some great alternatives to Amazon.
Alibris are based in America, have regular deals and also offer textbook rentals for a fraction of the usual price.
