A book can have different prices. It is very interesting to
compare before buying.
- Issue or edition. Some only differ in the
preface and minor mistakes, others can have added chapters.
- Language. You can have the same contents translated in
- Binding (hardcover is always more expensive than soft
KNACK: To know if two books are exactly the same
(same contents, language, binding, publisher, year, etc) you
can compare the ISBN (International Standard Book Number). The
ISBN is a 13 or 10-digit number that uniquely identifies one
book or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is
unique internationally to that edition.
- Second-hand. This is the only way to get great books
that are not published any more. Usually, second-hand books are
used books, but they can also be unused and be in perfect
conditions. Most people do not collect books. They buy a book,
read it and then sell it, directly or through a second-hand book
store. Ex-library books are a similar case but they always have
some marks and writing in the first or latter pages.
- Condition. Used books can be like new and be much
cheaper. Nevertheless, they can also be more expensive, if they
are rare or collectible items.
- Location. Usually the books are cheaper in the country
where they have been published.
- Offers. To reduce their stocks, many bookstores sell
new books at attractive prices.
- Currency. when you pay in a foreign currency you incur
- Shipping cost. This is, probably, the extra cost that
increases more the total price of your book.
You can buy the books:
- Directly from us
- In any of the Amazon warehouses or
- In any of the marketplaces that Amazon has organised.
Obviously, you can try to find the book in any other bookstore or
library. And also directly from the publisher, but all these
options will probably be more expensive.
|Where to buy
|Directly from us
||As a general rule, we do not
sell books. But for different reasons we have one
or two spare copies of some titles that we offer at
discounted prices. Most of them are brand new, unused and in
very good conditions. some have very small faults. We sell
all of them on sale as second hand books in order to
eliminate duplications in our own library. These temporary exceptions are
marked with the button 'On
||We link the books in our listings to Amazon
(in our opinion, the biggest and safest on-line bookstore
worldwide), where you can find more information, customer
reviews and also a comparison of prices with other
Amazon has several warehouses over the world: USA,
UK, Germany, France, Spain,
Japan, Canada, China... To all
purposes, they act as if they are independent bookstores,
except in the fact that you only need to create an account
once in any one among them and they will be available to
all of them indefinitely, what makes the buying process
much safer and simpler.
The book of your interest can be available only in some
of the warehouses, sometimes with a significant difference
in the price. We have linked together several warehouses
so you can check availability and prices instantly (even
thought, this fact delays the downloading of our pages).
You can order from the Amazon location most convenient
for you. To figure out your cost, take into account
the exchange rates of the currencies published in www.xe.com. Don't forget to
consider the shipping costs to your destination, the
delivery time and the local taxes (when applicable).
Amazon has established different shipping costs for the
books sold from the warehouses or from the marketplace.
Those costs depend on the origin and destination
|Either from the Amazon
warehouses or from the Amazon marketplace, after adding all
the books of your interest to the shopping cart, you can
compare them and check their characteristics and reviews. If
you desire buying the books in your cart you have to
check-out and give the shipping and payment details.
If you desire buying only a part of the books but
maintain the rest for future reference, move these last to
the "buy later" list. When you execute the checking-out
you only buy the books in the cart at that moment.
If you do not like to maintain the references, you can
delete them manually or they will be erased automatically
after 90 days.
