1 Stars Worst experience

On December 10th I ordered a book for my spring term class. I was never given a tracking, but they said it was on its way with a 6-8 business day delivery date of Dec. 24th. You have to wait until that day before you can notify them that you didn’t receive it. Then they lied and said it got lost in shipping. Then they said it was a holiday problem. They once again said it was on its way and it would be 4-6 days. They still did not ship it. I was running out of time to get the book for my class, so I told them I would need them to cancel the order if they could not get it to me by the 5th of January 2019. They finally admitted that they could not get it to me. I do not like being lied to about my order. Now this was all from a bookseller that Abe Books contracts with. So Abe Books wasn’t the actual problem. Their WFL bookseller from Holtsville, New York is the one that misrepresented and lied about this purchase. I will never try to get a college book from Abe Books again. I can’t trust that it’ll ever arrive!!

5 Stars finding test books

If the ISBN number is used it is very easy. Text pop right up and the selection is great with descriptions that detail use and whether CDs or other assits are included.

5 Stars I'm Impressed

I had never purchased anything from Abe Books up until about a month ago. I am now hooked, as all the old titles that I remember reading from years ago seem to be available. I have also found countless titles from my favourite authors that have been out of print for almost as long as I have been alive. I am so impressed with the wonderful service, unbeatable prices (and range of prices) as well as the unbelievable speedy delivery. I can't recommend Abe Books highly enough. Andy.

5 Stars My "Go-To" Store!

My wife loves books - real books, old books. Over the years, I've use AbeBooks to replace her paperback favorites with 1st edition hardbound versions. AbeBooks has consistently had what I wanted in stock or available. I've never been disappointed with a purchase. This is a first class business.

5 Stars Best Used Book Seller!!!!


I recently Purchased the Textbook "Java For Everyone" by C. Horstmann from Browns Books Hull, AB United Kingdom and they saved me $100 compared to exactly the same book from the George Mason University Bookstore. They sent the book with normal delivery, but because they were so fast with processing, the workbook arrived in ten days!!! I will definitely purchase from them again, and I already told all my friends on Facebook to but all their textbooks from the seller, Browns Books Hull, AB United Kingdom!!!

3 Stars Abebooks Review

I love being able to find old juvenile fiction books as gifts for my husband on Abebooks. I have never had any problem with purchasing or receiving any book from any seller on the site. I would like it if there were a more sophisticated search process, but this is my only complaint!

5 Stars Low prices!

Whenever I wish to buy a book, I check Abebooks and Amazon to compare prices. 9 out of 10 times, Abebooks comes out ahead. The website is easy to use and very consumer friendly.

5 Stars great website

This is the best website I have found to buy books for cheap. It beat even Amazon! Great variety and prices.

4 Stars Consistently Meets my Needs!

I am able to find what I am looking for from Abebooks. Books that aren't available elsewhere can usually be found here. They have so many book seller resources that you will greatly increase your odds of finding that illusive title here.

5 Stars Great selection!

Often has 1st editions, rare, and old books for a fair price. Fast shipping. I love Abe Books!

5 Stars Couldn't ask for anything more!

Of all the sites I checked, Abebooks had the lowest price AND free shipping. Within an hour of placing my order, I received an email saying it had been processed and would ship in 1-2 days. Using Abebooks saved time that I can now spend having fun. Thanks!

5 Stars Enter MULTIPLE ISBNs!!!

One of Abebooks greatest (slightly secret) features is the ability to enter UP TO TEN ISBNs when you click "TEXTBOOKS" on the top bar... it's a great feature when you're buying all the textbooks for the semester. Just go to your school's bookstore website and note the ISBNs, then enter them in the box and choose from the best deals on the web. And remember, you can often save on shipping by grouping purchases by vendor. I've used Abebooks for over a year for multiple purchases and everything has been smooth.

Happy shopping!

4 Stars Abebooks as a buyer and seller

I began buying textbooks for school from AbeBooks and found the experience to be comparable to Where I think AbeBooks really shines is in service to the seller of books. It's remarkably easier to sell and manage inventory on Abe than on Half. When I worked for a small used-and-rare bookstore, we sold almost entirely on Abe for this reason. The software we had links up easily with Abe and it's a much easier management experience. Now I show on Abe first because of a weird brand loyalty of sorts. I love Abe and hope it continues its user-friendly merchandise listing.
