My favorite 2nd hand book “network”
www.bookfinder.com the first place to look
www.amazon.com a favorite, since payment can be made to more than one seller
www.bookbase.com/home a new find, let me know what you think of bibliofile bookbase’s offerings

Shops with online shopping too
www.strandbooks.com don’t know which is better, a visit or an online look; in NYC
www.powells.com in Portland, Oregon
www.monroestreetbooks.com in Middlebury, VT
nicholashoare.com – check out their recommendations “Notes at Random”; once, there were shops in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa; alas no more! Only Toronto remains come 2013. And now it’s 2015. All Gone! even the old website: it and Nicholas have retired.

Online & Book Blogs
oxfamwilmslow.wordpress.com/, I LOVE Oxfam BookVolunteer‘s choices, thoughts, and persistence; books were all for sale – if captured quickly – but mainly listed here for the fun of the perusing. NOW: memories – the site still available, but it’s come to an end too.
www.basbleu.com their catalogue is half of the fun on this site; online or paper editions
newbooksmag a blog/magazine dedicated to book news
Restful Repositories Apartment Therapy features 10 Charming Home libraries
The Book Jam Blog – “matching the perfect book with the descriminating reader”; based around Vermont’s own Norwich Bookstore
Slightly Foxed – a London bookshop: new books, used books and reprints (their own imprint), and even a book quarterly. Gotta LOVE it!
