Quick Tip for Finding Books

Amazon, Abe Books, Albris are the three main sites that I use.  Amazon is usually the cheaper one, but not always.

Roses & Thorns: Beauty and the Beast Retold is a book that my wife wanted for either her birthday or some holiday.  The initial search took me to the first image.  For now, I will not shell out 235.91 or 85.21 (maybe later in life) for one book.

I then decided to try Abe Books, and Albris, but no luck.  Abe Books was the same price, and Albris (they did not have it).

I went back to Amazon, and clicked the Author’s name.  That is where I stumbled upon the second image.  Yes, the images show the same cost, but I did not have an idea for a segment of my blog until after the fact.  There was one copy, used, for 18.00 (3.99 Shipping), so the overall price 21.99.

Remember to click all links such as the author because something that is hidden can be found. (This could be a form of Browsing and Berry-picking (a research method, more on that to come.))
