    I know when I buy a book I always search for the cheapest price. Well on the envelope of a book I got in the mail today was this website so I thought I would try it. I randomly picked a quilting book title and put it in. It brought up 17 different places to buy the book . It covers all over not just the US . All places I look to compare prices it is going to be a real time saver for me.

    Thanks so much! I have a Kindle, but am always looking for "real" books.

    Just to give you an idea. I wanted the fabric dating book and couldn't find it cheap. My money is really tight like a lot of folks. Just for giggles I put in the title and it came up with one for 16.50 + shipping total 20.00 . I figured out if I didn't buy Anything at All for the rest of the month I could get this book. I snatched it up. lol Below you can see why.

    I use www.betterworldbooks.com

    Its run by people who try to save books from landfills, etc and gets books to places in the world to promote literacy. If you go to the site you can read about how they started. They ship anything you buy for free, and they used to sell some of the stuff for 5 for 15$ but I see now they have books listed at 2 prices, new and used at 3.48$ a book.
    I think you can sell books back to them, too, you used to anyway.

    for quilt books you: click popular catagories, click home and garden, click crafts and hobbies, finally click quilts and quilting.
    on the page that opens they have a book Id love (well, Id love a bunch of them!)- "The Prairie Girl's Guide to Life: How to Sew a Sampler Quilt & 49 Other Pioneer Projects for the Modern Girl" by Jennifer Worick. also, next page: "Quilter's Country Christmas: More Than 50 Projects to Make Your Home, Gifts, and Decorations Extra Special for the Holidays by Leslie Linsley. Id love that one too. Theyre both 3.48$ each, free shipping.

    Im really bad about books, even worse than collecting fabric! sharet
