    catagory - quilting put in sort by amount , the oldest and less expensive will come up, but newer ones are available in the over 400 pages of available books under quilting.

    A great place to get books from. I like that no matter how many books you order, shipping is only $3.50

    While they do donate to charities, they are a "for-profit" enterprise.

    There are a lot of these out there, making you think they are a charity, like the "Planet Earth" drop boxes where you would think the clothes you donate goes to needy people but it is, in fact, sold.

    I use Half.com. That will tell you where you can get a book used. Better World is one of their fulfillment companies. If you want to check out a book from the library before you buy it, try the website, www.worldcat.org. You enter your zip code the first time you use it and after entering a book's information, it will tell you where the nearest library is.

    when you are really, really desperate to find a book the site to go to is www.bookfinder.com - pulls in info from bookselling sites all over the world. Although their listings are not always up to date.

    I love that place. I have ordered from there for a few years now. Just ordered a couple books for a class I am taking. Better yet, shipping is free if you use standard shipping.
