    Need name of the discount book company

    Someone posted info about a discount book company, I think it was last year, and I can't find the entry. I also can't find any info in my notebooks and I know I ordered from them. Can you help me? Thanks.

    Not sure if this is it, but I've ordered many discounted quilting books from Martingale.com.
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

    This is the biggest discount bookstore I know of:
    http://www.hamiltonbook.com/

    Do a search of your email inbox if you ordered online; you might find an email receipt.

    I go to amazon find out who is selling the book and go to that company. Bookdepository has free postage I think world wide which really reduces prices.

    Half.com. It has everything cheap. It's the "book department" of eBay. I've ordered everything from textbooks to sewing books and you can sell books of all kinds as well easily.

    I always use Amazon.com but I'm also going to check out all the other websites others have posted. Surely from one of these places you ordered your books last year. Good luck!

    Unless you just want to own the book, have you tried the public library. I use them all the time. If I like a book enough to check it out three times, then I buy it. Saves me lots of money and storage issues.
