From Bookyards ….. thank you for your support.
Wow, what a great resource! Thanks for putting it together. I find it del.icio.us as well… and well worth a thumbs-up on StumbleUpon.
Thanks for sharing!Â
Cool! Will check some of these out.
A great list–my personal favorite place for books is Powells.com because I have a thing for used hardbacks. Especially vintage historical fiction from the 30s. Sometimes I find old photographs and memos tucked in the pages and I love it.
Thanks for the addition! If anyone else has favorites, let us know!Â
Thanks for the list. Another save to del.icio.us.
Excellent resource, Karen. There’s a lot of hard work putting together a list like this. Thank you.
I’m certainly saving it to del.icio.us.
