  • Is the writer (Dostoyevsky) being vague here or am I the one misunderstanding?
    Expanding the full information for the paperback copy, I see the publisher to be Publishing. To be honest, I would not buy a book from such a publisher. Typically, I look for publishers that provide serious introductions, notes - particularly where justified for historical novels or ones from a past era, or by an author writing in a different language than English. I look for good, used copies most... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • Question about eBay seller
    That's interesting... I ran into similar behaviour once on where the dealer listed a book at a price and then ordered the book on my behalf from a second dealer. The second dealer's copy was atrocious, and the one from the first dealer was listed as 'near fine'. Guess it is no surprise it would happen on ebay too... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • Has anyone else noticed this when buying used books online?
    I read a lot and buy quite a bit of used books for myself and to give away. I have waaay more problems with orders with Catholic bibles and books from the major online used booksellers than non-religious book orders. Has anyone else run in to this? Sometimes they'll process refunds or returns and other times they refuse. They'll send completely different books, not send all of the books, or send damaged ones. I've... - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Where do you all buy your books? I can’t spend much on them but love to read.

    The "gold standard" book is by Stamford Kiwanis - Niagara Falls, Canada - a History. Long out of print but there are 16 available on, and, of course, able to be borrowed from the library. The book Images of a Century is also out of print, but there is a digital copy on the library website (click here). The library's historic digital collections has over 1000 photos of clifton hill going back in time... - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
