Scheelt verzendkosten !
Barnes & Noble   Online source for new and used books. Utilizes ABE exclusively for used books. Passes along 15-150% markup to customer, but books are returnable. Also sell video, software, and music; competing hard with Amazon.   BOL (Books OnLine) has re-launched and is now providing serious competition for Amazon with thousands of books and a guaranteed 60% off all bestsellers and a minimum 20% off all other titles. (Amazon offer 50% off bestsellers but 30% off all other titles). A marginally faster and much clearer, less-cluttered opening page. BOL have also now moved into software.   BOL (Books OnLine) in Germany.   BOL (Books OnLine) in the UK.
BooksDirect   BooksDirect provides a gateway to all of the UK's leading book clubs. If you've been put off book clubs in the past but are a book lover you will be missing out if you don't at least have a quick look at this excellent site. BooksDirect claim to have 35 years as a market leader, over 2 million members, and annual sales of more than 15 million books so it has an excellent reputation.
Pick A Book   Pickabook has been rated a 5-star online bookshop by eShops. It offers over 5 million books from stock, large discounts, same-day despatch, low-price postage and delivery to addresses worldwide. Ordering is quick and easy and Pickabook´s website includes lots of interesting information for book lovers.
Readers Digest   Readers Digest range covers everything from health, DIY and cooking to romantic reading, condensed novels and genealogy. Readers Digest books are always thoroughly researched and beautifully presented so they're good to look at as well. Shame about the horrible opening page (the dreaded Prize Draw) ignore it and click on the small books link on the right-hand side
