Default where do you buy used craft books online?

I've got a couple of new books that I like ("Creative Albums" and "Decorative Journals" by Donna Downey), and I've checked on Amazon and half.com to see what related books they have, but even used are a bit high sometimes. But my local libraries are a bit limited on which ones they have (although I have requested what must be a ton of scrapbooking and altered art related books lately!), so I want to buy a few more for ideas. Anyone have any favorite books that they always pull out or sites where they shop for used books? Thanks.

I bought quite a few crafting books from eBay. There are always good deals there. But when I don't want to wait I will try Michaels of Joanns and use a 40% off coupon. And Joann.com always has 40% off coupon specials. I would much rather pay $12 for a book than $20!

Don't have a Michael's yet (supposed to be coming soon), but I've shopped Joanns.com before, so I'll check there. Thanks!

Try http://www.addall.com It's basically a jumbo search engine that brings up the prices/shipping/stock info for lots of prices, allowing you to compare. I checked on the Creative Albums book you mentioned and the price ranges from $11.06 on up.

I usually order craft (and other types) books from here. The books are usually overstock items rather than used.

Also, I've bought used books from here as well. They sell used and new; the used are usually 50% off.
