Well i just said Amazon as its my main english books provider, but i have also bought on alibris or abebooks or even on play.com (free shipping! :thumbsup
I prefer new books, but also buy used if the book is out of print (like the Battles and Leaders of Civil war i posted above. I got each of the four parts from a different place :blink .
I've never bought on eBay still. It seems a (wild) world on their own and kind of scares me
My main point on that line was not the "amazon" part, but "30 bucks" part

WoI -- US Colonials were on the winning side
ACW -- only US Colonials fought in it
War of 1812 --- USA... hmm .. did they win this one ?
