I love getting books via the internet. (I find it quite hard to pass
through a town with a second hand bookshop without going in for a
rummage, but that's another story ... I picked up a near fine Olympia
Press edition of Junkie for two quid about six months ago ...)

Anyway, Bibliofind is pretty good, and I check it out from time to time.

However, my personal favourite is ABE (Advanced Book Exchange), where
you can 'register' wants according to keywords
(authour/title/publisher/edition etc) and *every day* you get an email
(or three) listing that day's goodies ... you can set yourself up as a
user (for free) and change your want list as and when you like. It's
absolutely bloody brilliant!
