Books for children
I was wondering if anyone knows a good website, where one could buy second hand or cheap books for kids (preferable in the UK sue to the shipping costs), except for amazon and ebay. (real books, not for download) :)

What about a book exchange site, Sara? Something like http://bookmooch.com/ which kind of works on the same principle as eslp: put something in, get something back...

Worth a look, anyway.


Oh, and there�s also http://www.abebooks.com/ -  online bookshop includes good value (and hard-to-find) 2nd hand books.

Hello there, I buy English books for my classroom and for my (bilingual) sons from Amazon UK and Amazon France.  I have also found second-hand English books in our local Emmaus shop - it �s worth a try!

I also buy used book through Amazon Uk - and they are really cheap!!
It �s wonderful that they give the option of buying used and not only new.

I buy second-hand childrens books from the library (their discards) and second hand sales (like church fetes). Sometimes I also use e-bay and Amazon.
