Whilst Amazon leads the way in the its level of choice and service in the sites we have included, there are some special things to look out for. The Book People Online offer some amazing discounts, but only on a limited range, while regular Heffers customers can arrange a credit facility. If you are a regular online book buyer, it may be best to browse for the right price (or use one of the book finding services), which is, after all, what you would do in a real store.

Do stop back regularly as we are constantly finding new ideas that are cropping up on these sites.
