67.2 BookPricer Web Site

There's a great Web site for doing comparative book shopping on the Web. It's called BookPricer, and the URL is http://www.bookpricer.com/. You search for a book, and it retrieves prices from multiple Web-based book suppliers. Recently, after I had just ordered Connors' Chemical Stability of Pharmaceuticals (1986) from Amazon for $195.00, I discovered two perfectly respectable looking suppliers who had the book for $130.00. A lesson learned. BookPricer also includes rare book and other used book suppliers.

Anyone care to share their experiences, good or bad, with Web-based book ordering?
