AbeBooks Reviews

Mar 31, 2024

Comment: AbeBooks is an amateur website with no oversight and incompetent staff. I was shipped a $200 book via the cheapest possible method, resulting in the book being thrown on the ground in front of my house and lost/stolen. AbeBooks made no effort to use signature-on-delivery. When I contacted them, the representative was indignant and uncooperative.

Comment: Books just as described, super fast shipping so arrive quickly. Saved $$ on college books over a decade ago. I still order from them books for leisure.

Comment: AbeBooks is an excellent place to find first edition and otherwise collectible books from third party sellers. The sellers here usually know what they're doing more than eBay sellers.
