Just wanted to share a quick note. Lately, I have been buying a bunch of cookbooks at half.com. This is a subsidiary of Ebay. Multiple sellers list their books and you can search and pick the ones you want. You can add books to your "Wishlist" along with a price you are willing to pay, and you receive an email when the book becomes available at that price. Shipping within the US for the first hardcover is $3.99 and around $3 for hardcover thereafter. Unless I really really want a book - and want it NOW - I usually set the target price at about a buck. At those prices, if I receive and read a book and don't like it - I havent lost much - and I just donate it to my local Goodwill.
