Books on the Brain

I have books on the brain this week: I have made several recent visits to Chapters, have been pouring over the current issues of the Scholastic flyers (it doesn't help that they are online ;-), and am all geared up for the upcoming Bookfairs at the schools! Which got me to thinking....Have you discovered yet?

Now, like the name suggests, they specialize in recently discontinued and overstocked books, so you won't find every title there. What you will find is a wide range of titles covering a vast span of categories. And even with the shipping fees, when I do price comparison for books I can still get online at Amazon or Indigo (the bigger companies still have some of bookcloseouts titles at "list" prices, but I have also found books there that I can't get anywhere else!), Bookcloseouts still comes out a clear winner.

One word of caution, though: if it is for a gift, I'd avoid the "scratch & dent" sale copies. These are clearly marked in the description and are copies with a mark on the cover, a rip on the pages or dusty pages. Everything else is good to go though - I have placed several orders now and have been pleased with every single one!
