I’m headed back to uni this month to start my Masters Degree in eBusiness and Communication from Swinburne.

I’m in the process of tracking down some used textbooks and would love to hear from you if you’ve got any ideas.  I’ve looked on delicious and done my Googling, but have only found four sites and two of those aren’t Australian.

 Here’s what I’ve found so far:

http://textbookexchange.com.au Found 1, possibly 2 of my books at less than 50% of retail, so will be keeping this site near and dear

http://ebay.com.au None of my books yet, but have created a “Want” request

http://www.amazon.com Ordered one because it was cheaper than any of the used ones

http://www.abebooks.com Haven’t really been impressed with their prices

I’m going to try Yahoo! Answers to see if I can flush out any more Australian used textbook sites — if you’ve got sources, please leave a comment.  I don’t mind if you are a member of the site’s affiliate program – make sure to include your affiliate link so you get credit if I buy… :^  )
