AbeBooks.uk is recognised as one of the best places to shop for second hand books in the UK by many of our customers. When looking for second hand books, condition is vital. Use our guide to book conditions to understand the difference between condition grades such as fair, very good and fine. You will see many used copies described as 'as new' - these are usually remaindered books that failed to sell in a book shop and have never been read. If buying a hardback book, check on the presence of the dust jacket.
Many ex-library books are listed for sale on AbeBook.co.uk. These used books were once owned by, and circulated in, a public library. They can offer excellent value for money but may have been read many times. Expect to see a stamp, a card pocket, or catalog number in an ex-library book.
So search away – find that amazing bargain or unearth a long forgotten book that still deserves to be read.
