I’d like to think of the four of us here at BookFinder.com as being fairly globally-minded; we all speak second (or in some cases, third) languages, and have all spent time living or working in other countries. This background helps motivate us to pay close attention to small details, to help ensure that the site isn’t too parochial.
It’s fun seeing bibliophiles overseas benefit from our work. Here are two recent blog posts from tech bloggers outside the US, comparing BookFinder.com to Amazon.com:
Writes Abdylas “Ades” Tynyshov, a Kyrgyz blogger now studying in Malaysia:
Bookfinder - find and compare prices: “The good thing about this site is that it works in US and internationally, for international users it detects your origin of country and can search for books that can be shipped to your country. Because most of the time Amazon won’t ship used books internationally.”
Writes Italian blogger Nicola Deiana:
Do You Want to Buy a Book? Bookfinder is here: “Put most simply- for any book found you can display one page with its features. One of positive aspect is that bookfinder works in US and internationally, so you can find books by search for your country. First impression: In my view, I have to say so far it’s an incredible alternative to Amazon. In terms of ease of use and functionality, bookfind is one of the best search for books that I’ve seen yet. If you ever need a places to hunt for ebook, Bookfind provides a large range of book in their archive.”
