I can't say enough good stuff about Bookfinder - always my first & usually my last stop when I'm ready to buy another book!

I suppose sounds rather simple but because not everyone is looking for the same kinds of books

"For Business (which for me is ""Technical"") books, I am heavily invested in PAPER. Why? Because ELECTRONIC is no cheaper. In fact, for my next book, it's actually MORE expensive.

I just ordered Lammle's CCNA Wireless Book (because I'm tired of working on Microsoft tests). It is a recent book (end of July), and the Kindle version isn't to be released for a month, and it is available for pre-order at $39.99. I paid $31.49 for the Paperback (which should be here at the end of the week or so). Wait, am I saying that for NOT getting paper, I pay a $7.50 premium? Even when the Paperback has the entire TEXT in PDF Format?

Maybe that was a BAD Example. Lets try the CCNA Official Exam Certification Library, there the Book is $37.79 and the Kindle is $30.23. However, the Kindele doesn't come with the CD with Test Questions (which are probably not representative of what's on the test
anyway), and a DVD Video of the Author attempting to discuss Subnetting and other stuff.

However, the Batteries on my Book never die. Unlike my 1800K Floppies, and 80 Column Punch Cards from College, I DOUBT if my reader for books is going to be outdated anytime soon. And, when i leave my book on the front seat of my truck (where my books normally life while I'm reading them), it won't cook from the sun, and it is NOT likely to get stolen (even in the Bay Area, nobody is going to break into my truck for a Microsoft or Cisco manual (I might get a note telling me how sorry they are that I picked the WRONG book).

When I'm done with the book, I can GIVE it away to someone with similar interests, or I can put it on the shelf for future reference. For that small margin, I'm willing ot pay a bit more. "
