Where do you buy used *PRINT* books?

I know this is an ebook forum, but since this is the lounge, besides Amazon, Alibris, Ebay, where do you look to buy used print books? Looking for a little of everything - fiction, nonfiction, textbooks. Thanks in advance.

Our local second-hand bookstore, De Slegte. They also sell remaindered book (I like the Dutch/Jidish word for it better: ramsj )

I buy and sell innumerable used print books through Amazon. I find it to be a great place to sell - way better than eBay.

I haven't bought a paper book in a while, but I used to just use Amazon Market place, you can get a new book for like $5 in the states.

I haven't bought used books in a long time either. However, I have a local store that I like to go to and spend hours looking at the covers and flipping through the pages. Still one of the best experiences ever. I used to spend hours . . . *sigh*

I use AbeBooks.com and Amazon Market Place. When it comes to old collectible type books, nobody beats AbeBooks.com. When it comes to convenience I prefer Amazon (1-click).
