Not that I am aware of. There are some listed in the wiki under e-book stores near the bottom but there is not a dedicated page but of course it is a wiki so there is no reason there couldn't be. There is also a page on a Unified ebook search engine.

Search Engine seeker

CALIBRE has a feature where you enter the book name and it will conduct a massive search covering Google Books, Sony, KOBO, Amazon, B&N, Waterstones, and many others. There is a list from which you can select where to search. It is worth looking at since it will come up with a list that allows you to connect to the site where it is for sale or , not sure about this, which library. I hope this answers the question I think is being asked.

Thanks in advance!

EBOOK Finder:

http://www.moreofit.com/

I just discovered this website which list ebook sources [500] at a time. Just enter the url of your favorite ebook website and "moreofit" will provide a list of up to 500 similar websites. The list can then be narrowed by many different sub-categories. I believe this will be a great resource.

Yes but what condition are their covers in ?

Personally I consider only those ebooks that are in "as new" condition no dog eared pages or torn covers !

It sounds unlikely, I know, but there is in fact one reputable ebook publisher/vendor that does allow you to legally resell their ebooks.

My favourite tech ebookstore, O'Reilly (http://oreilly.com) have an explicit statement to that effect...

"Resale: If you buy an O'Reilly ebook, when you are done with it you may resell it, provided that you do not retain any copies of the book after you sell it."

Interesting... I've not noticed that before. I know if you buy one of their physical books, you can register it and pay $5 to upgrade to the eBook. They even encourage you to "recycle" the physical copy by donating it to a library. I've bought a number of books directly from them and admire their policies (including DRM free and multiple formats).
