Out of Print Books

We have all had the situation arise when we are excited about acquiring a book title that we rush out to locate at a nearby library or purchase at a bookstore only to discover it is out of print.
Luckily there are several out of print book dealers that we can use to locate and purchase those hard to find titles. ACQWEB has a list of these companies and their web sites as a starting point in looking for rare or antiquarian books. Give it a try and bookmark the site for future use at http://www.acqweb.org/pubr/rare.html

You'll be glad to know that the Out-of-print book business is still alive. The other night we watched an episode of the TV show Fringe where the acquisition and use of an out of print book was central to the storyline. An out of print book also plays a dominant role in the recent movie Inkheart.
Thanks for the post!
