If you are a book lover, then you will surely empathize with me when I
say that shopping in book stores, especially the popular ones can be

If you are a book lover, then you will surely empathize with me when I
say that shopping in book stores, especially the popular ones can be
extremely harrowing. Gone are the days when readers had respect for
literature, handled books with precaution and ensured that it remained
spotless for years. An experience in a book store (and God save you if
there is a book sale) is fraught with jostles, chaos and the experience
of never being able to find the right book in the right section. The
reverential Jane Austen’s may be found on the floor of the kids play
section if not amidst Tom Sharp medley of slapstick humor.

To add to it all bookstores, have created special areas where prospective
customers can review a book and then decide to purchase it. Started as a
thoughtful concept, this reading section is a nightmare. Replete with
kids, this area hardly gives you the impression of a place where one
would like to take a few minutes to scan the latest bestseller. And the
icing on the cake is the smudges and smears that these devils leave
behind on the books that you consider precious.

Though feeling the book lends a lot of substance to the final decision of
buying, any book lover would resort to the less invasive method of buying
books on the Internet. If you are looking for an older book or one that
is not for sale or has been approved for re writing, then finding it on
the Internet should be easy. The only small hassle that one may face
while doing so, is the need to scan the search engine results to finally
lay hands on what you started to find. But thankfully that can be done
sitting calmly in the privacy of your home.

To help you with the search process so that you don’t land up with
irrelevant books which are non-bestsellers and science textbooks, here
are a few websites which you may want to explore.
Bibliomania.com is a spirited, user friendly site that connoisseurs of
literature shall find impressive. It has a collection of more than 2,000
books and is segmented by category.

LiteratureOnline.com gives you access to classics, The Bible and almost
all Shakespearean works.

Project Gutenberg include more than 6000 books that have been scanned
into it's database.

WiredforBooks.com has the additional benefit of showcasing poetry,
oratories, and audio versions of literature.

Equipped with this information you shall find that making searches for
books online whether it be for purchase or reading the free eBooks, you
shall find it easier to trace what you are looking for.
