Just thought I would share that I've had great luck with  They
have provided superior customer service, rushing books to me as soon as they
are available, sometimes within days, and sending confirming e-mail.  They
also have sent me thank-you gifts just for ordering (a mouse pad in one case,
a refrigerator magnet in another).  You can also find reviews of books you're
thinking about buying, as well as lists of similar books you might like.  I
don't think anything will replace the physical bookstore if you want to
browse, see what's on sale, etc., or buy something quick on your way home -
but for harder-to-find books, I think Amazon is your best bet.  Smaller or
used bookstores can also carry books that the big superstores don't waste
their time on - older books, for example, or more obscure ones.  So it all
depends on your needs.
