The Seattle Times (WA), The five hottest out-of-print books (December 28, 2007)

The online book-search engine BookFinder.com periodically delivers updates on the most popular out-of-print books, as indicated by its customers' ordering habits. These lists are fascinating, mostly because they represent a set of books that don't show up on traditional best-seller lists and don't benefit from any marketing campaign. But they remain enduringly popular, mostly by good, old word-of-mouth. Here are the top five most sought-after books of 2007, according to BookFinder.com. To get the top 10, go to its Web site (http://www.bookfinder.com/). 1. 'Once a Runner' by John L. Parker Jr. Published in 1978, this is a "cult classic distance running novel" whose sequel, "Again to Carthage," was released in November. 2. 'Football Scouting Methods' by Steve Belichick. A 1962 'legendary football scout's playbook.' 3. 'Sex' by Madonna. Published in 1992. Still hot. 4. 'Promise Me Tomorrow' by Nora Roberts. A 1984 novel that 'the best-selling romance novelist refuses to reprint.' Hmmm... 5. 'The Lion's Paw' by Robb White. A children's adventure story, first published in 1946.

HetNet (Netherlands), Nieuwe boekenzoekmachine (December 18, 2007)

Met Google kon je al langer boeken doorzoeken via internet. En online boekhandels zijn er ook genoeg. Maar met de nieuwe site Justbooks.nl hoef je niet langer meer uren te surfen als je op zoek bent naar een speciaal exemplaar. Deze zoekmachine is ontwikkeld om boeken op te sporen. Justbooks is een onderdeel van de Amerikaans boekenprijsvergelijker Bookfinder.com. Het bedrijf was al langer in Europa actief, namelijk in Engeland, Duitsland en Frankrijk. Sinds kort is er ook een Nederlandse editie. De site is een combinatie tussen een zoekmachine en een besteldienst. Je kunt zoeken op titel en op schrijver, en aangeven of je op zoek bent naar een speciale druk of een tweedehands exemplaar. Daarnaast moet je ingeven in welke taal het boek is geschreven. Je krijgt een overzicht te zien van aanbieders van het boek. Mocht je het willen bestellen, dan zie je er direct de totaalprijs bij staan, dus inclusief verzendkosten. Dat kan je wat zoekwerk besparen, want alle internetboekwinkels hanteren andere tarieven voor het versturen. Het bedrijf zegt zelf 125 miljoen boeken te kunnen vinden en zoekt daarvoor in de databases van grote bedrijven als Bol, Amazon, maar ook in de 'archieven' van antiquariaten.

The Daily Press (Newport News, VA), Do research to find book's price (December 16, 2007)

The Arizona Daily Star (Tucson), The Smart Collector (December 9, 2007)

Q: How do I have my first-edition 1885 book, the personal memoirs of U.S. Grant, authenticated? Handwritten in the front is a dedication by Grant. (Lance, Tulsa, Okla.) A: Let me guess: The fact that the book is a first edition gives you an idea it might be valuable. Authentication would determine if the written dedication is truly that of the Civil War general, later president. The appraisal is to assess the item and determine value. Let me save you some money. Smart collectors know I always suggest that readers find and research books on abebooks, biblio.com or BookFinder.com.

AE Monthly, A Look at Bookselling with Anirvan Chatterjee of BookFinder.com (December 1, 2007)

BookFinder.com is the leading meta-search site, that is, a search engine which searches book listings on many different websites. From the BookFinder.com search box you can enter a book title or author (or various other descriptive fields) and search dozens of different bookselling sites at once. BookFinder.com will search the three 'A's' (AbeBooks, Alibris and Amazon), midsize sites such as Biblio, Half and Choosebooks, cooperative sites such as ILAB, IOBA and Tom Folio, overseas (for Americans) sites including AntiqBook, Maremagnum, livre-rare-book and Books and Collectibles, along with many others. BookFinder.com began a little over ten years ago as a class project at the University of California at Berkeley by then 19-year-old student Anirvan Chatterjee. He had to write a software program, and Chatterjee was already interested in books. He noted that he spent a lot of time searching for books, 'but I couldn't find everything I wanted.' The result was that he built a search engine that would search multiple bookselling sites at once to simplify the task. Chatterjee discovered that what he had designed was more than just an academic project, but 'something people could use.' So, he put it up online. That was on January 30, 1997, and Chatterjee recalls having around eight sites that were searched at the time. By the way, he got an 'A' on the project.

With Advanced Book Exchange and BookFinder.com, at the click of a button she can have a pretty good idea of whether what she has on her hands is a $1,000 gem or a knockoff that should never have been published.

El Nuevo Herald (Miami, FL), Los estudiantes buscan en internet mejores precios para los libros (November 11, 2007)

Websites como Abe-Books.com, eBay's Half.com y textbooks.com se encuentran entre cientos de 'sitios' donde los estudiantes pueden llevar a cabo su compra de libros de texto en la internet, en ocasiones gastando menos de la mitad de lo que invertirian en la libreria de la escuela. La ventaja de comprar online es un costo mas bajo y una mayor disponibilidad de un libro de texto determinado, dijo Anirvan Chatterjee, el fundador de BookFinder.com, un 'sitio' que busca mas de 125 millones de libros entre mas de 80 websites de venta de libros de texto. Chatterjee inicio el 'sitio' en 1997, en respuesta a los altos precios que el estaba pagando por sus libros de texto como estudiante en la Universidad de California-Berkeley. 'El costo es un asunto importante para los estudiantes, y con el precio de los libros de los libros de texto en aumento, eso no va a mejorar', dijo Chatterjee. BookFinder.com le permite a los estudiantes buscar libros de texto por autor, titulo o por el International Standard Book Number (ISBN). Busca todos los resultados equivalentes en varios 'sites' de compra de libros de texto, enumerandolos desde el mas barato hasta el mas caro. Una ventaja adicional del ''sitio'' es que el precio que se muestra incluye envio y manejo, asi que el estudiante sabe exactamente cuanto tiene que gastar para comprar el libro.

The Miami Herald (FL), Students hit the Web for better book deals (November 11, 2007)

As textbook prices rise, students forgo campus bookstores for online textbook retailers to find cheaper books...Online Advantages: The benefit to shopping online is a lower cost and higher availability of a textbook, said Anirvan Chatterjee, the founder of BookFinder.com, a site that searches more than 125 million books from more than 80 textbook retailer sites. Chatterjee started the site in 1997 in response to the high prices he was paying for his textbooks as a student at the University of California-Berkeley. 'Cost is a huge issue for students, and with textbook prices rising, it isn't getting any better,' Chatterjee said. BookFinder.com allows students to search for textbooks by author, title or International Standard Book Number (ISBN). It searches for the matching results on several textbook-purchasing sites, sorting them from the cheapest to the most expensive. An added perk to the site is that the price shown includes shipping and handling, so students will know exactly what they have to spend to purchase the book.

Associated Content, Find Cheap(er) College Textbooks Online: Your Three Sources for All Your Textbook Needs (October 5, 2007)

BookFinder.com (www.bookfinder.com): The first place you should look. The interface isn't pretty, but it's easy to use and if you know the ISBN you can click advanced search and find your book quickly. If the book is online, Bookfinder will find it! They always list both new and used prices, including s/h charges and search the major online resources (Amazon, Halfprice, etc) and independent retailers or consortiums (ABE.books, etc.). The major drawback is that listers are not required to put the condition of the books -- sometimes you have to weed through a lot of them without knowing what the individual seller's policies are. However, I have never been even slightly unhappy with a book I ordered via their site. Verdict: If you have time, you can find the best prices here.

Business Week, He's Still Beating The House (October 1, 2007)

Ed Thorp's moment is coming--again. Thorp is an investor, mathematician, and crack blackjack player whose winning system got him expelled from Reno casinos in the 1960s. Now his 1967 work, Beat the Market: A Scientific Stock Market System, has been named one of the most sought-after out-of-print books of the past year by BookFinder.com. Beat the Market, which sells for up to $750 on Amazon.com (AMZN), describes his investing system, a precursor of the Black-Scholes formula. Why is the book so hot now? Perhaps it's rising interest in the relation between gambling and investing. Thorp also gets mentions in recent books, including Nassim Nicholas Taleb's best-seller on probability, The Black Swan. Another attention-getter: publicity about a cigarette-pack-size computer co-invented by Thorp in the '60s, to be exhibited next spring at Germany's Heinz Nixdorf computer museum. "It could predict where a roulette ball would land," he says.

About.com: Knitting, Coveted Knitting Titles (September 14, 2007)

BookFinder.com recently released its lists of the most sought-after out-of-print books of the year, and three knitting titles made the top 10 in the crafts, hobbies and how to section: Principles of Knitting by June Hemmons Hiatt. No big surprise there; this huge book is considered a bible of knitting techniques and has been going for hundreds of dollars at Amazon and eBay; Alice Starmore's Aran Knitting. This one is also running about $200 on Amazon, and is a classic book on the history of Aran knitting, debunking the myths while sharing beautiful patterns; and Knitting Lace: A Workshop with Patterns and Projects by Susanna Lewis. Another cherished guide to a popular knitting technique, this book is technical but useful for knitters of all skill levels. I've seen it going for as 'little' as $200 or as much as $500. As a person who has worked in publishing, I know that books are taken out of print for lots of different reasons, and that a lot of books remain popular and fetch high prices when there are no new copies available. The point of this post isn't to rile people up about publishers who don't understand how many of us would buy these books if we could, or to rehash rumors (all unsubstantiated, as far as I can tell) that any of these books are going to be reprinted soon.

The Guardian (United Kingdom), 'Guy books' are most coveted rarities (September 13, 2007)

The Great Tool Emporium and Cab Forward: the Story of the Southern Pacific Articulated Locomotives may sound like candidates for the Oddest Title award. In fact, perhaps surprisingly, they are some of the most sought after books in the United States. They appear on a list of in-demand titles requested on BookFinder.com, a 10-year-old comparison search engine for buying used, rare and out-of-print books online. Its annual report tracks the most requested out-of-print titles in the US from an inventory of 125m titles. The Great Tool Emporium, described as 'a pictorial extravaganza of tools', is just one of a number of what BookFinder.com calls 'guy books' to dominate the lists. Also featured are The Book of Bond; or, Every Man His Own 007 by Kingsley Amis, Hell, I Was There! by the rancher, big game hunter and firearms innovator Elmer Keith, and Football Scouting Methods by Steve Belichick. As a counterbalance to the testosterone, also sought after are The Principles of Knitting, Knitting Lace and I Do: Achieving your Dream Wedding by Jessica Simpson. Madonna tops the arts and music list with her 1992 photobook, Sex, while the biography list shows a hunger for works about boxer Rubin Carter, singer Johnny Cash and the British occultist Aleister Crowley. The most searched- for fiction titles range from the relatively recent but out-of-print - Nora Roberts' bodice-ripper Promise Me Tomorrow - to novels by Nancy Mitford (Wigs on the Green) and CS Lewis (The Allegory of Love). There nearest equivalent on such a large scale in the UK is AbeBooks.co.uk, the British branch of the global site which stocks over 100m new, secondhand and out-of-print books.

The Eagle (Washington, DC), Web site offers cheaper text options: BookFinder.com scours Web for best deals, finds alternative editions (September 10, 2007)

At a time of year when many AU [American University] students's wallets are suffering the loss of hundreds of dollars in textbook bills, one Web site, BookFinder.com, could save students money. The site, an online service that searches thousands of booksellers' Web sites, could save an incoming AU freshman with an average schedule more than $550 on textbooks...The Web site searches through all available partner booksellers, from Amazon to 'small mom-and-pop, selling-off-the-kitchen-table shops,' said Anirvan Chatterjee, founder of BookFinder.com. 'We will scour the ends of the earth,' he said. Hilary Ross, a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences, said BookFinder.com sounds like Expedia or Orbitz, Web sites that search the Internet for the cheapest deals on hotels, air travel and car rentals. In addition to searching for the best prices of the current editions of books, the site looks for older editions and international editions from countries like Canada and Malaysia. 'If you're a little bit flexible, there are amazing deals to be found,' Chatterjee said. International editions are almost identical to U.S. editions but may be written with metric rather than English units of measurement or may have thinner pages, according to Chatterjee. He compared the international textbooks to Canadian prescription drugs because the packaging may be different, but the basic product is identical. 'There is usually zero content difference,' he said.

His great lumbering novel Before the Dawn, set right in the Kiso Valley, runs to more than 750 pages in English. This novel is recommended as advance reading.

They pointed to a 'distinctly masculine tone' to this year's list, noting the success of titles like The Book of Bond or Everyman His Own 007 by Kingsley Amis and The Great Tool Emporium by David Manners, although I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding by Jessica Simpson was also a featured title. Books scoring high in particular categories include Sex by Madonna (No. 1 in arts and music); Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People by Tim Reiterman (biography); The Lion's Paw by Robb White (children's); Football Scouting Methods by Steve Belichick (crafts, hobbies, and how-to); Once a Runner by John L. Parker Jr. (fiction); Flash in the Pan: Life and Death of an American Restaurant by David Blum (history); One Way Up by John F. Straubel (science); Rage by Stephen King (science fiction, fantasy, and horror), and Our Harvard by Jeffrey L. Lant, ed. (society and culture.).

ResourceShelf, The BookFinder.com Report 2007 (September 4, 2007)

The Report tracks the most sought-after out-of-print books in America, breaking down demand for popular OOP titles in ten different genres. We know publishing is a man's world, but some of this year's in-demand titles are even more testosterone-driven than usual: Kingsley Amis' The Book of Bond, or Every Man His Own 007; The Great Tool Emporium, a coffee-table 'pictorial extravaganza of the tools of yesterday and today'; Hell, I Was There!, the autobiography of big game hunter and firearms innovator Elmer Keith (the creator of the .357 Magnum, among others); Beyond Backpacking by controversial extreme ultralight backpacking advocate Ray Jardine, who suggests leaving behind tents, sleeping bags, and water filtration systems.

Quill & Quire (Canada), Top-selling out-of-print books (September 3, 2007)

Every year, the rare and used books website BookFinder.com releases a bestseller list of out-of-print books, and this year's list has now been unveiled. Some of the highlights are Cameron Crowe's Fast Times at Ridgemont High: A True Story, Jessica Simpson's now forebodingly titled I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding, David Manners' The Great Tool Emporium, which describes itself as 'a pictorial extravaganza of the tools of yesterday and today,' and photographer Larry Clark's too- icky-to-ever-be-printed-again Teenage Lust. You can see the full list -- which has been broken down into several categories here: http:// report.bookfinder.com/2007/.

The Hindu (India), Buy books on the Net (September 2, 2007)

Several fabulous book search engines help you get hold of used, out- of-print, rare and first editions. I've completely changed my mind about browsing for and buying books on the Internet. My lament many columns ago that book browsing and buying on the World Wide Web was fast replacing the actual physical act of being in a bookstore was a typical Luddite response. I had thought then that it could only benefit the book seller/dealer and not the buyer/browser. I could not have been more wrong. I've spent the best part of this year browsing for books on the Net and have come away astonished and excited at the riches in store for a book lover there. It's like a giant bookstore where you can track down and find any book you are looking for -- used, hard to find, backlists of an author's work, out of print, rare and first editions. You are accessing the stocks of thousands of book dealers across the world...Which brings me to 'BookFinder.com': one master search engine that combines ALL the search sites where you can compare price, shipping, condition and variants. It lets you browse every major catalog online, letting you know which of these booksellers are offering the best prices and selections. When you find a book you want, you can buy it directly from the original seller. There are no mark-up fees involved. What particularly interests me about 'BookFinder.com' (which just turned 10) is that it was launched (in 1997) by Anirvan Chatterjee, then a 19-year-old UC Berkeley undergraduate. Chatterjee notes that 'both Newsweek and Money called it one of the two best book sites online.'

The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia), Entertainment Blog: Patrick White under the hammer (September 1, 2007)

A battered copy of Patrick White's rare first novel, Happy Valley (Undercover, August 18) was surprisingly popular on eBay last week. After setting a starting price of $25, its owner, Kaye Mattner, watched with amazement as seven buyers placed 35 bids over nine days. The winning bid was for $303. Better copies of the same British edition, published by George G Harrap in 1939, are priced up to $7295.53 at BookFinder.com.

The Berkshire Eagle (Pittsfield, MA), Model way to save on textbooks (September 1, 2007)

The line of Williams College students that passers-by may notice this coming Wednesday morning, snaking up to the door of 26 Water St. in Williamstown, is always there as school opens, hunting for bargains -- book bargains. With the average student bill for books running $600 a year at Williams, the chance to save can be well worth waiting in line -- for hours if necessary...For those not attending Williams (whose 1914 is not open to the public), an article in last Thursday's New York Times titled, 'Knowledge is Priceless but Textbooks are Not,' directs families to a Web site that makes online shopping for college textbooks easier. BookFinder.com, an umbrella search size that sifts the inventories of thousands of booksellers, has an easy to use textbook search tool, the article says. Enter the title and author and it will let you comparison shop -- without waiting in line.

The Tuscaloosa News (AL), Knowledge Is Priceless but Textbooks Are Not (August 30, 2007)

A BookFinder.com search last week for 'Genki II: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese II' turned up 24 new and used copies, at prices ranging from $20.94 at Amazon.com to $110.62 at Amazon.de. For each of the 24 copies, total price (including shipping) is listed on a single page, along with information about how soon the book will ship. Some sellers offer expedited delivery. Amazon, for instance, offers overnight delivery and discounts of up to 30 percent off on new copies of 200,000 textbooks.

Yahoo! Tech, More Textbook Deals on the Web (August 30, 2007)

I pointed to several discount book sale and trading web sites in this post, but the New York Time's Michelle Slatalla adds more to the list in a humorous, mom-of-a-college-freshman kind of way. As usual, it's a fun read, so check it out. But here are some of the sites she mentions. If you've got college kids, send them the links...BookFinder.com - Search on a book title and this site will compare availability, prices, and shipping costs of books from hundreds of thousands of booksellers worldwide.

The Herald Tribune (Sarasota, FL), Knowledge Is Priceless but Textbooks Are Not (August 30, 2007)

The good news is that there's a new tool this year to make it easier to shop online for textbooks. BookFinder.com, an umbrella search site that sifts through the inventories of hundreds of thousands booksellers worldwide, started a simple, easy-to-use textbook search tool. The way it works: enter a title, I.S.B.N. or author's name in BookFinder.com's textbooks search box to navigate a huge database of 125 million new and used books. You can compare prices, shipping costs and the availability of less expensive editions published overseas

Ocala Star-Banner (FL), Knowledge Is Priceless but Textbooks Are Not (August 30, 2007)

'Our goal is to give students all the options of buying any new or used edition, whether it's published here or for an overseas market, and then let them decide which books are the best deals for them,' said Anirvan Chatterjee, BookFinder.com's founder.

The Ledger (Lakeland FL), Knowledge Is Priceless but Textbooks Are Not (August 30, 2007)

Lifehacker, Find Cheap Textbooks (August 30, 2007)

The NY Times tackles that old September chestnut: where to find discounted textbooks. Suggestions include using online book deal-hunter BookFinder.com, and opting for less-expensive international editions of textbooks.

The New York Times, Knowledge Is Priceless but Textbooks Are Not (August 30, 2007)

With this year's news about the ways some unscrupulous colleges make an extra buck off students' naivete -- from loan officers who accepted lenders' kickbacks to schools that got cash incentives to steer students to expensive study-abroad programs -- I felt it was expedient to warn my daughter about a big expense that looms before her. Textbooks...The good news is that there's a new tool this year to make it easier to shop online for textbooks. BookFinder.com, an umbrella search site that sifts through the inventories of hundreds of thousands booksellers worldwide, started a simple, easy-to-use textbook search tool. The way it works: enter a title, I.S.B.N. or author's name in BookFinder's textbooks search box to navigate a huge database of 125 million new and used books. You can compare prices, shipping costs and the availability of less expensive editions published overseas. Consider, for example, a textbook required for an advanced Japanese course at my daughter's college. A BookFinder search last week for 'Genki II: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese II' turned up 24 new and used copies, at prices ranging from $20.94 at Amazon.com to $110.62 at Amazon.de. For each of the 24 copies, total price (including shipping) is listed on a single page, along with information about how soon the book will ship. Some sellers offer expedited delivery. Amazon, for instance, offers overnight delivery and discounts of up to 30 percent off on new copies of 200,000 textbooks. 'Our goal is to give students all the options of buying any new or used edition, whether it's published here or for an overseas market, and then let them decide which books are the best deals for them,' said Anirvan Chatterjee, BookFinder.com's founder. There are some caveats. My daughter, like a lot of freshmen, won't know which textbooks she needs to buy until she completes registration on the eve of starting classes; some books she may need immediately. And some instructors may require the newest American editions of textbooks. 'But in most cases, most international editions published for Canada, the Philippines, Malaysia and India are really similar to the U.S. versions,' Mr. Chatterjee said. 'So we've been working on really boosting our inventory of those books, adding 18 to 20 new international partners this year.'

The Book Standard, BookFinder Announces Top Out-of-Print Books (August 30, 2007)

BookFinder.com, the online comparison search engine for new, rare and used books, has announced its annual out-of-print bestseller lists, with some familiar names, like Madonna's Sex, and some ironic titles, like Jessica Simpson's I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding making appearances. The website breaks the books down into categories like arts and music, popular science and technology, biography and more. Some of the top in-demand out-of-print books include The Book of Bond, or Every Man His Own 007, by Sir Kingsley Amis, writing as Lt. Col. William 'Bill' Tanner (Mysteries/Thrillers), The Lion's Paw, by Rob White (Children's), Football Scouting Methods, by Steve Belichick (Crafts, Hobbies and How-Tos), Flash in the Pan: Life and Death of an American Restaurant, by David Blum (History) and Once a Runner: A Novel, by John L. Parker, Jr. (Fiction and Literature). The full list of top out-of-print books can be found online. 'From 98 to 99 percent of all books ever published are now out-of-print, so they don't show up in traditional bestseller lists,' said Anirvan Chatterjee, BookFinder.com founder. 'Without big marketing budgets behind them, these books have been getting buzz the old-fashioned way: reader word of mouth.'

The Sun-News (Las Cruces, NM), Cost of textbooks adds to college students' load (August 20, 2007)

The beginning of the fall semester can be stressful for college students and parents as they seem to continuously turn over money for tuition, fees, room and board, and one sore spot for many - textbooks. Many students wish they could spend their savings from summer jobs or money from their parents on fun items, such as clothes and nights out with reunited college friends. Instead, many have to budget - and even take out loans - to pay for college textbooks, which can cost hundreds of dollars per semester...Try to search in search engines that specializes in book searches, like...BookFinder.com or similar. They compare prices from different online vendors.

The Intelligencer Journal (Lancaster, PA), Beating the bookstore odds (August 20, 2007)

The chain book store experience of Borders and Barnes & Noble is an expensive world away from another kind of bookstore, where the hours may not be as convenient and the selections not as up to date, but publishers don't pay competitive rates for the display space either. Every book is an equal on the shelves of used, rare and out-of-print booksellers -- a quiet presence with thousands of books on hand to satisfy any booklover's cravings...The owners also sell and source books on the Internet, citing BookFinder.com as a good place to look for hard-to-find titles.

Sympatico-MSN Finance (Canada), Student finances 101: A lesson in dollars and cents (August 10, 2007)

Students can bank on shelling out an average of $12,000 for tuition, and room and board at a Canadian university this year. But there's another $3,000 likely to be spent on textbooks, supplies, transportation and "other." So, how do you keep freshmen from draining their bank account before Thanksgiving? Get the facts. Heading off to university can be a great money management experience for both student and parents. Your first instinct may be to create a detailed budget before you wave goodbye, but this way you're almost sure to leave some key things out. For most kids, it's the first time that they'll be handling money without direct parental supervision. So, let them figure it out...Pick up used books. Buying used books is an established practice, and Internet sites like Half.com and BookFinder.com have made it much easier to skip the campus bookstore.

Laptop Magazine, Ten Web Sites Guaranteed to Make Your School Semester Easier (July 20, 2007)

There are more productivity websites crowding the Internet than there are credit card vendors swarming around campus offering free T-shirts and koozies for your signature. We sorted through the myraid to-do sites, grade managers, and personal calendars to find the sites that will help you stay on top of your semester. So when Facebook and craigslist don't do exactly what you need, and you're sick of using your Gmail account to store assignments, notes, and lists, use these sites to manage your time, reduce your stress, save some cash, and clear your schedule for something fun. Best Site to Buy Textbooks, Cheap. A trip to the campus bookstore can end up exceding the cost of a month's rent, but searching countless bookselling websites is a tedious process.

You can use BookFinder.com to find the best deals for non-academic books, too.

Here in the Newsweek Test Kitchen, we came up with a random list of examples through the highly unscientific method of asking ourselves and our friends for examples. There's nothing here that's going to change your life, but a lot that made us smile and in nearly every case we were glad we'd thought to ask the question...Great Books: BookFinder.com searches online book sites for new and used titles, including Abebooks, Alibris and Amazon, and lists the results by price, low to high.

Internet Retailer Magazine, A sea of shoppers. Spearfishing vs. casting a wide net: Search marketers try out niche search engines (June 2007)

Even Amazon participates in vertical search on BookFinder.com, which populates its engine with data feeds and other methods of gathering product content. The vertical engine collects a fee on sales from the traffic it drives to retailers. But why does Amazon, whose own URL is hands-down the best-known among online book buyers, need a niche engine such as BookFinder.com? 'Nobody doesn't want more sales. Working with BookFinder.com is a great way for booksellers to get incremental sales they would not have been able to get from another source,' says BookFinder.com founder and CEO Anivran Chatterjee. Besides having a broad base that includes market segments such as textbook buyers and highend collectors who might not look first on a general engine, BookFinder.com's engine has large base of international users. 'We manage to channel a lot of international sales to our American booksellers, and vice versa,' Chatterjee says.

micro PRATIQUE (France), La version français du plus grand moteur de recherche de livres, BookFinder.com, débarque sous le nom de JustBooks. (May 19, 2007)

Les bibliophiles, mais aussi les simples lecteurs, le savent bien le Web a révolutionné la recherche de livres. Ce qui pouvait prendre des mois à fouiller dans les arrière-boutiques des libraires ou dans les bacs des bouquinistes se résout désormais parfois en quèlques clics (le plaisir de l'attente en moins, l'efficacité en plus), par exemple sur Abebooks qui fédère un réseau de plusieurs milliers de libraires dans le monde entier. Un nouvel outil arrive sur le Web : JustBooks.fr, version française de BookFinder.com, le plus grand moteur de recherche de livres aux Etats-Unis. JustBooks est un méta-moteur qui effectue des recherches dans les bases des plus importants vendeurs en ligne (Abebooks donc, Amazon, Fnac.net, Alapage, PnceMinister, Chapitre.com) soit, selon le site, "plus de 125 millions d'ouvrages neufs, d'occasion et anciens proposés par des vendeurs de 50 pays". Il est dommage qu'eBay ne soit pas (encore ?) adresse par JustBooks. L'interface, identique à celle de BookFinder, est très simple : un champ de saisie pour l'auteur, un autre pour le titre de l'ouvrage et quèlques critères facultatifs (neuf ou occasion, édition originale, etc.) La consultation de l'index prend quèlques dizaines desecondes avant que les résultats ne soient affiches sur deux colonnes : neuf et occasion. Les frais de port sont inclus dans les prix affichés, un point d'autant plus important que les libraires recensés sont situés dans le monde entier.

The Channel News (TomGreen.com), Where Is Who's Who In The Zoo? (May 18, 2007)

Who's Who In The Zoo is a great book filled with hundreds of animals in it, some of them now extinct. Now the book itself is on the endangered species list as every copy available on the internet is slowly finding it's way to the top of Tom's desk...On that note, here's a couple of places you can find it. Abebooks has a nice database with a couple of copies listed. BookFinder.com has the same. You can also do a search on Alibris and can find one or two pop up. Remember to double check that you've found right one! They can usually be found for $20 to $50 US dollars on these sites. Try to stay away from Ebay, some have been going for over $100 recently.

Le comparateur racheté en 2005 par la société canadienne AbeBooks, intègre le prix du livre et les frais de port.

Nowhere is the long tail more obvious than in online bookselling, as we'll see when we visit with today's guest. Anirvan Chatterjee developed the core BookFinder.com technology in 1997 as a class project when he was a student at the University of California, Berkeley.

Decorative Arts: Collecting: Still, as well done as it is, Addall.com and BookFinder.com have rendered most price guides superfluous and used book dealers do not respect antique dealer guides for their superficiality.

The Times (London) (United Kingdom), The Click (March 28, 2007)

The Bookseller (United Kingdom), BookFinder.com: Eliminating obscurity (March 2, 2007)

While still in college, then 19-year-old Anirvan Chatterjee came up with the idea for BookFinder.com, the online price comparison service for books that is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. The site searches through more than 125 million books from more than 100,000 booksellers in several countries, and the company is still growing...Bookseller: What are some of your goals now that you've been around for 10 years? What are you looking forward to doing in the future? Chatterjee: 'We're getting really serious about helping users who are not primarily in the United States. We have a German site and a British site and we have a French and Italian site on the way. Over the next couple of years, that's one of the biggest things we're going to be doing, really taking BookFinder.com internationally. And bringing the BookFinder.com experience to more people.'

The list predictably contains celebrity tomes, including Suzanne Somers' attempt at poetry, but there are surprises and intriguing choices here (helicopter development?).

NextStudent, Top Web Tools for College Students (February 15, 2007)

I have been in college almost three years now and have been using many different Web tools that saved me time, helped me learn more and, most importantly, did not cost a penny. Here are 10 tools that I recommend for every college student: 1) BookFinder.com: Over a year you can end up spending thousands of dollars on books. I am one of those poor students who struggles for money, so the less I pay for books, the better. BookFinder.com is a neat site/tool that allows you to compare prices on more than 125 million books for sale from thousands of sellers. So there's no need to go to Amazon, Half.com and all the other book sites when BookFinder.com can search them for you.

The Alameda Newspaper Group (The Oakland Tribune, The Alameda Times-Star, The Daily Review, The Vallejo Times-Herald, The Tri-Valley Herald, The Argus, The San Mateo County Times), Blue Rectangle Aims to Entice Book Buyers with Online Video Reviews (February 12, 2007)

Anirvan Chatterjee, a founder of Berkeley-based BookFinder.com, said Blue Rectangle is useful to students who want to sell back their textbooks. 'In a lot of cases, a student buys a textbook from the campus bookstore at UC Berkeley, but cannot necessarily sell it back to the bookstore the next year,' he said. 'But they might be able to sell it to (another campus bookstore) if they had an intermediary like Blue Rectangle.' However, Chatterjee, whose Web site searches for books and compares the prices of different vendors, was ambivalent about the addition of video reviews. 'It's fine for a couple of books, but what percentage of the overall inventory has that feature available?' he asked.

AuctionBytes, BookFinder Search Site Turns Ten, Shares Strategy (February 9, 2007)

BookFinder.com, a "comparison-shopping search engine" for books, issued a press release announcing its 10-year anniversary.

In that time, the number of books available for sale has grown from 5 million to over 125 million. The press release includes an interview with the founders, and it contains some great insight into how a small company (just four people) got (and continues to be) successful.

Green Valley News and Sun (AZ), Genealogy Today: You Can Never Have Too Many Books (January 27, 2007)

One of my favorite sources is BookFinder.com. A search engine shared by thousands of used book sellers all over the U.S., if BookFinder.com can't find a book it probably isn't available. The used books are rated as to quality, and I find many of the used books I've purchased appear to be brand new. I've ordered from sellers in New York, California and many points in between, even one who turned out to be in Green Valley. Orders are processed quickly and generally received within two weeks.

The Arizona Republic (Phoenix), Obsession with 'Oz' author begins after random buy (January 27, 2007)

Shapiro, 60, is obsessed with a long-dead author of children's books who has taken over his life, and he wants this story to attract other people to his obsession because he has no idea what to do with the fruits of his obsession...He says he now owns two first-edition, first-state books. (Those 'first-state' books were created on the first run of the presses before corrections were made.) A mint- condition first-edition, first-state Wonderful Wizard of Oz book has a $35,000 to $45,000 price tag at AbeBooks and BookFinder.com.

Internet is boon to book collectors. The Internet can inform you on just about anything these days.

The Web site features a good search engine that allows you to search by author or title and narrow the search to new, rare and out-of-print, first editions or signed. A search for a first edition 'A Christmas Carol,' by Charles Dickens, for instance, came up with several matches, including one copy selling for little more than $7,500.

The Daily Iowan (University of Iowa, Iowa City), Untangling the web of textbook season (January 19, 2007)

With Internet options expanding, many are turning to such websites as eBay's half.com and amazon.com to buy and sell their texts. These websites, along with hundreds of knockoffs, allow people to post their books for sale and search databases of other users' posts for purchases. The website then takes a small percentage of the sale for profit. BookFinder.com, a search service founded in 1997 as a class project by a University of California-Berkeley student, combs 100 million books for sale by more than 100,000 online booksellers in 50 different countries. The results show the best price available, and many UI students are beginning to capitalize on the opportunity.

The Daily News-Miner (Fairbanks, AK), Make 2007 Your Year for Spending Less and Saving More (January 14, 2007)

If you'd like to make 2007 your year for getting rich quick, well I'm afraid I can't help you there.

The Telegram & Gazette (Worcester, MA), Old Cookbooks in Demand (January 10, 2007)

For 10 years, Hotson haunted secondhand-book stores and contemplated a massive photocopying project...At BookFinder.com, the perennial best-selling cookbook is 'A Treasury of Great Recipes,' first published in 1965 by Vincent and Mary Price (yes, that Vincent Price). It's a padded, imitation leather, gilt-stamped collection of luxurious recipes from the world's past pleasure palaces, most of them long gone -- like chicken in champagne sauce from Le Pavillon in Manhattan, which closed in 1972.

[RADIO] Morning Edition (NPR), 'Football Scouting' Book Finds New Fans (January 5, 2007)

It is the brisk business being done by an old football book. The book comes from 1963. It does not have the sexiest title: 'Football Scouting Methods.' BookFinder.com says it came out of nowhere. The rag is its second most sought after but out-of-print book in 2006. It ranked just behind Madonna's old book, which does have a sexy title: 'Sex'. BookFinder.com's Charlie Hsu chalks up the football book's success to the author's son, Bill Belichick, who's now coach of the hugely successful New England Patriots. 'The book has a very practical scouting method. It's about how to scout for people, how to scout for talent, how to set up your team, how to set up your plays. How to be your own coach. How to be your own Bill Belichick.' The book's author is Steve Belichick. He died in late 2005 before he could see the newfound popularity of his work, but after he'd seen his son win a third Super Bowl
