FYI, if you (or others) on this list haven't seen it yet, I strongly
recommend camelcamelcamel.com as my favorite site on the web, because
it allows me to do Amazon price tracking, and it notifies me if a book
drops to my desired price, and it doesn't cost me anything. It has been
my favorite website for 2 years now. If you buy books from Amazon, you
should know about this site, for sure. You'll wonder what life was like
before you saw it. A guy in Chicago runs this site in his spare time.
I learned about it years ago from the NY Times. Enjoy!
