So I’m in grad school. Have I written about that? Somehow it’s not as easy to talk about as undergrad, not as fully realized a purpose in my life. Perhaps I’ll write another post about it soon.

ANYway, I had to buy books for this semester. So after comparison shopping on and consulting the cashback prospects at, I decided to shop for the books. This would be my first time shopping Alibris in nearly five years, since a bad experience left me waiting all summer for an older book which arrived in not the greatest condition.

This time, though, I had shipping confirmations from each seller, quick turn times, and decent books. All in all, not unlike the results from or Amazon, with shipping more comparable to the latter (second party sellers’ shipping, not that lovely free super saver shipping).
