Hi Dean and All,
That`s quite a dif! I use http://www.acses.com for price comparisons.
It`s a great site. I like it because it compares 25 dif stores worldwide
and then gives me the total with several kinds of shipping included if I

books that are going to be (or already have been) published and ACSES will
notify you when the volume hits stores in it`s comparion shopping network. I
have one in now for Sharon Vanderlip`s "Collie Compendium".
