'Out of print' has lost its meaning

Rr_500j

I see the phrase from time to time in book reviews.

"It is out of print and difficult to find."

Not.

Reviewers who write stuff like this need to wake up and smell the 21st century.

Here is where you can locate those "out of print and difficult to find" books:

AddALL — www.addall.com/

BookHq — www.bookhq.com/

BookFinder — www.bookfinder.com/

Abebooks — www.abebooks.com/

I've long since lost count of the number of times I've purchased books that were "unobtainable" for reviewers and writers who said as much.

Must be priceless to see their faces when they open the package.

No matter — for me, it's just something I like doing.
