AwesomeBooks Comment on the Popularity of Used Books

Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, (27th February, 2012) – AwesomeBooks, a leading online retailer of new and used books, recently commented on the popularity of second hand books in the marketplace.

Used books are as popular as ever nowadays, as many people are looking for cheaper alternatives to new books and e-books. The popularity of new books has declined within the last 18 months and the recession has undoubtedly resulted in the sales increase for used paperback and hardback books. Another reason for the rise could be due to students searching for used textbooks instead of buying new and more expensive editions.

AwesomeBooks recently commented on the popularity of cheap, used books in the market place and how they aim to cater to the growing demand. As one of the leading book providers in the UK, AwesomeBooks is dedicated to providing their customers with a broad selection of new and used books for a variety of genres, including fantasy, food and drink, poetry, drama, religion, horror and children’s books, plus more.

A spokesperson for AwesomeBooks commented: “While e-books are growing in popularity, they are still yet to rival print and many people are opting for second hand books over new paperbacks and hardbacks in this tough economic climate. We understand that customers will want value-for-money when purchasing books online, which is why we offer high quality used books which are competitively priced with our industry rivals.”
