This was a great help! I did find one gem that I have been looking for.
Wondering if anyone might any updates to add to this thread?

Currently, one of my favorite places to buy books is Dons Magic & Books ( https://usedmagic.myshopify.com/ ). Since January 1st of this year I have purchase 37 books from there. The last 3 were the Ireland's Yearbook Reader 3 volume set. That is all 31 issues of Irelands Yearbook 1934-1970 (compiled in 3 comb bound books ) for $90.00 with free shipping. I also buy DVDs from him. I got a Great deal on a Full set ( 6 cases ) of The Doctor Is In!-New Coin Magic of Dr. Sawa Vols. 1-6 ( Still Sealed ) for $30.00 shipped. Occasionally, I will email Don and ask if he has or can get a book and so far he has come though for me. Sadly, his free media rate is going to come to an end on June 1. The bright side is that he has just been charging the Actual postage he pays and refunding the difference. He has over 1600 used books available. P.S.I started shopping his site while searching for a booklet that sold for $22.00 on feabay. His site showed up and he had it for $5.00 with cheap shipping. I check his site out regularly.
Happy shopping.........

This should probably be on the e-book section but if youre looking for digitized magic books try https://www.lybrary.com/

Lybrary has tons of hard to find books in e-book format. Its a wonderful site.

As others have pointed out ebay and amazon are pricey so I usually buy used books from members of the Café.

Eventually I'll have enough posts to see the book section on the Café here. I've seen some decent prices on Facebook, but have been apprehensive about purchasing from there.

It's a lot of the same people, and this place has no protection either. So...

We put out near weekly lists of used books and such related to magic and allied arts. And the prices are reduced by 10% each week an item goes unsold. Our website is available at www.bradburybooks.com, but essentially it is late 20th Century style. If interested just email me (dan@bradburybooks.com) and I will add you to our list. We pride ourselves on helping to recirculate magic book collections to the folks that want them--and at reasonable prices. Hope to hear from you if interested. We are in the U.S. (Kansas City), but will ship internationally. Best to all. - Dan

I have bought a number of books from Dan. His operation is first class all the way.

If you use the protections from PayPal, you are going to be OK 99%+. I have bought and sold A LOT of books on there with ZERO issues. Just look for the people who post frequently.

That said, the forum is MUCH less active than it was 6 months ago.
