Where does everyone buy there chess books? I just by at one of two stores in my country which is only about 1 hours drive away. I had a look at amazon but they dont appear to have that wide a range of books. Is there online chess store that is world wide or has a lot of books as my local store doesn't have all of them. Where do you buy your books from?

Embarassment of riches My search engine threw up 526,000 links under the keywords "chess books", so I find your question somewhat puzzling.

froogle.google.com is a good search engine if you want to buy just about anything

I usually look at amazon.com, as they have also used books for sale on there a lot of the time, and you can get some of them quite cheap.

the best The best ive experienced so far is chesscafe. And the reason is they deliver so fast. I ordered three books from uscf internet and they came one every week. Apparently they weren't in stock. Chesscafe has delivered in 2-3 business days. Amazon is good, they have used books, which has been pointed out, but those used books take weeks to arrive.

Books... Barnes and Nobles or any other local book stores... And the Bay Area book stores when I'm competing...

Right Here on Gameknot... If you go to More Options on the main menu and then at the top of the list is 'chess books'. Mike has listed over 200 of the best chess books and each link will take you right to the page at Amazon where you can make the actual purchase. This is most convienent but the other posts are also good ways to search.

In the UK London Chess Centre (www.chesscenter.com/) offers good choice but over the years I have found their service to be poor (always arrives but always late and they have a poor tracking capbility in my view so cannot tell you where your order is in the queue etc)

Better I have found and my number one choice now is British Chess Magazine www.bcmchess.co.uk/ Again, well organised site and, more often than not, my orders arrive next day. Brilliant!!

to aggropolis What are you telling us that you are a thief as well as a cheater? you said you steal your books from library or closed bookstore.where do you steal your chess programs that you cheat with?

badjessie You will soon find out that aggropolis often says things just to upset people. More often than not, it's better just to ignore him -- though sometimes he does make a good point.

But otherwise: Don't feed the troll! :-)

Books... The neat thing about Barnes and Nobles is that they have seats and table to which you can sit and read at... This way you can read your book to see if it's actually one you would like to obtain for your personal library... I am often seen with a few books at a table inside the book store with my chess men set up on my vinyl chess mat...

There are many awesome chess books out there in the world today... But unfortunately there are a few bad ones as well... This way I can sort out the bad from the good... One advantage of shopping off line... And one good advantage of shopping at Barnes and Nobles...

Don't shop at Barnes and Nobles!!! Read the books their, see what they are like, etc, But DON"T BUY THEM!! Barnes and Nobles always has the very highest prices!
brobishkin 43 ( +1 | -1 )
Hmmm... I have always found Barnes and Nobles prices competitive... Sometimes higher and sometimes lower... In fact I purchased Laszlo Polgar's book on chess "5334 Problems, combinations, and Games" for $4.98... Can you beat that?...

Tulkos is either full of rubbish, or the biggest penny pusher alive today... "Very High Prices"?... And how many food stores do you shop at while obtaining your groceries?...
