Lost Continent Books

Mapping the Terrain of Used and Rare Books


Bookfinder is a comprehensive search which covers several different online booksellers.  The advanced search feature is very useful for narrowing down the search for the most specific of items.

Advanced Book Exchange has an advanced search feature similar to that of Book Finder.  While it has slightly less depth of search than Bookfinder ABE also hosts online book shops and blogs.

Firsts Magazine is the self proclaimed Book Collectors Magazine.  Each issue focuses on finding, identifying, and pricing rare first editions, and features firsts and rare editions of specific authors.  An indispensable resource.

Ebay has a Quick Guide to Grading Books which is a useful quick reference

Goodreads is an excellent forum to connect with other readers, read – and write – reviews, get suggestions for further reading, and so much more. A truly impressive network.

Amazon Pricecheck is an app for IPhone and Android which allows you to look up items and compare them to existing listings on Amazon.  Includes a bar code scanner, voice activated scanner, picture scanner, and text look up.  Indispensable and free.
