Where can I purchase used school textbooks if we would like extra copies?

There are many websites where you can purchase used textbooks at a reasonable price. The following sites are great places to try: www.valorebooks.com, www.amazon.com, www.half.com, www.textbooks.com, and www.directtextbook.com.
