Amazon Vendors

Where is the place you can shop for cheap school books? Ebay & Amazon vendors, of course. I do not mind buying used books for cheap prices. But getting a book ordered with missing pages is a big "no" for me. Moreover, describing the book in a "very good" condition and receiving them with missing pages is a big "no."

A bunch of liars these vendors are. I can't see what is the name of the store they use on Amazon but the sellers' name is Lhillio. I bought "Exercises in English: Grammar for Life : Level H" as a filler for my soon 8th grader and 20 first pages are missing. I wrote a review but the latest review this seller have was 2011, which are all 5/5. There are no latest review for this seller and I knew why.

I am very happy with the delivery ( I will give them 5/5 on that) but missing pages, I gave them 2/5. The book is in very good condition none the less.

I also ordered K12 Algebra 1 - A Reference Guide and Problem Sets from Tonys Prices on May 7th.  Shipping estimation by Amazon (I think) was May 8 or 9. And the estimated delivery is schedule for May 14 to 30. However, until today the item is NOT mark shipped yet. I think they are waiting until the last minute to mail the darn book. I already received the student pages a week ago and my soon 8th grader already started without the problem book. I'm hoping they are lazy updating the ordered and the book might be already making its way here.

Last year I bought Classic for young readers for my 2nd grader this year, but the seller gave me the wrong grade level. They refunded my money but did not asked for the wrong book to sent back. I lost the shipping cost on that one and have extra book that I don't need.

Around this summer, I will be putting some kinder, 1st & 2nd grader book/curriculum ready for ebay. I think I will sell them by subjects. I don't want to separate the reading books that goes along with the lessons. I will probably not going the get much because they are all used, but the buyers will have to pay for the shipping.
