Dirty Students

I am about to become a student again (albeit part-time and with no classes).

There are some law books I need to get, but as usual they're mighty expensive.

Are there any decent second-hand book websites that students use for this kind of thing..?

AbeBooks Official Site - New & Secondhand Books, New &Used Textbooks, Rare & Out of Print Books

I have bought a few uni books off of them (2nd hand) and they have been brilliant. They also sell plenty of other books as well.

Oxfam Book Shop on Back Wynd has a lot of things.

I remember going into that second hand bookshop opposite Morrisons once and it was full of porn. Basically a whole wall of it. There is a bookshop still there but I don't think it sells scud- ags any more. I've only looked in the window like, I haven't been in, so maybe you need to go in and enquire if he has any "books about jazz".

I guess jazz mags are collectors items now. They'll probably be on Antiques Roadshow soon. Teenagers today don't know they're born with the internet. In my day finding a dog-eared copy of Club International down at the railway line was like winning Euromillions.

I wholeheartedly agree with that statement.

True story

When i was like 8years old we found an old skudder mag down by the railway line where there were old like containers and things.....We all ripped a bit out and stuffed them in our pockets...I looked at mine and to be honest had no idea what it was....As i say stuffed it into my pocket and forgot about it lol.....My mum found it....Turned out the bit i got was a full blown shaven 55year old with the road kill poonany look(This was the 80's shaven poonanys werent invented yet).....My mum was fucking mortified and didnt talk to me properly for weeks.....She musta asked me like 1trilion times where i got it and whom gave it me.

And Amazon do some good study books...And of course fleabay.

/EDIT

and no my mum wasn't so mortified cos it was her poonany.

It was on that premise that I was allowed to keep my collection when I moved in with my girlfriend.

"What are these? Get them out of my house!"

"They're..."

"Ewww, you don't really like that sort of stuff do you?"

"No, they're....."

"Look, if we've got a problem in that area of our relationship we need to talk about it"

"No, no it's not that!"

"Well?!"

"You remember that nest egg I told you about? The stuff I could sell if things got really tough for us......." :]
