www.half.com is very similar to the used section of Amazon.

You are buying directly from individuals, who may or may not follow through. My sister purchased many textbooks from half for her recent graduate degree. They were often editions from other countries but that was good enough for her.

There's a board here at TMF about Selling Books Online with many Half sellers who I'm sure could answer any questions you might have:

I go first to half.com and bookcloseout.com for any books I need (fiction or nonfiction). There's a whole world of book buying choices that wasn't around when I was in college.
