Finding Books That Are Out Of Print

Avid readers will tell you, you can never really know a book until you own a copy. This is why people who love to read often have extensive libraries. It’s always fun to hunt down a copy of a new edition but even more so with older editions. Either way, purchasing your own copy can be thrilling. But, what if your book is currently out of print? Being out of print means the original publisher is not currently printing any more copies of the book. This can make certain books very hard to find. So, what can you do ?  Here are a few ways to help with the search…..

Check Second Hand Stores

This is likely the hardest method since it involves physically checking the shelves of stores. But these are often the best places to find old books. Another added benefit of finding the book your looking for in a second-hand store is the price will usually be much more reasonable.

Go Directly To The Publisher

Being out of print just means no new copies are being made by the same publisher. This often happens because the current print does not sell as well as expected. So publishers will be left with a number of copies on their hands that they can’t get rid of. These copies can usually be bought directly from the publisher.

Do Some Research

If there were copyright issues, or perhaps the publisher went out of business, another publisher could essentially republish the book as a new edition. This information would be easy to find with a simple online search of your title.

Find A Copy Online

Whether this is through a site like Amazon or through a resale site like eBay, sometimes you can find used copies of the book you are looking for online. Many books are found through this method and it is probably the easiest method, however, can be costly depending on postage and availability etc….
