I personally buy my books from technical book sellers. I'll use Aamzon to look and see what the best sellers are, Then I check and I usually go with Nerdbooks since they are in Dallas, Tx and I'm in Fort Worth. I can usually get books delivered to my door next day usuing regular shipping. Also if you need something a little older I'd check I can usually find older books for something like $3 or $4. (Got the K&R book for like 20 bucks)I find that amazon and barnes are a little pricey, especially for a college student.
