Link: Booko

This site has been around for awhile now, but I was recently reminded of it when a colleague was asking for the best place to buy books online for Australia; Booko is a very simple and easy to use price comparison for purchasing books in Australia. The search engine will retrieve results from over 30 common online booksellers — including Amazon, Fishpond, The Nile, Booktopia, Borders, QBD, The Co-op, and many more — and order the results based on the price of the book and the estimated delivery cost.
