The Lowdown: E-commerce site offering used, rare and out-of-print books
Awesomeness: Carries 85 million books from 5,000+ independent bookstores

Biblio offers more than 85 million used, rare and out-of-print books online. This company has found the perfect balance between buyers and sellers, always providing value and service. And Biblio believes strongly in a triple bottom line. When their staff isn’t busy helping small business owners in some 45 countries get the resources to grow their businesses or building community libraries in rural villages of South America (they’ve built 11 since 2004), you might see them donating thousands of books to local underprivileged children, prison inmates, homeless shelters… you name it. Meanwhile, Biblio collaborates with the world’s finest booksellers to cultivate a truly remarkable collection for readers everywhere.
