I would be interested to hear if anyone has tried buying second hand books through Amazon and how they found the experience. I am probably a bit late in asking as I have gone ahead and ordered a couple of books that I read as a young man (yes I know - long time!). Both books left an impression on my youthful thinking and I am keen to see what I think of them now. Both are out of print. They are: Covenant With Death by John Harris About a Pals Bn in WW1 and HMS Leviathan by John Winton, About a new Commander (2IC) joining an Aircraft carrier and trying to get the ship functioning and working together. Although I am not of a nautical bent (or even bent), the story about trying to bring together the different branches and departments for the good of the ship and not their individual disciplines, especially trying to get the air wing to appreciate that they were actually in the RN and not RN being just a part of the air wing Anyhoo, I will let you know the condition of the books and if I find I f2f a good way to get out of print books.
