Beaverton, OR, April 09, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- “It’s the future of online used book shopping,” says founder and CEO Jim Smith of McKenzie Books, Inc., an internationally recognized online used bookseller. He is referring to their just-released website feature dubbed “BRAIN”, short for “Books Recently Added, Inventory Notice”. BRAIN is a high tech book want list built for frugal, bargain-hunting, used book shoppers who want to spend less time scouring the internet for those great quality used books
at bargain prices. This new tool is exactly what they need to help them fill their bookshelves in these not so fabulous economic times. Bargain hunting bibliophiles have long known that shopping for used books will give them the same content as the new edition while saving half, or more, of the new book price.
BRAIN used book alert
system is a hit for money saving families, time-stressed readers and ecologically aware shoppers who know the value of their time. “Our BRAIN alerts will help them save money, time and energy,” says Smith, who often reminds people that buying used books is environmentally responsible too. The new BRAIN feature at MKZbooks.com delivers up-to-the-minute notices to readers when books they’ve been searching for arrive. Books of all types -- textbooks, romance novels, reference works or children’s books – can be found using BRAIN alerts.
