as for bookstore queries...i'm not really sure. it's probably on the bookstore site somewhere? you could probably find someone here to answer it, though. the bookstore's pretty predictable, heehee.

I need the ISBN number for a book called Muhammed... I searched it on Amazon and got, oh, five trillion results. Also, the 3rd edition of a book that's listed doesn't seem to exist... and another book I can't find anywhere.

Go half.com. I'm at around $140 on 8 books... which is truly awesome. But yeah, good point about page numbering.
