Alternatives to eBay

The policy has been going on for a while, but World Net Daily is reporting it as "breaking news" that eBay prohibits teacher texts for homeschool resellers just like all other teachers.

The policy, which is inclusive of all teachers' texts, was made known recently as those who were auctioning various books watched as their postings were
deleted.
It's unfortunate and maybe with enough pressure they'll reconsider. You can read the details of the policy here. Information to voice your concern is here.

We've never been big eBay users, but we've bought a few items over the years. I can't be too hard on them though. They did connect us with our great grandfather's Civil War Bible last year. (If you haven't read the story, it's a down right miracle.)

In any case, I am looking for a used edition of Saxon Algebra 2. One source recommended by the Common Room was This Little Piggy Stayed Home but they don't have it. Homeschool A to Z and Daryl list some sites. Are there any other reliable online sources for used curriculum that you can recommend?
