I need a new scorepad soon, and I'm not going to be attending any major events with a book vendor for a few months, so I want to mail order one. I was also thinking of buying a particular chess book, so I figured I'd buy them together to combine the shipping. Unfortunately, amazon.com doesn't carry chess scorebooks, and the two chess sales sites I've tired (the official USCF site and chesshouse.com) don't have the book I want, which is surprising, since it's a recent and popular book.So does anyone have any recommendations for other online US chess vendors I could try?--Fromper
Fromper, check www.wholesalechess.com. I've placed several orders through them and been satisfied with the pricing, accurate descriptions, and delivery time.
That one doesn't have the book I want, either. Odd that it's so hard to find a popular, recent book at chess sites, but amazon.com has it in stock. If amazon sold scorebooks, I'd buy from them.
What book are you looking for?
"A Spanish Repertoire for Black" by Marin.
Check out Silman's site and his store. He is the licensed US distributor for Quality Chess publishing and usually has their goodies long before other web portals. Many chess sites link to his store front, but if you prefer to surf, just Google away and you will be there in moments.
