    I would say that yes it is safe to buy used text books online. I know in the past I have purchased some from amazon.com and it appears that textbooks.com is also a good legit place to buy books (used and new) online.

    Yes, assuming you buy from a reputable business. For some basics on buying on-line see: http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/finances/shopping_us.aspx

    There are thousands of book sellers on-line.

    I suggest using http://www.google.com/products to search for the book you want to buy, and then pick a store with a high seller rating.

    If you want to browse a specific on-line store check out:
