Buying reference / learning / technical books

I have recently found myself needing to get hold of reference books on various topics (web design, Adobe products, digital art, music recording). I'm using my library as much as I can but their selection is limited and often out of date.

The price of many of these books is pretty high (usually £15-£25 each), even when trying to buy second hand. Is there any way to pick up some of these things at more sensible prices?

Thanks.

You could try the Amazon market place if you are ok with slightly older versions (which is what libraries tend to have anyway).

I recently got a (massive) PHP book for les than £3!

They quite often have a price of a few pence with £2.74 postage from what I've noticed.
