About Us

Our Story

Bookprice has its humble beginnings in the Computer Science department at Grinnell College. The goal was to create a system that would help us find the cheapest price for any book on the Internet. The project took much longer than anticipated but the first version of Bookprice was ready shortly after graduation.

The version of Bookprice you are using right now has undergone significant evolution and is aimed at being a robust platform that serves the needs of more than just a handful of people :)


Our Vision

Our eventual vision is the make Bookprice the decision-engine behind online purchases. Though we are focused on books, we aim to be much more than that. Keep checking back as we gradually expand!

Bookprice exists thanks to people like you! So do us a favor and spread the word!
