From their website:
Homeschool Library Builder is co-owned by two veteran homeschool families dedicated to Christ-centered education. Our desire is to help homeschool families affordably collect books for their literary-based educational needs. We stock both new and used books found in popular literature-based homeschool curricula, as well as select titles to supplement your unit studies. Whether you're looking for educational or leisure, inspirational or reference, self-help, activity, or classic reading, we are committed to providing wholesome materials that will enrich the entire family. 

You can become a member (for free) and receive the benefits listed.  Frequent purchases mean you are building up more points for free books.  Here's more on the membership:
As an HSLB member, you have the opportunity to earn Book Points when you tell your friends about us!
 
For every first-time purchaser who 1) becomes a member, and 2) enters your name as a referral, we will automatically add 45 Book Points to your account (equal to $3 on a future purchase).
 
Also, when you link HSLB to your blog or website, you will earn 75 book points in your HSLB account (equal to $5 on a future purchase)!  All you have to do is send us the URL for your blog or website.  Once we verify the link, the points are credited to your account!

As a Tapestry of Grace user, it is easy to search for books that would complement my curriculum.  They have sorted books by other popular curriculum such as:

One caution: If you use one of these named curriculum, but want to search out other shops for checking prices, I would suggest you have your reading lists handy.  Not every book suggested for Tapestry was actually a recommended resource.  Certainly the topics were similar, but the resources were not exact.

These veterans seem to understand that we search for books in LOTS of different way.  Books are organized by continent, subject (like science), and award winners.  And who doesn't like a $1 bargin bin?

They even sell used books, which are rated by condition.

One caution: If you use one of these curriculum vendors, but want to search out other shops for checking prices, I would suggest you have your reading lists handy.  Not every book suggested for Tapestry was actually a recommended resource.  Certainly the topics were similar, but the resources were not exact.
As an aside, if you are a homeschooling family running a business, HSLB is willing to help get your name out there for free!  You will want to read their guidelines, however.
