"A roadmap for shopping the Internet"
"The Bible of Online Shopping Guides"
"Think of it as a Google for shoppers...The sleekly designed book brims with helpful cross-references and hints for getting the most out of an online shopping experience."
thepurplebook is the original annual directory of the best shops offered by the world wide web. Our staff pores over tens of thousands of online retailers each year and hand-picks the cream of the crop for inclusion in the book. We're always on the lookout for the finest product selections and most rewarding shopping experiences, and over the years have uncovered some of the internet's best kept secrets, which we've been proud to share with our readers. Keep an eye out for our very special Wedding and Green editions, in stores everywhere January 2008.
We are also pleased to bring you thepurplebook.com. Here our collection of the web's best department stores, catalogs, discount warehouses, niche retailers, gift shops, franchises and boutiques may be searched according to category, key word, product type and/or gift option.

Each site listing features objective written reviews from recent editions of thepurplebook, as well as customer service ratings and contact information. The goal of thepurplebook is to help consumers unlock the true potential of e-commerce, and ensure the best of the web gets noticed!
