Internet retailer Amazon.com said today that it reached an agreement to buy AbeBooks of Victoria, B.C. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Privately held AbeBooks lists used, rare and out-of-print books for independent booksellers worldwide. It will continue as a stand-alone operation in Victoria after the deal, which Amazon plans to finalize by the end of 2008.

So far this year, Seattle-based Amazon has bought online sewing-supplies retailer Fabric.com and audiobook seller Audible.
