The Book Depository

I recently saw a book that I thought looked pretty interesting and when I did a search on it, it was apparent that the book hadn't made it to our shores yet.
I try to support Fishpond (Australia/NZ version of Amazon)whenever possible but this time I found The Book Depository in UK. Not only were the prices comparable to Amazon's but they have free international postage! How enticing is that?!

I've heard others talk about these guys too. I think I'm off to check them out!! Especially if you can get books published in other countries. Amazon is really terrible about carrying about that!! :(

Oh goody, more books to buy! Had a looky, their prices are very good!

I think I owe you an apology Christina. I forgot to get back to you with hotel information for the USA. I'm guessing it's too late now. I forgot all about it until I saw you travel journal post!

No affiliation but I just love the Book Depository. As far as I know it is a family owned company so not on a massive scale like Amazon but I find them far superior to Amazon. They suffered really badly a few years ago in the floods we had in the UK, but they seem to have managed to make a full recovery.

Oh yeah - I love that site - free postage on books - too hard to resist! Like you I try to support Aussie sellers but sometimes it is hard to find technical books here so I have to head off shore .... So which book did you buy?

I have always been an avid supported of Fishpond and my wishlist is quite impressive but, when I checked out the BD I think I wept!! The prices are amaaaazing and it's all free shipping!! My purse feels LOT lighter and I have wasted precious sewing time filling THAT wish list!! Thanks Christina!!
