Hello ppl. Another day and surprise, surprise another bookish problems post. I'm quite sure that I lost that problems part somewhere in the process but I guess you all pretty much understand that this is basically a discussion post. I have got another discussion today and it's about book ordering.
So, when you have a resourceful friend like Zemira as your bestie, your life can be really easy. Trust me that girl really knows how to find what you need and how to find it cheap, which is how we like our books, because that usually means we can order one more. Therefore I'll now present you some sites where you can order books, and which I used. Side note I won't mention Amazon here, as really there is no need to. You know more about it then I do, anyway. Also you might notice that there is no Barnes and Noble on the list, but that's because I have never actually used it.
The Book Depository
I won't say much about this one as it's really wildly known. It's really an amazing site (it used to be more amazing but well economy is not our best friend) and what is the most amazing thing about it is that you get free worldwide shipping. Most of my books came from this site and I have never got any of my books lost or really damaged. When I said it was more amazing in the past it's because it used to be a lot cheaper. Now the problem is that pre-order discounts are low and book prices are sometimes really high. But still it offers most of the books you are looking for and it arrives at your doorstep really quick.
When I said cheap in at the beginning of the post you should understand that it usually means used books. BWB is yet another amazing site which offers you both used and new books, where used books sometimes even have hilarious prices. You can find perfectly preserved books for little money. The price may vary, but you people at the USA get them really cheap. Once again use it!
Now I wonder have you ever used any of these? What are your thoughts about them? Do you have any others to share? If yes, then please do so!
