This is KEWL.



So, recently a fellow book blogger told me about The Book Depository.  I had NO IDEA this company even exsisted, nevermind the FREE shipping.  HELLO!  How much MONEY have I wasted with other online book companies???  ANYway, clicking around there I found this cool feature on their site.  You can follow a world map and watch people buying books LIVE.  It is one of the neatest things E-V-E-R. 

Click here to check it out!

And sometimes their prices are cheaper than other places. Love TBD!

Yes! I love The Book Depository! That company has already taken plenty of my money, haha. Plus, you can't beat the free shipping OR the half-off (select) hardcover books.

Book Depository is great! I just bought a few books from them last month. I didn't know about this feature though. It is super cool!

i KNOW!!!!! i just about died when i found it, and actually, i accidentally ordered 15 books the first time i was checking it out. i was comparing prices with amazon.com and thought i would get one more confirmation page before finalising my sale. not the case!! my hubby didn't believe me that it was an accident but it's true, i didn't do it on purpose! oh well, it was a happy mistake :-) i mostly shop on the .co.uk rather than the .com as there is a bigger range of the same titles and can usually get a book a few dollars cheaper, which adds up when shopping for books like i do.....

This is fairly new to me too, so happy you can get UK covers too!

I found it yesterday and thought that part was cool also. I'm in Bermuda and was way excited to see my chosen book for free shipping. WOWSA

I didn't have time yesterday but I will definitely be looking around it later.

Christi: I know I am totally indebted FOR LIFE to the fellow blogger who told me about it!

Nikki: I didn't know you could do half price or free shipping! I have to surf around a little more on it. (Almost scared to!)

Hey Tara: I just checked out your blog! It's also very KEWL. :0)

Mammazappa: Your comment made me LAUGH. That is something I would totally do! And especially your husband not believing it was an accident! That would be mine, fo sho. :0)

Mel: I know, I wondered if the versions of the North American books would be the same? But I think in some cases you would get the British version of the cover? I wonder if that is also including some of the content? Maybe someone with more experience with TBD could tell me, gee, I wonder who has bought a lot of books from there.... Mammazappa(cough cough!) LOL!

MarceJ: Bermuda? NICE! And the fact that they have free shipping to island locations is unreal. I seriously cannot tell you how much money I have spent on shipping over the last, say, 12 years?
