You have probably noticed the new link in the right column for The Book Depository, one of my favorite book sellers. Why? Because they ship worldwide for FREE! And they have excellent prices.
- Book only available in the UK (like Kazuo Ishiguro’s new book of short stories will be next week)? Order it from The Book Depository.
- Better edition of the book, better cover, better series (like the Penguin Modern Classics series)? Order it from The Book Depository.
- Booker Prize underway but books not yet published in the U.S. (or wherever you live)? Order from The Book Depository.
It has also happened that the book I want is cheaper to order from The Book Depository, despite the exchange rate (you can see exactly how much a book costs in dollars, so you don’t need any outside exchange site), thanks to their free shipping and discounted prices, than from anywhere in the U.S.
I do get a small commission if you use the link on this site to do your Book Depository shopping, and that would be great. I have avoided joining any other affiliate program because I don’t think any of them will make me much money. However, I believe in the value of getting to know The Book Depository and hope many of you do.
