Okay, is this too good to be true? The Book Depository, an online bookstore in the UK, says they ship books world-wide for FREE! How is this possible? Has anyone ever used them? This offer is almost impossible to resist! (Especially because it’s possible that they have access to some books not available in North America).
I actually quite like shopping for books online. I get a cup of tea and then I can browse to my heart’s content. That’s not to say I don’t like visiting bookstores I do. Big box stores like Indigo are great, little ’boutique’ stores like Bean Books are terrific too. I don’t go to the library as much as I should because, okay, I admit it, I like to own the books. I haven’t had much success with receiving free copies via publishers. I got one review copy from Indigo and then they stopped the program.
Where do you get your books? If you hook up with publishers, how? Do you pass books on when you’re done with them or hoard them? I’d love to hear about you get your books.
