Book Depository

It’s websites like these that have resulted in the demise of Borders in the US, and (although separately owned) Borders and Angus & Robertson in Australia and Whitcoulls in NZ.

I’m betting everyone else is all over this one by now (I’m usually the last one to find out – does anyone know if they still make Ruffles?).

But for those who don’t know about it yet, put simply – it’s cheap books online. They’ve got a huge range, low, low prices and did I mention they do free shipping? Of course I didn’t, cause I was saving that bit for last; but they have FREE SHIPPING people!

A few people have mentioned it to me and now I’m sharing it with you. Kind of like that movie with that kid from The Sixth Sense? Pay It Forward or something; with Kevin Spacey & Helen Hunt.

Whatever happened to that kid? What happened to you Haley Joel Osment?

    Oooohhh, my wife’s gonna go NUTS! 🙂 ‘Free shipping’ seems to be the new hook – if you haven’t already, check out http://www.cdwow.com.au. Twelve-buck CD’s _and_ free shipping?!?! What an exciting time to be alive…

    I think the kid from the sixth sense got in trouble for DUI,which was odd because he still looks like a creepy little child. You’re right about websites like this killing bookshops. I’m making a concious effort to use libraries and small bookshops more in a crusade against the might of amazon, the book depo and co.
