My Book Depository Experience

This is my first try to buy books online, just to share my experience with the rest of reader.

I believe E-book will be getting popular and common since the tablet generation is coming soon , but there are some books out there which I believe is better to have the physical copy. Rework is the book I think worth to keep, that’s why I been browsing around different online book store to see where can I get this book cheap?

Finally I have chosen Book Depository because their book price are including deliver charges , which mean there are no extra deliver fee no matter which country you order from. So I place my order on 16 Jan 2011 and it dispatched on 17 Jan 2011, finally I received it yesterday ( 9 Feb 2011 ) , total time is 23 days, which is about 3 weeks+.

It seem like they are sending to Singapore in bulk and mail it individually , this explain why it took so long, since Singapore here is celebrating Chinese New Year, lots of office and shop are closing for the past few day.

the book condition is perfect, I will recommend Book Depository if delivery date is not an issue to you , beside check out their Facebook fan page, there are some promo code giving out some time for more discount.

Share it with your friends, thanks !

  • Dude, you didn’t mask your address in your photo. Mine arrived in a box of some sort instead, maybe because it’s twice the weight of yours.

  • masked , thx for remind. Your 1 book so big ?

    • Not big at all. It’s just slightly bigger than the book itself. I’ll take a photo of it when I find time (and remember).

    • Too lazy to take photos. This is the exact cardboard box that was used for mine.

  • 10% Discount Code for the Book Depository

    I also ordered some books from BookDepository for the first time on October 2010.
    At early November, and while my books never arrived, they said that a full refund of 137.5 euros will appear in my account shortly.
    Shortly became FOREVER, so at January 10 of 2011 after I managed to find aphone number of them at last(!!!),some representative called Lu reassured me that they would send a cheque shortly (AGAIN!).
    Then on February 17 after I wrote them that if I don’t get my cheque until the 25th, everyone on the web would hear my story, they replied that they would immediately contact their accounting department in order to send the cheque ….guess again….SHORTLY!
    I really hope they will clear my issue eventually and save me from 137.5 euros of expenditure, which -believe me- in Greece especially is a large amount of money!

  • Yes that’s true, some books still needs to read through their physical copy in order to enjoy full charm and melody as you mentioned Rework is one of them.

  • I have used Book Depository several times and, although their postage is slow, their prices always seem good. I have provided another review on my website. Thanks for sharing your review.
