Professional Books…

… are still THE thing.
From the “Dummies” series to subject matter books, in this case bookkeeping, GST and tax rulings and such. If I find a book somewhere in the shops or within a discussion and find the cost a bit steep I will always check the same on the Book Depository.

More often than not I will find what I am looking for at a much lower price and in all varieties such as hard cover, paperback and sometimes e-books.

I have been buying my own and my children’s books for a few years now at the BD and have not ever had a problem. And if there is a delayed delivery or a faulty item I made contact and received a reply in less than 24 hours. Bear in mind that I am in Oz while the BD is in the UK.
For my leisure reading I usually review books first on GoodReads and if I find something, I can even create lists on the Book Depository.

I have wishlists for both my kids and myself. Once I buy a book off the list it drops away from it. Best of all > absolutely free shipping worldwide. Unless you need something within a week (this cannot be guaranteed), I probably wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I have tried numerous other Australian online book stores but somehow always find my way back to the BD.
This is my note for the day which came about while I was writing something else for this blog. It occurred to me how much we are still loving our “in-paper-bound” books, even my son who is now in High School and can chose between Textbook + E-book or just E-book. He will always go for the first option. So did my daughter btw. and both are avid readers (of different genres admittedly).
So check it out if you’re after some down-time reading material: Book Depository.

Formatting

My latest blog post “Journal Haul” took me a little while to create however when I now see it the pictures are all over the shop.

Apologies peeps, I had it all nicely layed out (Is “layed” the word?).

I am not sure how I am able to write posts with the formatting I want but I am sure I will improve with time.

Please be patient with me and I shall get better 🙂
