Book Depository: Up to 50% Off Books & Free Shipping
Book Depository is offering up to 50% off the retail price on a variety of books with free shipping, no minimum required.
While most of us buy our books at Chapters Indigo or Amazon Canada, alternative book sellers can actually have better priced options. That is why it is important to shop around - even for books.
Do not miss the small white tabs at the top that take you between different genres including, fiction, sci-fi, young adult, and more.
In the fiction section, I checked out Uncle Fred in the Springtime by P. G. Wodehouse. I picked out this book because of the funny name and the pig in the bathtub on the front cover. Originally $14.67, this book is on sale for $7.32. The book is $16.96 @ Amazon and $12.91 @ Chapters.
Some of the books in this sale are older, thus they are OOS at Chapters and Amazon. I found All of Me: My Incredible True Story of How I Learned to Live with the Many Personalities Sharing My Body on sale at Book Depository from $23.84 down to $11.89. When it was in stock at the other companies, it cost $16.14 @ Chapters and $15.33 @ Amazon. I think this non-fiction book is interesting read about a woman who suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). This disorder resulted in multiple and very different personalities housed all in one woman's body. How do you feel like yourself when you are many selves in one body?
In the children's section, I found a Dr. Seuss book - Scrambled Eggs Super! - on sale from $9.16 down to $5.80. This is the yellow book version (soft cover), which I could not find many places. The hard cover version costs $14.40 @ Chapters and Amazon. Even the digital versions are more expensive than this edition. Both the Kobo and Kindle editions are $10.99.
In the lifestyle section, I found a yummy book on food. The Make Your Own Organic Ice Cream book sounds delightful and makes me want to buy an ice cream maker for my stand mixer. Originally $27.52, the book is on sale for $13.73. This book was $24.70 @ Chapters and is $19.52 even used at Amazon Canada.
There are plenty of other books to choose from including romance, thriller, and sci-fi titles. With free shipping on any order, I suggest placing orders around the $20 mark to avoid duty charges (Book Depository is a UK company).
