This is why I always use Book Depository these days.
Book Depository is more expensive for the books themselves, but Amazon totally fucks you over with the shipping. And their shipping timeframes are ridiculous too (4 weeks to ship a book, seriously?)
Book Depository total for 3 books: $72.20
Amazon total for 3 books: $127.18
btw worth mentioning that buying through these sellers was the only option available for two of the books.
Also worth noting that those crazy shipping prices were only revealed on the final page of the checkout. Here’s what the pricing looks like when selecting the book (and I was logged in when doing this, so Amazon knows where I live):
Summary: I love Book Depository
UPDATE: Have just been informed that Amazon owns Book Depository – which just makes this even worse. ie they have the infrastructure in place to make this better, but haven’t bothered to. Crazy.
