Because they're awesome! We know our way around the best online booksellers and have no problem ordering from the mighty Amazon when forced to - on all other occasions, we head straight to The Book Depository. Why?
Free Worldwide Delivery! No matter where you live in the big, wide world - at The Book Depository, the price you see is the price you'll pay. No added charges for international deliveries or special 'prime' accounts required, like at um, some other booksellers.
Free Bookmarks! The first time we purchased a book from The Book Depository and it arrived with a cool, high quality bookmark, we assumed it was a special offer or a welcome gift. NOPE! Every time you buy from The Book Depository, your fine reading material will have a beautifully styled bookmark to accompany it. It seems stupid now after 20-odd years that Amazon didn't/hasn't thought to do this for their customers so The Book Depository can congratulate themselves for this brilliant idea. We've received various seasonal and themed bookmarks (we still need more!) and particularly adored their Van Gogh collection. Check-out yours when you buy!
20+ Million Books! You might find yourself down the 'buy more books' rabbit-hole for hours at The Book Depository, with more than TWENTY MILLION books to choose from - all with free delivery! Pricing is excellent and there are loads of bargains to be found.
Non-English Books! The Book Depository does a particularly good job with supporting non-English readers, who might simply know various languages or are using these books to help learn a language. In any event, The Book Depository excels with competitive pricing with the world-famous (we reckon) FREE delivery helping to reach eager readers in more than 150 countries.
Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance.
Kate Atkinson has an innovative style and her previous novel Emotionally Weird earned a respectable four-star rating. Case Histories gets a modest three-stars. The biggest problem is that it's just too messy. Events are eventually sort of connected but only because the author has decided to connect them before the book finishes, not apparently out of any logical link.
Silks is the first novel written with significant input by Dick's youngest son, Felix. Previously, Felix had assisted in the research of many of Dick Francis novel's but following the author's death in February 2010, his son has taken over the Francis legacy.
Silks, true to the Francis form, offers suspense, twists and turns that will keep you guessing throughout. Well researched information of both the racing world and the world of law help maintain a healthy level of interest - much of the information being gathered from the writer's own experiences.
No matter how we may feel about it, divorce is common in our society. Often the individuals who suffer the most are the children. The plight of children surviving the divorce of their parents has been the subject of much discussion and debate. Although some couples manage an amicable separation, others use their children as pawns to get what they want. Discord among parents is not a new theme but, in Belva Plain's novel, After The Fire, Plain takes this theme to an unusual and heartbreaking level.
After The Fire threatened to overwhelm me at times. It may make you take a second look at your own choices in life. Who do you give power over yourself? Do you really see your partner, or do you only see what you want to? How does one survive after being betrayed by someone you love so dearly? Belva Plain recounts this tale with clarity and insight, making this a novel worth reading.
Flashes And Specks begins with the suicide of Henry's cousin, Carter. The cousins use the comic book world to escape from their own worlds, comic book heroes being a prominent and occurring theme throughout Flashes And Specks, particularly the notion of hero verses villain.
I was not initially expecting to like this book but by the time I'd finished it, I was converted enough to consider it almost a 'must read'. Flashes And Specks is just the right length for what it is but at the same time, it leaves you wanting more. Insightful, mind-bending and at times challenging to the point of being slightly depressing, Flashes and Specks will make you consider your own feelings on life's challenges. Surprisingly unforgettable.
To say that Babs is Natalie's closest friend is rather like saying that Einstein was good at sums. Babs and Natalie had such a beautiful relationship, no man could better it. And then she met Simon. Now Babs, noisy, funny Babs, is getting married and Natalie, 27, is panicking. What happens when your best friend pledges everlasting love to someone else?
Running In Heels is an example of 'Chick Fiction' trying to get serious and making itself appear one Bridget short of a phenomenon in the process.
