do you buy books online?
do you buy them from better world books?
if you don't, you should.
• they're a store with a soul - "Better World Books collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than six million new and used titles in stock, we’re a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders."
• they offer free shipping within the states and international for only $3.97 (severely smashing all competitors)
• their prices are much less then other sites such as amazon and fishpond (i did serious research when looking for my most recent purchase, lonely planet new zealand guide) - it was looking at about $40 with shipping from all other online stores/actual book stores, i got it from bwb for $25.
• after you order it you receive a cute little personalised email including a story from "the book" about how excited it is to get to you.
i loved it.
• they have an awesome bargain bin!
so not meaning to rant or anything, just thought i'd share this awesome site.
i'm going to new zealand for the first time in a few months and was looking for the lonely planet guide everywhere, and all i saw was $$$$$$.
on my travels i found better world books and after having a solid read of the site, i was really, really impressed.
happy shopping :)
