Can we give/receive iBooks?

You can definitely request ibooks/ebooks but for the most part (except for one person) people seem to prefer paper copies of books

Melissa Veras (melissaverasr) Hi! Ok, now I have a question. Mel, you said that " If the person you have does not send to their Secret Santa, I will have you cancel your original order, and send something to the person they had."

But what happened if I can't cancel the order? BookDepository accepts cancellations only if we return the book to them. And it usually takes two days to dispatch a book, so if I buy it now, by december 7 it will be too late :(

Yes I thought about that and I was thinking that if you are worried about this to just mail it closer to the 7th, so maybe on the 6th?
I still don't imagine this being a big problem though, I feel like everyone will be honest with this!

I never thought about this! I suppose I can! I will have to start messaging people to see if they got their gifts then!

karen (karenbrissette) | 102 comments i don't think my person ever came back to the group, so i can only assume it got there?

Hi Karen! I actually messaged everyone a few days before Christmas to ask if they got their books and your replied no. I can ask again though :)

message 17: by karen (new)

karen (karenbrissette) | 102 comments DAMMIT. that's because i had to use the other place and they were all "we are bad at shipping things so who knows when it will arrive whee!"

let me go to the site and see if i can check status.

Okay that sounds good! I didn't think of that. I know book depository doesn't have that option

message 19: by karen (new)

karen (karenbrissette) | 102 comments argh. it says it was shipped on the 12th (six days after i placed the order) and:

Expect delivery between 21st December and 30th December.
