Laura | 4298 comments This thread is for ONLINE book sales. This thread isn't to be confused with 'where do you buy your books' though.

So, for example..You get an email (like I did reccently) and it's for a massive blow out sale! Post it here :D

Sharing is caring..ehehehe ;)


message 2: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments I'll go first..

Booktopia is having ANOTHER sale but this time it's for their Birthday! They are 7 years old :D

They have over 2,700 titles under $10!!!

This sale ends soon. So please get in early as stocks will run out.

For those who don't get the email follow this link-

GO GO GO :d

message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments @Brenda- Lol! Nice one. I looked through the whole catalog and found 2 books but they both turned out not to be in english :/ Saved some $$ :D

@Carmel- Hush you :p lol


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

whoop whoop time to feed the addiction

love saving a buck or two


message 8: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments This is a 'sort of' sale.

If you make a wishlist on book depository you might get an email giving you a code to use on that wish list of yours.

I got one today so every book got 10% off plus whatever discount the book had on it beforehand.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I hadn't put a wish list on bookdepository. I had put one on Amazon and it identified books that went on sale but not directly you have to visit the site.

Laura | 4298 comments Not sure how many peple use Zavvi.com? It's in the UK. Shipping appears to be free to Australia as well :) I'm about to place my first order with them. But I've known people who have used them for game purchases before.

Anyways...They seem to have mega sales every so often but for a LIMITED amount of time. Right how there is an 80% off book sale.

Maybe you'll find a book you haven't been able to purchase else where ;D

When I click on your link, Maggie, also the above one (which is the same link, not the nile one) it goes straight to my home page of my hotmail account????

Thanks Carmel, that's the one...:)


message 16: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments zavvi is having another sale where you can save 10% off when you put in the discount code: MILF10


message 17: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments Currently Play Asia is having a 48 hour sale.

http://www.play-asia.com/A_race_again...

I always find their site to be a little confusing but I've bought from them before with no problems. Might be a chance to pick up some Manga (possibly not translated) and other books. Plus other Asian goodies :)


message 18: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments Nope, it's not. If i purchase manga it's got to be translated but because this site confuses me I tend to shop elsewhere.

Thanks Jayne :) How good a fishpond though? I've heard some very mixed results from other peopel who've bought from them in the past.

Really? I have ordered from them a few times and haven't had a problem. I recently ordered a textbook from them i needed for a course and it was about $20 cheaper than anywhere else and it was free shipping. I received it within the week without any hassles!

I suppose with any service there's going to be good and bad reviews though.


message 22: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments Cool :) Yeah, i agree on good/bad reviews..I just heard more bad than good. But it was for purchasing video games so maybe games are handled differently.

But great to know it's worked out well for you :))

Laura | 4298 comments What did you purchase?


message 26: by Lauren (new)

Lauren K (lauren_k) | 53 comments How exciting! It always brightens up a day when i receive a package on my doorstep! Especially if i have forgotten about ordering it. What did you get?

I'm trying to collect all the JD Robb In Death series...I read my first one (out of order) early last year, and loved it, so have been reading them on and off since then. I decided recently to collect them all, so that's what I'm doing...a big discount, and free delivery...oh goodness...

Vengeance in Death, Witness in Death and Judgement in Death

(PLUS I just got 4 different books from Big W's sale this morning at 2 for $20, but that's for a different thread I think..lol ;))

Well, congrats on collecting more of the series.
I'm bummed that i didn't get to the Big W sale! Hmm... still deciding whether i need to spend any more money on books.... although free shipping and discounts are VERY tempting!

Cool! Haha, how nifty they let him keep the 2nd lot.

I'm glad that my first impressions of this place were actually wrong.

Uh-o might go spend money then..lol

It's still on Jayne..the Big W sale that it!! Thought it was for one week, which would have ended it Wednesday, so I got a shock to see it still on when I was in there today!!! So you might be lucky :)

message 35: by Lesley (new)

Lesley | 323 comments I also had the '2for1' deal from Fishpond UK. They sent the same book twice. I haven't done anything about it yet.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

yes they justtold dad the either keep it or donate it to your library haha fantastic :D


message 37: by Lesley (new)

Lesley | 323 comments I sometimes buy from megabooks uk, through ebay. Secondhand books (though some are new)and sometimes ex-library books. Most 99 pence plus low postage rate which totals at about Aus$6 per book. Great value I think, with the library books being of larger size and very few marks if any. Worth checking out if you don't mind secondhand books.


message 38: by Laura (new)

Laura | 4298 comments Never thought to check Angus and Robertson..But with everything going on the sales are also online (atleast some of it).
