Would someone start a thread that we can post deals like this for other members to see?  I was thinking it would be great to share this info with everyone.    Also do you just out of luck find the books that are 50% or more OR is there a search for that??

This is my first order from Book Depository.  How long does it usually take them to mail the books?  I placed an order 4 days ago and when I track it it's still "Processing".

I've gotten mine in 10-14 days. I am on the East Coast. It may take longer for those out west.

uh, didn't you already do that?  this is exactly the kind of thing i was hoping the Bargain Prices on Books thread would get used for.  the when & where specific books are on sale, although it's also good to have the info at the top that's there now with some good sites to check.

I started that thread but I was not sure anyone was using it.  I love to get a bargain!!!  I hope people will use it to share their "deals" with us!!!

My two Ilona Andrews books arrived from The Book Depository today. Still waiting for Covet to get here - it's supposedly still "processing." I think I have found another addiction LOL

I have ordered several books from The Book Depository for others.  The books arrived between 10-14 days after they were ordered.  Not bad.  They tell you it could take up to 2 weeks.  My DGD lives in WA and she got her books 10 days after I ordered I them   I love the Book Depository.  I order all my swap books from them because of the free shipping.

I hope I hang out here long enough to have your patience! I had to go get the book when it came out!LOL I have a bad habit of hitting the book store every Tuesday for my favorites. I guess I will have to check out this site and try and save some money! Im waiting for a new one by Maya Banks to come out on Tuesday, maybe I will try that one. Glad to find so many other book addicts!

Ooohh!  That site is just pure evil... oh man- I just placed my order too!   I never knew about all these sites in my pre-PBS days... 

What is it about free shipping that just makes your eyes glaze over & your fingers click "order" over & over?   (And of course the half price thing doesn't hurt either!!)

Any body else open 2 windows while you're on there so that you can check the numbers on your WL when you're ordering?  I can't wait... am I ever going to have some more great books ready to post out soon :)

Mine should be arriving any day.  I'm a bit worried though, since it hasn't gotten good reviews on PBS so far (or anywhere else)!

Debbie -- that is exactly how I order from Book Depository! lol I tab with my WL and the other ordering away on Book Depository. Evil is the word ... and over and over is the game!

And to further add to how wonderful I think they are ... my copy of "Julie and Julia" arrived crumpled in the mid-section with pages pulling out. I sent them a message asking what recourse I had and they said "no problem, keep the book you have and we're sending you a new copy."

I love that place.

A head's up though .... the same books don't stay 50% off all the time. So if you want it, order it. I learned that the hard way with the new Molly Harper book.

My copy of Covet arrived yesterday!  I'm still waiting on a copy of Living With the Dead by Kelley Armstrong that I also purchased from them.  I also ordered it a few days after Covet though. 

I'm officially addicted to Book Depository, even if it takes a little while for books to arrive.
