Just a heads up for a good place to buy books

I'll start by saying I am in no way affiliated with this website....it's just (as in literally just now) saved me a ton of money so I thought I'd share :)

 

The book depository sells the books by Notter and Grewelling (I haven't searched for Wybauw on there but I assume that's there too) at WAY less than other places. The amazon price for Notters book was about £175.....I got it for £38 on book depository. Much the same for Grewellings book. 

 

And yes I know....this is about my third post so I understand if suspicions are raised. I can only re-iterate I am simply sharing something that's worked well for me and may help others :)

Budding, UK based chocolatier .....or at least..that's the plan

At Amazon uk, actually any amazon, i assume nobody buys directly from the first page at "amazon price", as the prices never make much sense, you go below to one of the used or new link options, and then get very good deals, for eg. Notter's book is 30.5 gbp for new, before shipping. Unfortunately not every "shop option" sends to my country, i assume your life is much easier in that sense, and shipping costs are very low if you are in the UK (and Europe..).

I think Book depository used to have better prices in the past, but lost a lot of ground in the last couple of years, as it seems that the options i mention from Amazon uk site (below the "amazon price") became signifacently cheaper in past years, without a proper respone from BD.. My feeling and opinion..

They did used to be much better, but there's still a place for them definitely. Amazon can be a bit hit and miss with the cheaper options once you add postage and delivery times. Fair point though :)

If you're looking for books online, try addall.com -- it's a consolidator site, shows every copy sold on all the major sites in North America and Western Europe.  You don't buy from addall but you can click on the link on their page to buy from Biblio, Abebooks, Alibris, Half, Amazon, etc.
