One of the things I love about reading other people's blogs is hearing about new (to me) websites and businesses. Places with great customer service and good prices. In an effort to pay it forward, I thought I'd share one of my favorites with you. Just in case you haven't heard of it before. It's called The Book Depository. I can't remember the first time I ordered from them, but I've been pleased with their service and prices every time. Here's just one example...
Several months ago I was in a quilt store when one of the customers brought in a quilt with her. I don't know if she was shopping for a backing or just wanted to show it off. As it was jaw droppingly gorgeous, I don't blame her if she just wanted to brag a little. She also had the book the pattern came from with her. It was called Quilt's from Grandmother's Garden by Jaynette Huff. This lady had made the quilt from the cover.
The book came today and I'm pleased as punch with it. I'm adding the cover quilt to my list of quilts to make one day. As you can imagine, that's a very, very, very long list already.
So let me sum up my review of The Book Depository...
- A large selection of books
- Most of them are priced less than the cover price
- Free shipping worldwide
- Great customer service
- The Book Depository Live - You can see what books other people are buying all over the world, but don't worry, it's anonymous!
- It will take a little while for the book to come. It took 18 days for this latest one to come, but considering how little I paid for it, I didn't mind. Besides, I think they're located in the United Kindgom!
Also, if you haven't entered my giveaway yet, you still have time. Just leave a comment on this post!
