Saw a couple of recommendations for this book on another thread, so decided to buy it to add to my investment library. (Nothing much, just have a half dozen books or so).
So I looked around on the net for suppliers and prices -
Local - Borders $67.95
O/S Amazon $32.97 Looked good, half price of local suppliers.
However Amazon had fairly hefty charges for delivery to Australia -
Regular delivery up to 8 weeks $44.64 inc.
Quicker delivery up to 4 weeks $50.88 inc.
Special delivery up to 1 week $65.43 inc.
(Amazon only deliver free within the USA)
Looked further and came across Better World Books (USA) $40.78 inc.
Placed order - they offered delivery 2 weeks or so.
Will wait and see what their performance is like.
No wonder book sellers in Australia are mostly going broke.
Wonder why books in Australia are so expensive ?
Anyway buy a lot of "stuff" on the internet now, at prices much lower than local suppliers. Friends do also.
Some explanation for the declining state of local retailing ?
