BTT: OOP (December 6, 2007)

This week's question


This week’s question is suggested by Island Editions:

Do you have a favourite book, now out of print, that you would like to see become available again? (I have several…).

These days, I can find almost all the books that I want thanks to a combination of traditional brick-and-mortar and online bookstores. Here are my favourites:

  • Kinokuniya
    Please check out my recent post about Kino. They are now taking orders for books unavailable at the store and then source them for their customers. Cool!
  • http://www.betterworld.com/
    Great place for used books. The main attraction is the shipping cost which is USD2.97 flat per book for International addresses (free for US). I bought the initially unavailable Anne Stuart's Ice Series here. Kinokuniya KLCC has recently stocked up on the titles! Same goes for Suzanne Brockmann's books. Things are looking pretty bright in KL BUT now I've just restarted on my postgraduate studies...
  • http://www.christianbooks.com/
    This is my favourite Christian online bookstore that sells virtually every available Christian titles and I'm very impressed with their bargain bins. I've bought books as cheap as USD0.99 and the shipping costs stays at USD10 up to a certain extent. By the time I stopped loading the shopping cart, I've bought a carton full of books!

So there, OOP is really not an issue at the moment...

Happy BTT, everyone!
