Hello everyone! Based on your comments last week, it seems like November 13 is the more popular choice for the next meet up so please block off that date! I was thinking we can meet around 2pm, have a getting to know you type of discussion and then maybe browse the bookshelves of Fully Booked for possible purchases. Let me know what you think of this set-up. I plan to email Fully Booked to let them know so we can have the function area reserved.
Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s discussion. Some of you even made your own blog posts to answer the meme. For this week, I thought we could talk about something that Mel suggested – where do you buy your books? I’m sure a lot of us will mention the three major local bookstores: Fully Booked, Powerbooks and National Bookstore. And probably Book Sale because it has so many branches. Some of you might say that you also get books from Amazon and Book Depository for books that aren’t available here. I’m hoping that we’d get some unexpected answers like used bookstores in your neighborhood or near your school/workplace. You could also talk about your experiences of ordering books abroad – how expensive was shipping, how long did it take for the books to get here, do they deliver straight to your house or do you need to pick up the books from the post office? Feel free to share the URL of your favorite Multiply seller or eBay seller. Have you tried ordering from other online bookstores aside from Amazon and Book Depository? Fire away!
Hope you all have a nice weekend! It’s a long weekend so more time for reading. 🙂
