Oh no, Amazon has eaten our beloved Book Depository!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

I was in STM this morning and while having breakfast with Kar Yong and some fellow classmates, I learnt that Bookdepository has been acquired by Amazon. And I share the same dismay with Guardian that Amazon has eaten our beloved Book Depository.

It is the only decent place we can buy books online at a better price and free shipping. We do not yet know what Amazon will do with it. But as business and competition goes, I am imagining they'd, as Guardian so aptly put it, eat it up, gobble it all and they are done for...we are done for.

Boo hoo.

  1. must take full advantage of free delivery before amazon.com cancel it!

  2. But I don't have much of a wish list now. Will you be taking the opportunity before it's shut down?

  3. Yes, I definitely would. Transport fees are really expensive!
