The Book Depository

A book I'd like to buy is Ernst Bloch's Traces. Looking on Amazon though, it seems to be unavailable. It has that phrase in the Availability field "usually dispatched within 4 to 6 weeks", the bookish equivalent of "can't we just be friends?"

But an alternative has appeared. The Book Desposity not only says Traces will be dispatched in 2-3 days, it is also over £2 cheaper than Amazon AND has free postage and packing.

I'm going to investigate the rest of the site which includes, in keeping with its title, a specialist section of books on greenkeeping: Grassy Knolledge.

  1. Ah, that would be the conspiracy theory section as well I assume.
