It Arrived, Finally!!!

The book was sent all the way from Belgium..  Now I can see the reason to the slight delay of the book arrival

I pre-ordered a copy of the latest title of Geronimo Stilton's via The Book Depository sometime in February and it finally arrived today!  Woohoo!!  

Winding back time to February, I didn't know this title was yet to hit the bookstores worldwide when my boy asked me to get a copy for him when  I told him I would be going to Popular Bookstore after dropping him off at school.   He got to know about the title from the next book release page published in one of his Geronimo Stilton's.  I did not manage to get the book back for him, of course and there's when I started googling for the title and stumbled upon The Book Depository website.  I only paid USD5.25 which's equivalent to about RM16 with free postage! I usually pay RM18 each after a 10% member discount at Popular Bookstore.

This book would be released in April, so I was told when I placed my pre-ordered copy.  I received an email from the The Book Depository on 19 March 2012 informing me that my book was on its way here.  My boy was pretty excited about it and kept asking me if the book has arrived and starting to get worried when it didn't after 10 days.  He even bugged me to write to them to enquire about the whereabout of the book.   Hahaha...

Now that the book has arrived, I can almost hear the voice of my boy screaming in excitement when he finds his favourite copy sitting on the car seat waiting for him when he gets into the car after school later! LOL... 

I highly recommend this site to all book lovers.  And NO, this is not a sponsored post, neither would I get any reward for writing this post entry.   I am merely a very satisfied customer wanting to share my positive experience with all book lovers.

It's cheaper than Popular? Emm.... To encourage more Malaysian to read, should they reduce the price?

Time to bring my girl for book store visit :)
