Oh yeah, my three books ordered from Amazon.com has arrived.
Two Cory Doctrow’s novels (“Makers” and “For The Win”) and Neil MacFarquhar’s “The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You A Happy Birthday”.
This is going to make good reading for the next few months!
I’m surprised that it took this quick to arrive even though I took the default International Shipping mode. It was supposed to take about 4-8 weeks but it arrived on my doorstep in just 1 1/2. Not to mention it costs only slightly more to order 3 books including shipping from Amazon US than to buy one of the books from a local brick and motar store (Kinokuniya).
“The Media Relations Department of Hizbollah Wishes You A Happy Birthday” costs over SGD$50+ at Kinokuniya but only USD$10.78 or ~SGD$13.70. Even with shipping costs added to it, its still more than 50% cheaper.
What a steal.
