My Amazon.com Books Arrived! - Cory Doctrow and Neil MacFarquhar

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.
