Hello from the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die editorial team.
This is just a short message to let you all know about a small change we have made to the blog.
For those of you who visit the blog regularly you may have noticed that we have a couple of buttons in the sidebar under the recent comments you may have made. For those reading in a feed reader, how about coming and visiting us to take a look?
The rather lonely figure of the Kiwi Mummy Blogs button has recently been joined by a link to the online book retailer, Book Depository.
We thought it was important to let you know that we have decided to become an affiliate for this retailer. Just to be clear, we’re not a money-making enterprise, just a couple of book-loving Kiwi Mums who like to hear what other people think of their reading. So nothing will be changing with respect to the content and format of the reviews.
We do, however, have something in the works that we hope you will like and Book Depository will be playing a part in that.
My lovely co-editor will reveal all about that before the end of this month, so keep your eyes open for another administration email.
In the meantime, if you already use Book Depository’s service (like I do), you might want to take advantage of the further 10% discount they are currently offering and while you do help us out with the costs involved in paying for a dot com address and a yet-to-be-announced event by clicking through from our small banner.
Never heard of Book Depository? If you don’t like paying for shipping and are willing to wait a bit, then they are a great option if you use online retailers*.
* Please note:
This is my (Ms Oh Waily) personal opinion and experience to date. For New Zealanders, you can often buy books at approximately half the price of local “bricks and mortar” stores, and find books that may take as long as 6 weeks to “place a special order for” but will arrive within 2 weeks or so if in available at Book Depository. Can you tell I’m a convert? One hard to find book was all it took to convince me that this was the way of my future book purchases. I would just like to share the love of a happy customer.
