Kino and other local book retailers selling Duric book at $23-25 range.

I got mine at $14 from bookdepository, almost 40% savings leh.

Not to mention free delivery.

I went to the Kinokuniya at Takashimaya on last Monday(Youth Day). Quite a number of people plus teenagers. Doesn't seem like business not good. But I did not buy books that day.

There should be a resurgence of printed materials. But as some point out. It might be amazon game to eat.

It depends whether the book is in stock. I got mine in a month because the book sent in by the supplier is damaged. Usually is 3 weeks.

Find that can get cheaper prices via online shopping

Difference is probably the quality of product I receive and also the atmosphere reading the materials

The only thing it wins is the actual book experience in real life. Otherwise, its a goner.

Usually they will announce on the day.

If they inform earlier, everyone will hold their purchases until the promotion day.

Just back from Kino. Not much people shopping, considering Friday and member promotion, it does not spell good for the bookstore.

Did not buy any books as I still have backlog not read.

Well, I noticed a lot of customers browsing through but not buying. Its gonna be tough for them especially during the recession period when people are definitely going to cut down on these wants!

kino charge super high fees for the books.

if you are not ordering from bookdepository.com if they have it there, then u are quite...

anyway, they belong to Amazon's and it sells in SG$ plus free shipping all the way from UK. quite amazing, I must say!
