I've just been working out all the places where The Book Depository delivers book for free and it really is worldwide.

Y'all probably know that we -- The Book Depository that is -- deliver to the UK, US and Canada for nothing, zero, zilch, zip. But shipping to "Western Europe" (which includes: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Vatican City and Liechtenstein) is also free.

Other free delivery destinations include: Australia, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Singapore, the Bahamas, Barbados, Antigua & Barbuda and Trinidad & Tobago.

  6. That's bloody good value mate.

  7. Disappointed not seeing Russia in that list. Why?

  8. Free worldwide shipping - worldwide meaning worldwide - is also offered at for the ca. 1.4 Mio new books on their site.

  9. no free delivery to malaysia??sob sob

  10. Happy new year2010. this is outstanding blog for comment. awesome writing. Thanks a lot


  11. Unfortunately they seem to offer free delivery to 'non-dodgy' mail sorting cuntries, which pretty much rules out india, latin america, malaysia and russia. Oh well.

  12. offers low worldwide shipping fee for 3.97 dollars each book, and you may find that some (brand new) books are much cheaper in price.

  13. Sorry, but It's not true The book depository ships books for free worldwide. South america is not included, and, until where I know, we are in the world, for now.

  14. Sadly the Book Depository has been bought out by Amazon who are proceeding to ruin the concept - be aware the Book Depository prices are now more expensive than Amazon UK, so check out Amazon UK who are now offering some free shipping to overseas, "for a limited time only". Seems they didn't like the competition so they bought it out. Good for the guy who started the Book Depository - bad luck for us.

  15. @miriam, last time I checked the definition of worldwide was throughout the world, doesn't necessarily mean ALL the countries.
