Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Amazon buys The Book Depository?

Amazon Set To Acquire The Book Depository

"Amazon.com has today announced in a press release that it has reached an agreement to acquire The Book Depository International. The Book Depository is an online bookseller offering over six million books for delivery worldwide."




My fiancee just informed me of this and I don't know what to think exactly. Will amazon change The Book Depository? Will we now have to pay for shipping? Although the service is great, the free shipping is really what made the deal so sweet. Free shipping from the UK AND you can get US and UK covers, it was perfect. I'd hate to see it change, even if I like amazon as well.

Here's the link where we found this information. I hope to find much more information on this soon.



What do you guys think will happen?
Have you heard anything on this yet?

I read somewhere that TBD will continue to sell the same way as now but I'm not sure.

I'm also worried that things could change on the site, I love it the way it is!
