The Book Depository was started by an ex Amazon employee, and has since been bought up by Amazon. The Book Depository's main selling point is the variety of books they sell. Personally, I rarely read best sellers, I tend to go for books that are less mainstream. If you look through my reviews - you'll find that the vast majority of them are for books which are not reviewed by anyone else. The Book Depository specialises in the unusual it's almost as if it was created just for me :) Most of my orders from this company are for specialised children's educational books, like the Project X Code books my sons are collecting now, or harder to find children's non fiction ...

I also ordered some books from BookDepository for the first time on October 2010.At early November, and while my books never arrived, they said that a full refund of 137.5 euros will appear in my account shortly.Shortly became FOREVER, so at January 10 of 2011 after I managed to find aphone number of them at last(!!!),some representative called Lu reassured me that they would send a cheque shortly (AGAIN!).Then on February 17 after I wrote them that if I don't get my cheque until the 25th, everyone on the web would hear my story, they replied that they would immediately contact their accounting department in order to send the cheque ....guess again....SHORTLY!I really hope they will clear my issue eventually and save me from 137.5 euros of expenditure, which -believe me- in Greece especially is a large amount of money!

Never ever again - shops like this one shout be shutdown immediately :-(. I bought an online e-book, it was named "PDF download" but actually, it's a crippled down PDF, which can be viewed only by a fat broken Adobe Digital Editions - read: not printable, not readable in a normal PDF viewer, openable from other computers only with troubleshooting and hair pulling. I wrote the customer service guy to refund my money and he told me, it's my fault I didn't read the foot prints and they refused return me my money.Sucks, completely, they are happy they have my money, no problem for them that it's NOT a PDF I bought from them and that it's only a cripple book version.Never again, don't support shops like these, there are so many good book stores today, why to keep folks like these running with our money?

Founded in 2004, The Book Depository (www.bookdepository.co.uk) is an online book store selling a large range of books. In fact, they claim to be the UK's largest dedicated online bookseller offering the largest range of titles in the world, available for dispatch in 48 hours. The website is clearly laid out with a list of book subjects down the left hand side (Audio Books, Crime & Thriller, Humour, Food & Drink etc) and links to Bestsellers, Fast Movers, Reviews, Offers, Blog, Interviews etc along the top. At the very top of the page are links to Login/Register, Track Order etc, as well as Currency Selection (British Pound, US Dollar, Euro, AUD Dollar ... Read the complete review
