It was long waiting ever since I wanted to try to buy a book on Amazon.com, and yes, I did it two days ago. It is cheaper than Malaysia and you don’t have to wait for few months to half a year for the new release book (I mean non-fiction, all those fiction book will normally release at the same day, yap, it is odd).
I bought the Purple Cow, New Edition: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable, it is a business book talking about how to being remarkable in your business. I will talk about the book next time. I have to read it first (still on the way to me).
Buying book on Amazon.com is easy, it gives you several option to buy the book, including an option called 1-click. yap, 1 click, click the button then you will completed your check out and paid for your book, but don’t use this option, because you won’t have a chance to review and confirm your order, everything will be don’t in 1 click, fast enough but I don’t like it.
As you can see the picture above, it gives you a very detailed information about your order including shipping estimate, delivery estimate, shipping address, Item Ordered and so. I am not showing it all, some are personal data. I choose the cheap shipping option, so it took around a month for the delivery but it is still worth to wait, lot more cheaper if I travel to KL and buy the book from Kinokuniya. I don’t even go Popular or MPH to buy this kind of book just because they don’t really have much book. Popular is more like a stationary store and MPH is more like a magazine store. They got many books, but most of them are fiction and some unknown book. I don’t like it.
1 thing I like the most is the reminder, if you bought a book on Amazon.com, everytime you browse back to the book you have bought, it will show you the reminder to remind at which date you purchased the item. Books.com.tw has this function too but you will only see it after you add the book to your shopping cart. Not that nice compare to Amazon.com.
That’s it, good experience and I will definitely buy books on Amazon.com again, until then, let’s wait till I got my book.
