My Favorite.. Website To Shop For Books



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info and the upcoming subjects visit the My Favorite Meme. page

To be honest, I am more of the book-shopping-in-an-actual-store kind of girl. I love browsing through the shelves in some of my favorite book stores. I love holding the books and smelling that lovely book smell. But.. Obviously I also buy some books online. When I don’t have a lot of time to go shopping, or when I just can’t wait to read a particular book.

I have two favorite websites to shop for books. One is a Dutch website where I can also buy English books: Bol.com. They have a lot of books, and when I order now I have the book tomorrow. The website is easy to browse through, and most times they have great customer services.  

When I can’t find the book I want on Bol.com I go to Amazon. Although Amazon is definitely not perfect, they seem to have everything. And most times you don’t have to pay that much to get the book to the Netherlands. But my second favorite website to shop for books is definitely the Book Depository. I honestly am a ‘new’ Book Depository shopper but I think it’s a great website. And I love the fact that you don’t have to pay to get your books home. But it can take a while. 

But still.. book shopping in a real bookstore is always the best.

What is your favorite website to shop for books?

  1. Hi Maureen! I live in Canada and Amazon is so much faster than the book depository. Have a nice day!

    1. I totally agree. Amazon is way faster. But sometimes I just think the shipping costs are very expensive. But when I really can't wait to start reading.. Amazon is the place to go.

  3. I do Amazon the most, then Barnes & Noble. Book Depository is awesome for international shipping. I use it for my giveaways.

    I love going into physical bookstores, too, but I don't get to that often.

    1. Amazon is definitely a great one. But I still wish I had more time to go the real physical stores.

  4. I prefer buying physical books in a real bookstore, too. I often don't make it to one and just buy on Amazon. It is very convenient!
