The Book Depository: "All books available to All"

A fun, new-to-me site is The Book Depository from Gloucester, shipping books worldwide without delivery fees. The site is:

From their "About Us" section:

About The Book Depository: The Book Depository was founded in 2004 with the aim of making "All books available to All" through pioneering supply chain initiatives, republishing and the digitizing of content. It is a continuing project, still in its infancy, and one of the most ambitious ventures in the book industry.

All books available to All: Currently, The Book Depository is able to ship 1.8 million unique titles, within 48 hours, from our fulfillment centre in Gloucester, United Kingdom. This figure is increasing everyday. Apart from publishers, distributors and wholesalers, we even list and supply books from other retailers! Amazingly, we are also able to arrange the reprint of over 300,000 out of print titles which, again, we can dispatch from Gloucester within 48 hours.

Because I'm a total geek, I love the Watch People Shop graphic with a map and listings like:

"Someone in Ireland bought How to Be Smart with Your Money with free delivery 12 minutes ago."


"Someone in Portugal bought Divine Power with free delivery 20 minutes ago."


"Someone in Finland bought Fallen Angels with free delivery 32 minutes ago."

Yes, I truly could go on and on about that feature all day!

For a limited time, a free, funky bookmark will also be included in every order. Click here to see the eighteen designs:

Oh, and of course, they have a blog, too:
