TT #6: online stores

Thirteen favourite online book/CD/DVD-stores

  • Proxis - Belgian site (click EN under the HOME tab to get it in English) with great range of books, CD's etc. I've ordered here several times.
  • Amazon - I've ordered both at .com and I like the option to buy/sell second hand and never had any problem with ordering.
  • Discount New Age Books - I found this shop when I was googling for the Magick Stamp Kit, that was sold out in The Netherlands. Excellent service!
  • CD-WOW - British CD & DVD store with free delivery worldwide. There is a lot of Dutch stuff too.
  • Dover Publications - US publishing company someone recommended me when I was looking for colouring books, but their range is much wider.
  • Re-Played - Dutch site, specialized in 2nd hand items such as CD’s and DVD’s, but new articles and gadgets are also available.
  • Sounds True - audios, books and tools for the inner life. I recently got this tip on the Global Goddess Yahoo-list and am still exploring their range.
  • Reader's Digest - I've been subscribed to the Dutch magazine (50 editions in 21 languages) for a long time and have several books.
  • eBooks - the digital bookstore! 52,000 popular, professional and academic ebooks from the world's leading publishers available for downloading at a nice price.
  • American Book Center - one of the biggest sources of American (and British) language books on continental Europe. I love to visit the stores in Amsterdam and The Hague, but online is fun too!
  • - books, CD, DVD but also software, games, electronics. I regularly order (mainly) books here.
  • Llewellyn - the oldest and largest new age publisher. The books, datebooks, etc. are wonderful and the website has a lot of extra's to offer.
  • Free Record Shop - Most of my CD's and DVD's I buy here. I have a Free-ID which means 10% discount both online and in the shops.

Do you have a tip, know another great store like these?
Please share them with me!

    I don't order much online... I like to be able to put my hands on the things I buy... maybe i'm just old-fashioned.

  21. Powells Books is usually my one-stop shopping spot.

    My T13 is up. It is my ninth and it's the Elemental Edition.

  22. Not eBay? I get some great deals on signed fist editions there...

    My very special 13 is up.

  23. Happy TT!

    I will check these out as well, as Tye just gave me access to his money! *evil laugh*

  24. I like Amazon! I ran all over the DFW area last year looking for a book to get my Mom for Christmas. I gave up & ended up getting it from Amazon. I worried that perhaps I wouldn't get it in time & it arrived in 3 days. I was mega impressed!

    Thanks for visiting me today. :-)

    Heya Tink! I've shopped at quite a few of those places as well. In fact, I was able to get the missing books in the Dune series that my dad only had half of, and most of them were the ones that went with the books my dad bought back then. I'm currently on the 6th book of 6 in the series, and I'd forgotten how much of a genius Frank Herbert was. Ta for now dahling!
