I agree Stu, the free postage will probably go along with the great service..I have been receiving books from the Book Depository within 8 days of ordering them.. never had a problem

I alos hope they honour the prerelease orders that have already been placed.

It is a shame as reducing competition is a bad thing. I imagine Amazon will be dropping the free shipping it currently has to Australia once they have absorbed BD.

Realistically, Amazon is so big that it will always be able to consume anyone else that is a threat, just by virtue of having such deep pockets. Equally, I guess it sets a precedent for would-be businesses. If you can get the venture capital to set up a just-about-breaks-even site that gets big enough to be a thorn in Amazon's side, they will be forced to give you a giant pile of money to disappear.

Just the one Wellinghall!? £60 for a full, decently jacketed, set is not too bad though, is it?
