In our digital age, e-books have overtaken the market. How about you? Are you still fond of touching and smelling a soft paperback?
As you probably know already: Tanzania is still pretty much off the map for big online retailers , unfortunately.
Amazon, the world’s biggest online store ships books and DVDs to Tanzania for rather horrific rates that often exceed the value of the goods you order, multiple times. It’s simply not worth it, unless you really need a book that you can’t get otherwise.
The Book Depository, a UK-based online book store offers free delivery to more than 100 countries, but the only country they ship to in Africa is just South Africa at the moment.
What’s your personal experience: which online book store is the cheapest / has cheap shipping fees to Tanzania?
