Nothing can replicate the physicality of a bookstore that knows what it is and what it was built to do. But if you're counting on a rare title to appear on the shelves of your local bookstore, you may very well be waiting for The Winds of Winter. If you, like many others, have gotten used to ordering on Amazon and forking over exorbitant sums of money to pay for shipping, you could be on the losing end of the bargain.

Thankfully, Book Depository is an online bookstore that doesn't require you to pay for shipping, no matter where you live. With over 16 million titles shipped to thousands of customers every day from their center in Gloucester, United Kingdom, Book Depository is quickly becoming the fastest growing bookseller in Europe.

The Philippines happens to be one of the many countries they ship to with free delivery. That said, they do not offer a definitive time or date for when deliveries will be made. 

Book Depository owes its expansive list to the fact that it is Amazon-owned. With Shelfari and Goodreads succumbing to the retail giant in previous years, Book Depository may just be another acquisition in Amazon's belt of book-related websites, but hey, free shipping. You won't even have to drive to the postal office. Just hoard away.
