  • The new book in Germany

    I still don't have a copy of Rod's new book ordered via Amazon in March (Germany) !
    Maybe it's a good idea to switch the publisher for your new book projects, this could even increase your sales (you can't buy a book that's not in stock).

    Regards,
    Lars

    Lars,

    I'll bring this to the attention of the publisher.

      Hi Lars,

      maybe you should switch the retailer. I was supprised when I compared the prices for 'Hibernate in Action'. Amazon.de sells it for 67 and libris.de sells it for 40 only. I think I will buy most of my english books at libris.de now, since amazon is using the UK pricelist rather than the US pricelist.

      Thanks,

      Martin (Kersten)

          Price is lower

          I ordered this book in March and the price was/is 35,09 EUR. The price today (Amazon Germany) is 36,90 EUR -> Libris is 59.- EUR ! The estimated shipping time is the same for both shops.

            Sure, I ordered my 'without EJB' copy also using Amazon. But 'Hibernate in Action' is a true blow to me. 40 instead of 67. So maybe the advice is simply: Just compare before you buy.

                  Hi,

                  I pre-ordered it and picked it up from the store once it had arrived. They seem to have quite a few stores around Germany. Maybe there's one near you? Anyway, they let you make an order without any obligation to buy, and will inform you via email once your book reaches the store.

                  Good luck! And ps - it really is a darned good read. So it'll be worth the wait

                    A big day in history !

                    Yesterday I received my copy of the book (received 4 days after ordering) from Lehmann's (www.lob.de).

                    The price was 38,61 EUR, no shipping costs.

                    Again, thanks for the hint !

                    Regards,
                    Lars

                      I got my copy from www.bookzilla.de at July 23. At that time I payed 33,99 , but now it's advertised for 59,00 . It seems the book is selling quite well :-)

                        I bought the book at bookpool.com in july for 19.99$, it's now 24.50$. Shipping to germany was about 12$. So the book costs me 32$ (~26 Euro), shipping time was 10 days.

                          For price comparison I found it very useful to compare book prices with

                          http://www.bookbutler.com
                          or http://www.bookbutler.de

                          I've had very good experiences with Lehmanns, http://www.lob.de , although they don't advertise it, they offer a 10% discount to members of GI (german computer society and ACM), just ask.

                          Also, I found that prices among different branches of Amazon can vary widely. If you have the time, it may well be worth it to order from amazon.com even though you're living in Europe -- but keep in mind that, at least in Germany, you'll likely have to pay 7% customs on books.
