So, I ordered four books:
- Myth=Mithya, a book that promises to give an insight into Hindu mythology
- Dracula (yes, the old classic)
- Down the Road, a collection of short college stories ( a rare genre these days)
- Chanakya's Chant, a politico-historic story that's making waves currently.
But the packaging was really the best part. Compared to Tradus' lousy packaging and even Inkfruit's (which wasn't so bad), they treated my order like their own. It was so well-packaged (as you can see from the picture above) that even if the truck had dropped off a cliff, i don't think anything would've happened to them! apart from the cardboard, the plastic wrap around the book ensured that it was spanking new.
Good discounts, excellent service and no irritating newsletters and SMSes: Flipkart is clearly the best website I've found for online shopping for books. They sell much more than books but for now, my appetite for online shopping is satiated.
