Re: If you buy books, will you wait some time to see a discount on a book of interest

I order them regularly.

Paper form - I like the smell of dead plant life in my hands.

Would I be interested in waiting if it means a discount? Most likely not - I order my books because I want/need them now. If the shop already tells me order time is over 2 weeks, I most likely will look for an alternative.


Now, if you ask Helm circa 1998, just getting inside the university and without two pennies to rub together, she'd probably wait for some discount on the ridiculous prohibitive price for university books.
