wholesale books

Hi all,

I'm looking to order class sets of text books for my English students. I usually order from Book Depository but I thought there might be a wholesale book shop that would give me a deal for buying a large amount. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thank you!

Re: wholesale books

Sorry I can't provide you with a name but I think you are on the right track with Book Depository. I picked up an English book (school reading one of the kids) yesterday from the official store here in town. It was 50% more than the price from Book Depository.

As with just about anything, passing by the CH distribution system (of any type) is going to be expensive.

If you want to do some searching, I would look more for UK based book wholesalers (or whatever channel the UK schools use). They may be a bit less expensive than Book Depository (but not guaranteed since BD is now owned by Amazon so they have huge buying weight).
