One fine Sunday morning, when I was reading this piece of Ramachandra Guha in the Hindu Magazine, I came to know about this amazing website for buying books online www.abebooks.com . I decided to give it a try. I was searching for this book "Deadly Deceits: My 25 Years in the CIA" by Ralph W. McGehee at www.Indiaplaza.in where I normally buy books and ask my parents to courier it back to me. But couldn't find this book at indiaplaza. That's when I came to know about abebooks.com. I found the book there and bought it for $1.60.Yes,for $1.60 and paid $ 9 for postal charges :P.
They offer cheaper postal charges for US residents though. And they rendered good customer service too. You can logon and check your order status,etc . If you are looking for a website to buy any Tamil books..Check out these sites www.anyindian.com , www.newbooklands.com, www.nhm.in.
