STACKING THE SHELVES (80): THE BOOKOUTLET HAUL EDITION P1.

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that showcases newly acquired books or goodies we bought, received or borrowed during the week.
This is the first successful order I had from BookOutlet. Guys, it's a savings serial killer! Books are cheap there and when I say cheap, like, seventy to ninety something percent cheap! And as you know this person right here *points to me* is a hardbound fan, BO is the best place to be. The first time I ordered was on a sale period so I ordered a bunch of books. Well, I hoarded books. Thanks to Eunice of Nerdy Talks for teaching me how to order from there.

My first failed attempt was last year, I think? Then tried again this March, I settled the shipping payment April and got my very first BookOutlet package just after a little over a month! I was screaming, shaking and flailing like crazy when I got it! It was the best feeling ever!


So how did I order? I just created BookOutlet and LBC Shipping Cart accounts. Shipping Cart will then provide you a US address (their warehouse's) and that's what you'd use as your shipping address on BO. You need to have a valid credit card and just setup your billing address then viola! WELCOME TO THE BLACK HOLE THAT IS BOOKOUTLET! Oh, for cheaper shipping costs from US to PH, use Sea Cargo. And try to ship as much books as you can so the shipping price from LBC can be maximized. It might take a while but IT IS OH SO FUCKING WORTH IT!!

The total costs of all my orders are beyond my allotted book budget for the entire year but if you think about it and start calculating it against the SRP of each book, guys, I saved half of the total. So you go now, you do the math.

And here's the first batch of books I ordered. Brace for impact because a few more are on their way! (I'll post Part 2 of this next week.)

  2. Wow, you went through quite a process to get those books! I loved P.S. I Still Love You. Do you know that Jenny Han has recently said that she WILL write a thrid book in the series? Awesome! I also just bought I'll Give You The Sun. I think Jandy Neslon lives in my area, so I attended an book signing and got her to authograph my book! She was super nice. Have a fun time reading your books.

    1. It was because Book Outlet doesn't ship to our country but it was all worth it! I haven't read PS but enjoyed To All The Boys. Yes, I do know there would be a third book and lucky you for having Jandy near you!

  9. It's always been a problem for me to order books online because I don't have a credit card and my parents don't own one too. I can only order books online whenever I won in giveaways. I heard about Book Outlet before but because of my said problem, I can only stare at the website wistfully. But a friend told me that you can also order books from Book Outlet by just paying someone to do it for you. She even recommended someone so now I'm saving up for it. :))

    Anyway, I love your haul, Kate. *stares at Sempre*

  10. I've been meaning to order from Book Outlet for soooo long now but a.) they don't ship to the Philippines, and b.) I don't have a credit card of my own and my parents won't let me use theirs. This is a wonderful haul, Kate! I'm looking forward to more though *wink*.

  12. Hi! Been meaning to order from BO too. already set up an account in LBC shipping cart. I also have a CC. Now my prob is the billing address, there's no 'Philippines' on the dropdown box for country. Help please... How'd you do it? Did you use a diff country?

    1. They don't ship to the Philippines so I don't think it will be in the drop down. Use another billing address from another country. :)

      Delete
    2. Yup, yung sa shipping address I used the shipping cart address. Yung sa billing address, I can use the same? Kahit CC ko here from Pinas? Sorry I'm confused huhu. And super thanks for the quick reply!

  13. Hi! How long did it take for them to deliver you items via SEA CARGO? (From time Amazon/BookOutlet delivers it to their warehouse and the time it gets delivered to you?
