Has anyone in Canada purchased books from the Book Depository? I read somewhere that they deliver books individually, even if you order several at once. I suppose this saves them a bit of money on shipping. I was wondering if we have to pay duty on books coming into the country? Several years ago, I used to buy most of my vegan books from The Book Publishing Company in Tennessee and I don't recall having to pay extra for those. Hopefully, this hasn't changed. I just bought eight books from the Book Depository!

i have had multiple-book orders from the book repository come to me in separate packages (and each with their own cutesy bookmarks).
i am shocked to see that in Brazil we don't have to pay import duty on books, but in Canada you do.

Well, that's a shame. Most of the books I was purchasing were little British books, part of a series. They were around two bucks a pop, part of the reason I was so thrilled to be getting them, but I am certainly not about to pay almost ten dollars duty on a two dollar book. That's just ridiculous. I guess I'll have my cousin order them on Amazon with her credit card and I'll just give her the money for them.

I ordered from the Book Depository once and paid no duty.

Really? That's good to know! I was thinking of ordering something just to see what would happen. I used to order books from the US a lot in my early vegan years and I was never charged anything extra when they came across the border.
