      my hubby and i would really enjoy these books as now that we have a little more time to enjoy life we do a lot of walking and see some birds that we do not know the name of as week as plants etc, so would be really great to win

      Excellent range of books and an excellent offer. Unfortunately for me I came to this page as I thought it would be a quiz about nature and being a bit of a pro thought I stood a good chance of winning!! I cant enter but anyone who fancies there chances the books on offer are very very good. I have owned various ones over the years as have some of my friends!

      Yep, the site's really wondrous, all right. As an ESL teacher school would seem quite a 'wild' place...

      A friend recently told me about BookDepository and I am now totally hooked! Books are so expensive in Australia but this site has finally allowed me to create the "home library" I have always dreamed of. I have 114 books in my Wishlist and am still adding. I will most certainly be a regular buyer. This collection would make a lovely addition to my reference books.

      When I saw this complete, something reminded me on my early childhood when my mother, biology professor, used to read me page by page of Brehm's Life of Animals. How only happy she would be to get this set, it would be really memory of her life, because I doubt that I'll be in chance to give her such a wonderful present here, in Serbia.

      Both my wife and I use BookDepository as the cost of books in Australia are ridiculously high, and you supply at no freight. You have got both of us as clients and my wife is a British citizen and still prefers BookDepository. Keep it up guys. More of the same service and prices, PLEEEEEEASE.
