Currently I am reading the book "The A-Z of Creative Photography: Over 70 Techniques Explained in Full" by Lee Frost (ISBN: 0817433139) . It is a good book and recommended by many readers. I have been able learn few new things from whatever I have read till now. I would like to inform you that I had purchased this book in India through www.firstandsecond.com. This is an Indian company located at Okhla in New Delhi. It is actually a subsidiary of a UK based company. They also offer a wide range of books many of which are not available at bookstores in India. But the books are costly and also they did not deliver the book within the stipulated time. I had received the book after almost 1 and 1/2 month. This book cost me Rs.1240/-. But here you can make payment without any credit card. Further, in as they are located in India you can always catch hold of them if something goes wrong. Buying from outside India is cheaper but involves the risk of packet never arriving. But I found the return worth the risk.

Have you tried Alibris?

Thanks Ms. Cluny! I have explored the www.alibris.com. They have the lowest international shipping rates for shipping a single book. If you buy more than book, then it is same. But I suggest that one should compare prices at both abebooks.com and alibris.com before placing order.

I have seen the bookcafe store located very close to my residence. But they sell books on printed price. However these sites sell books at much lower rate. Even after paying the hefty postal fee of say $9 per book, you will get it cheaper than any bookstores in India.
