    Default Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language by Celce-Murcia


    Hello every one :)

    I want to ask you about this book. It was recommended to me but when I looked for it I found it too pricey although it might have the value of course!

    What's so confusing about this is the book being available in different prices, some might go above 100$ and some might be at 45$! < This low price is mentioned to have been available but I only found it at amazon.co.uk! And BTW it's a reasonable price for such an encyclopedic book!

    My question is, through your experience, from where do you recommend me to buy it?

    Could you suggest a website that can offer the book with this price? I need a website that you dealt with specially that offers linguistics books other than amazon?

    You might be wondering why not amazon, but I'm not in the UK and I face some difficulties with the shipping stuff when I order several books in a single order - if it was from one seller it'll be only one shipment, but if it was from amazon itself and there were several orders they'll be sent in more than one shipment because they might be shipped from different regions in the country which, as a result, makes for each single order a single shipping price not taken by Amazon but by Aramex!

    Anyway and away from my problems, I'm sure that you, as experts, know some good other alternatives in book selling market, don't you?


    Thanks in advance..

    I found this online bookstore aphrohead.com - not that cheap but acceptable and more importantly it has a huge number of books available

    Has any one tried buying from this site? What do you think of the customer service?

    I need your help PLEASE ..

    The cheaper price may be because it's second-hand.

    I've never used the Book Depository, but it looks legitimate- I would feel OK about trying it.

    I ordered the book from Book Depository for about 43$ but I saw it the day before I think it was 41$! This fast changing in prices makes me uncomfortable because when I checked the same book just a few minutes ago and guess what? It's 90$! What the HECK!

    Please could you do me a favor, I want you to check the book's page and see the cost that appears to you because I want to make sure about whether they change the price for all customers or it differs sometimes depending on you region!

    It's so weird!

    It's now
    $43.57! It keeps changing up and down! How come in less than 24 hours it becomes 90$ and then becomes lower again with 43.57$ while I bought it with $43.25 and found it before 2 dollars cheaper!

    What is going on! in a moment the price changes!

    Anyway, thanks Tdol for your help :)
