Where to get these books
- From the town library, it’s free! Here is their online catalogue.
- From the local shop. You can phone to check if they have the book or order it.
- From Wheelers, our main online book provider, who offer book credits to our school when you order (choose Mt Aspiring College at the checkout).
- From Whitcoulls, who provided the excellent list above, have shops in Queenstown and also offer online sales.
- Amazon of course have all the books of the creation, new and used, but the freight is often doubling the price of the book and it only says it at the checkout. Be careful! Amazon also offers the widest range of ebooks, but here again be aware that they cannot be read by many ereaders (Kobo, Sony, Laser), only by Kindle ereaders. They can however be read on any Ipad or computer-like tablet or computer, using a Kindle App or reading on the cloud.
- Finally, Book Depository established in tax-free Guernsey Island has unbeatable prices on new books and freight is free!
