    Ordered books and dvds before. Everything arrived w/o any delay. However, some of my friends have had packages get lost before or their orders just disappeared after payment.

    Bought frm Amazon Japan. No fuss, no muss.

    My only complaint was that my package came, and when I opened it, the plastic wrapper wrapping my books was already slit (conspiracy theories anyone? ).

    I've had more than 10 shipments of items (CDs and DVDs) from Amazon.com (US version) over the past half-decade and have never had a problem with any of them. Buy in confidence. =^)

    Maybe inspected by customs?

    Luck of the draw. Singapore censor will inspect sample of items from Amazon, especially if it is listed as DVDs. If they do that, then, it takes longer.

    Amazon is by far the best and most reliable on line retailer out there.

    I guess so. DVDs I understand. Maybe see if there are pornographic hardcore stuff.
    But... Books?

    riceball has quite a decent collection. i think they might even bring in a book for you if they don't have stock. go check with them.

    I totally agree with Terence and would endorse supporting Riceball too. If he can't find it, then Amazon is very reliable and has vast resources. We've ordered several times from Amazon, and have everything shipped by Vpost, they're fast and efficient.
