I think its more reasonable to order from acma. Considering order from Amazon (cheapest shipping) will take around 2 weeks, order from Acma also 2 weeks. Some more Acma is cheaper. The funny thing is that if you order from NatGeo directly, each book cost $30 plus S&H. Total cost way too expensive. Amazon cheaper, but I suspect Amazon earn their profit from the S&H also.

For amazon. I have done some calculation, for cheapest S&H:
1 book $21 + $11.98 = $32.98 each book $33
5 books $105 + $31.94 = $136.94 each book $27
10 books $ 210 + $56.89 = $266.89 each book $26
All currency in US dollar. So if we can get 5 people to order, each book will cost S$49
So far everytime I order from eshop, they never charge me any tax. If many people want, I can arrange MO.

That depends on the IRAS and custom, Amazon.com puts the value of the items shipped on the box, and if it exceeds US$200 or some amount, they will bill the GST to the receiver, I kena twice before liao. So YMMV.
