Online book retailer The Book Depository has launched a special discount for Irish book buyers

The Book Depository, which already offers free worldwide shipping, is offering an extra 10% discount to Ireland-based buyers if they use a specific code when purchasing. The offer is also exclusive of VAT.

The code is valid until 17th December. Earlier in the month, Irish book chain Easons launched a three for two front of store Christmas offer, while Irish online bookstore Kenny's, which also offers free shipping, has a range of discounted titles.

The Bookseller reported last week that the Irish book market has slumped by more than 16% in value and volume terms this year. For the year to 30th October, Nielsen BookScan figures revealed sales down by more than 16% to €103m. The country is currently facing an economic bailout.

PS. The Book Depository also has some great offers on my crime novels and thrillers.
