I have received tremendous enquiries on how to acquire the Aya’s Diary, as evidenced from this entry of my blog. I also realised that a number of you who commented here or emailed me are keen in getting the book but are unable to because it is unavailable online.
Well good news for you guys, because i might be willing to help some of you in in getting this book for yourself. As I was able to get a copy at my own local bookstore (Kinokuniya), I might be willing to place a few orders and you might be one of the lucky ones in purchasing it through me.
However, nothing is concrete yet. I’m currently very busy at the moment and i have doubts that they might still have copies of the book available. Even if they run out of stock, it might take a while for them to place an order from their Kinokuniya Japan Branch and have it arrive to Singapore. Even so, i might not be able to fullfull all orders if the demand are overwhelming.
So for those interested here is what i want you to do:
First, payment. Payment would most likely be done through paypal. So if you guys have a paypal account, it will be a great help for me to acquire the funds for the purchase of the book.
Second, price. The price have not been set yet. But tentatively, it would be anywhere between 35SGD to 40SGD, excluding shipping costs. That translates roughly to about USD25 to USD30, EUR 16 to EUR 20 EUR, 13 GBP to 16 GBP (see currency converter)
Third, Shipping. The price of shipping will be made known to you, once its been confirmed that I would be selling it to you. If you agree to the final costs (book + shipping) the transaction will proceed and i would ship the book to your address immediately. The shipping cost should not be too expensive, as a portion of the total price of the book stated above has already been taken into account. The problem is that there are varying costs associated when shipping to different countries, therefore adjustments have to be made.
So, if you are truly interested, do email me, stating that you are serious in getting yourself a copy, and do state you country of origin, so that i would roughly know where i have to ship it to. I just need your country of origin, not the entire address, so that i can start finding out the shipping costs to you country. Rest assured that i will reply to your email, to acknowledge your interest and who knows you might be the lucky one 🙂
Ill have more updates in the coming weeks. So do stay tune.
