I just ordered from @booksonlinepakistan
I ordered three books Holding Up The Universe, All the Bright Places and The Kite Runner.
Giving that I had ordered last Sunday and I received them this Friday I don't think it was that long a wait although most instagram pages I have bought from in the past tend to deliver within one or two days such as theblingspotstudio and theblankpage which is why I was expecting it earlier.
The books were super cheap and the total was Rs. 1350/- only.
The quality was not the best but honestly that was expected and they are definitely not second hand, however something that did concern me was the bit of dirt on the cover of Holding Up the Universe. Other than that everything was fine and it was satisfying purchase. I am still upset however about the lack of 'book' smell.

There has been an unfortunate increase in online bookstores in Pakistan selling pirated books. And if you are buying from them then you need to know that you are giving encouragement for a crime to be committed. Yes, book piracy is a crime which not many people realize. If you ask most of these online bookstores they will tell you they are copies or that the book is of good quality but not original. Know that when an organization sells copies of books the rightful money never goes to the author or their publisher. It goes to people who didn't put a single effort in producing that book.
If you have even a little respect for the authors please immediately stop buying from these bookstores. I know books can be expensive but then don't you spend thousands of Rupees in posh restaurants and branded clothing shops. So why not invest in books that will actually help the author make a living out of their hard work.
If you agree with it do share this post so we can get the message ahead and stop book thieves from preying on someone's lifetime of efforts.
