When I moved to Delhi a year and a half ago, Strand Bookstore did not move with me. The consequence of that and the fact that my parking skills are dodgy under the best of conditions is that my book shopping is almost entirely online now.

This then is my guide to buying books online. I have, so far, tried to buy books from three websites – www.indiaplaza.in (what was formerly known as Fabmall), www.landmarkonthenet.com and www.flipkart.com. To make it all scientific and marginally less floozy, I’ve classified the process into 4 categories and assigned a grade from 1 to 5 (5 being the highest) to each of these.

1. Availability
2. Ease of ordering/cancelling
3. Price
4. Customer service

Read on to find out which website passed the test with flying colours. Where do you buy your books from?
