Re: QUERY> Purchasing books from the Buddha-Dharma Centre, Hong Kong

(I sent a version of this message to Dr Kellner by private mail, but since there is a public discussion I'll put it here.)

I have acquired books from them after great travail. I saw two problems:

1. Their slow office process: this can include response to orders and emails, and the calculation of costs (books plus postage). It is unclear who deals with book orders, and this person changed twice partway through my ordering process. My only suggestion is to be prompt yourself (unlike me) to try and minimise these effects. Expect it all to take months rather than days!
