That's a Good idea Ravi.
The 25% discount will almost cover the package and mailing from ZSI, Calcutta to you and then on to the members who buy the book. That will be a very good deal. The members will then get the book home delivered for a bit more than the original cost price.
How about asking people to post their orders for the books here?
Or shall we wait until we have the complete list of books available at hand.
Both Marine and Freshwater.
