the trail of a family becoming Wishlist & Shipping cost

As many of you may know, I have a wishlist at In the past, I have received items from that list sent by a few gracious friends and family members. I also received gift certificates as gifts and honorarium.

But a recent event made me ponder if there is any alternative. My last order of books were charged over $30USD just for shipping! (I cancel the entire shipment at the end) This is really ridiculous as I can get most of the items with free shipping through or!

The only problem is that some items that has, the Canadian stores just don’t carry.

I tried to look for ways to export the wishlist to their Canadian counterpart, but I don’t think there is one. So here is what I think:

  1. If for any reason, you would like to sent me a gift certificate to buy books online. Send me one from or I don’t want to waste your generosity on some crazy shipping cost!
  2. If you know any open-platform wishlist site that allow people to link items to specific web-stores, please let me know. Specifically, I am looking for one that allow people to view my wishlist without creating an account or logging in.
