I used 2x book gift vouchers some time ago.  I just waited for the mailout discounts.  Vouchers have a 24 month expiry.  Re: discounts.  Maybe have a look at Book Depository many books are about half price and free postal, doesn't get import tax unless you get over $300NZ.  There's also Amazon with cheapish postal.  I just used the vouchers here b/c they were gifts.  I've even bought Lonely Planet books and general textbooks from BD.  If yo are wanting to get NZ books then they might be cheapest here and the rest of the world just sucks it up ... compared to what other books costs.

Well I got a $200 voucher from TM for $156 and if I buy online from Whitcoulls the book I want so badly is about $30 cheaper than buying in store, so makes it pretty cost effective.

I only wish they had stock so I could enjoy it between xmas and new year!

If you are interested in cooking the detail and colour in this book are simply equisitite.

Now to find something similar for cooking asian food.
