Three Tips To Choose A Trusted Dealer For Your Automotive Stuff

More and more car owners are opting to order spare parts from online stores. Online sites are a great option for people who want to reduce costs and get the good quality products delivered at their door step. Online shopping saves a lot of time and money invested in searching for good garage, which sells genuine spare parts. This trend has led to the mushrooming of a number of online sites that deal in vehicle spare parts. But it is important for the customers to differentiate between fake sites and genuine ones like Automotive Stuff. The genuine sites offer good quality spares from trusted manufacturers.

Tips to selected trusted online sites for automotive spares


Always verify the quality standards of the different parts supplied by the online dealer. Check the reviews of previous clients and ratings for the store on different sites that offer dealer ratings. Have a talk with the sales representatives to get a better understanding of the product and the services offered by the store.


Compare the prices of the replacement parts. You can search online websites and visit some spare parts stores in your neighbourhood to get an idea of the prevailing market price. However, do not depend only on the price; quality of the product is also an important aspect, when you are investing in replacement parts. Good online stores like Automotive Stuff offer high quality products at lowest market price.


Delivery time and return policy are also important indicators of the trust worthiness of an online store. Reputed online stores like Automotive Stuff, supply the parts on the promised date. The easy returns and refund policy safeguards the buyers interest, if they are not satisfied with the quality of the product or if the product is not delivered with required specifications.

DNF - I should have known.
Dime Store Magic - Kelley Armstrong

I didn't really like Paige in the second installments of the Otherworld series (arrogance meet stupid and her colleague weakness), but I thought that might have been due to Elena being such a cool heroine, so I decided to give Paige a chance.


But nope.


I got really impatient with her - not a good situation if you have to roll your eyes at the protag every second page.


She is naive, bordering on stupid. She doesn't handle any situation well. She comes across as a quite weak idiot. The story evolves around her mistakes in judgement.


And I am not interested in this.


That is not why I read Urban Fantasy. So I did myself a favour and quit.

Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix, designed by Andie Reid, illustrated by Michael Rogalski
Horrorstor - Grady Hendrix

Horrorstör is a ghost story that takes place in an Ikea knockoff called Orsk. Amy, one of the main characters, is low on cash, convinced she's about to be fired, and desperate to transfer to a different Orsk. She thinks her boss, Basil, has it in for her, which is why she's horrified when he calls her in for a special meeting. It throws her off a bit that Ruth Anne was also called in. Ruth Anne is a model employee, so why would anyone want to fire her?

As it turns out, Basil isn't planning on firing anyone, at least not right now. No, Basil has a problem. It appears that someone has been hanging around Orsk after hours and breaking things. In one instance, the person even pooped on a Brooka (sofa). The security cameras are no good - whoever's doing this has been limiting their activities to sometime between 2 and 7:30 AM, the time period when the store lights power down to twilight mode. Basil figures that he, Ruth Anne, and Amy can sweep the store and either find the culprit or at least prevent them from damaging anything else before the store's general manager and Regional arrive in the morning. This is a horror novel, so of course things don't go nearly that well.

Several people I follow on Booklikes read this a while back. I kept seeing the cover art pop up on my Dashboard, and the slightly creepy "catalog page" look of it intrigued me. It took me a while, but I finally requested an interlibrary loan copy.

I've never been to an Ikea and was a little worried that that would interfere with my enjoyment of the book. Thankfully that didn't seem to be the case, although having experience with big-box stores in general probably helps. Horrorstör gave readers an exhaustive employee's eye view of Orsk and how it operated, going so far as to include a floor plan, order form, and product images and descriptions (which took an unnerving turn later in the book).

The details about the haunting didn't strike me as being very exceptional or original, and the things that happened to the employees in the store occasionally caused me to pause and wonder how they hadn't died of shock yet. The thing that made Horrorstör more than just an average horror novel for me was the way it incorporated Orsk details. One of my favorite parts involved Amy being trapped inside a Liripip wardrobe. It mattered that it was that particular kind of wardrobe and that Amy was a store employee with special knowledge of its particular problems.

Hendrix did a great job at emphasizing the creepiness of an empty Orsk, with its peculiar layout that required customers to go through the store in a particular way. Even before the real horror started, I found myself getting creeped out by Amy and Ruth Anne's efforts to sweep the store for intruders.

The characters were a little thin, and their actions didn't always match the background info readers were given - for example, I found Basil's actions at the end a little difficult to believe considering he's his little sister's primary caretaker. That said, I still loved this. Hendrix left just enough loose ends that I could imagine a Planet Baby sequel, although it's probably for the best that, as far as I know, no sequel has been planned.

A Good Classic Story
Corduroy - Don Freeman

When I see the book, "Corduroy", I get a nostalgic feeling. It brings back memories of my childhood sitting in the elementary classroom listening to this story while each classmate passed around a stuffed Corduroy bear. I had this book in my personal childhood collection and it remains a staple now. Corduroy is a stuffed animal left on a toy store shelf to wonder when someone will come along and take him home. One little girl comes along and wants to take him home, but her mother says no due to his missing button on his overalls. Corduroy was so sad so he sets off into the mall to find himself a new button! To his disappointment, he doesn't find one, but that doesn't stop a very determined little girl. This story is a sweet reminder that everyone has a place and someone to love them no matter who you are. "Corduroy" can be used at the beginning of the year when students are making new friends and might be a little nervous. This story represents how friends can make us feel special and comfort us.

Reading progress update: I've read 30%.
The Store - Bentley Little

I had to look at when this was published because the more I listen, the more I feel like this book is just weird commentary on the changing of independently owned businesses, to corporate run businesses. I don't feel the horror aspect of it yet. It just feels... dated. 


I'm going to give it a bit more time, and then decide whether to DNF or not.
