Buying books from Amazon-Its arrived! was created by maggies mum
I vaguely remember someone mentioning buying books form Amazon.com

But I can't remember if it was better to buy from the US or the UK.

Which works out cheaper, and how do they work out the exchange rate?

What do you do?:confused:

I tend to buy mine from US BUT check out fishpond.co.nz first and see if they have it. I have had very good service from them and their range of books is fantastic. Being NZ based the delivery is quicker and no faffing around with exchange rates :)

What does the postage work out as? And how long does a package take to arrive?

Just looking at Amazon now. Taking it's time loading.

Personally I'd go for Good Books, I find the US postage to here is pricey

Yeah I'm leaning that way, as that price includes shipping. Just doing a comparison to see anyway.

Amazon would be cheaper, not sure what the shipping cost would be though. Looks like if you get your order over $25 you qualify for free shipping :)

Going with Good Books, got fed up with Amazon, too slow to load, showed me stuff I didn't want to see and then I couldn't find the checkout! So due to my very low patience level I closed the page!
