The Book Depository, the British answer to Amazon.com, has made it possible to share personal Wish Lists on-line.
So, an experiment: I've moved seven books from my Amazon list to the B.D. list.
There are several advantages to this change. . .if it works.
First, the B.D. ships free worldwide. International shipping from the U.S. usually runs about $13.
Second, since the books are delivered from within the E.U. marketplace, there will be no duty charge on my end. Duties run from about $10-$50 depending on the declared value of the books.
Third, books from the B.D. arrive within 10 days from the U.K. It can take 6 weeks to get them from the U.S. . .if they arrive at all.
The only disadvantage: B.D. doesn't sell used books, so their prices are a bit higher than Amazon's.
Anyway, let's see how it goes!
NB. In the top right hand corner there's a drop down menu that allows you to select a currency. The Euro is the default currency for my server. It might be the dollar for an American server. Be sure and change it to the dollar. . .no need to add conversion charges!
