Getting a book that was released in the UK from the US
« on: July 06, 2012, 09:43 AM »
I've been waiting for the sequel to one of my favorite books, Infinite Days since I found out there would be another book. It is called Stolen Nights and is by Rebecca Maizel. The first one came out 2010 and the next one has been pushed back time and time again and now will not be released until 2013!!! Really? Ugh! Anyway I found out (call me stupid cause I guess i never really paid attention enough to realise there were different release dates for different countries) that the Uk release date was July 5 and was super excited. I tried going to Amazon etc.. to order it, but it won't allow me to unless I have a UK address and credit card with said address. Does anyone have any ideas how to get around this or have the ebook they'd be willing to share (e-mail) with me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If that doesn't work, which it should because I use it a lot, try The Book Depository.

Or you can go get a prepaid credit card.
Log into Amazon, change your "Country" to UK.
Find a UK mailing address and change yours to that.
Enter the prepaid CC and buy it that way.
At least that's what I have heard.

I have done exactly what Drypen suggested many times and it works really well.  I just went to the white pages for the UK and looked up someone with my same last name and used their address.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Omg! Thanks so much you guys! That website looks like it will work out. I just tried to add the book to my basket and it worked. I will go back and look to see if I can get the ebook instead, but either way I am excited! The Amazon info is great as well. I tried switching countries etc.. with no luck before and had thought about the pre-paid credit card, but the address was the stopping point. Duh! Never even thought about your suggestion. =)

So excited right now! I was all prepared to buy this book from the site you gave me and was just waiting on my bank card (just opened a new acct) to come in the mail so I could order it. Anyway I search a few different sites a couple of times daily for this book and just found it! If you are interested let me know and I will give you the site where I found it. I'm not sure what the rules are today about posting links to other sites. =/

ok, I tried to send you a pm through this site, but it sends me to goodreads. I also tried to send you a message there with the link, but it says you're not accepting messages. I am going to request you as a friend and after (if) you accept me please message me and I will send you the link. Haha My name is Jamie. Unless there's an easier way to send it to you?
