Last week I decided to order some books from Amazon France's website.
Not sure if this is always the case but my order arrived very quickly and I didn't have to pay any wackadoo customs fees.
I have heard horror stories of expats here ordering from Amazon USA and having to pay fees that are more than the value of the books. Plus with the dollar so weak I would get killed with the exchange rate. At least now it's a Euro to Euro transaction.
So despite my shaky French skills, I will continue to buy my English language books from France instead of the U.S. Not sure if all the English language books on my Wishlist are available but at least several are.
I'm so excited.
