Amazon Global Store

Need a book that’s on Amazon.com but not on Amazon.uk? Amazon now have a searchable Global Store giving UK customers access to goods from around the world, with overseas shipping, tax and UK customs charges all pre-calculated. It’s pretty empty at present, though, with no search results at all for simple things like “tablet” or “jacket” or “book”. Seriously Amazon, don’t do the mega-publicity thing until the store is up. But it may improve in the future and, by encouraging U.S. sellers to sell outside the U.S., give access to otherwise unobtainable paper books.
