Ebooks are great but somehow even more restricted. With a paper book, noone can tell you "we just don't ship to another region".


Actually, there are plenty of places I've found online that say that, I'm afraid (especially in Northern Europe). The laws might not prevent them from being allowed to sell you the paper book, but they nevertheless can and do decide it's not worth it to them to serve customers in a broader geographic region.

Well, at least it shouldn't be a trouble inside the EU. The EU laws don't prevent them from discriminating some countries inside EU (basically, the shops just changed their tags in the delivery fee tables from "worthless non eu countries" to "worthless, second rate eu countries" without any change of prices) but they are no longer allowed to not ship to other EU countries unless they choose not to ship to any foreign country at all.

This is actually good for people outside the EU as well. There are many intermediary services that live of smoothing out the way between the seller and the customer. You can for example have something shipped on an American adress and have the company there send it to your home adress here for a better price than the original vendor asks. And there are surely companies that go the opposite way, even though they are likely to be less widely known.

Deastore: I have today received the book I ordered from Deastore.


I checked back, and I ordered it on 4th October, so it has taken 3 weeks and 6 days.
I got a shipping notice about 2 weeks after ordering, and hoped it might arrive about a
week after that, or sooner hopefully. It's taken a bit longer. I wasn't waiting
urgently for the book; only a bit worried in case it might have gone astray.



Anyway, on a positive note, it was very well packed and in very good condition. A brand
new book in fact.
(It was Assimil "Dänisch Ohne Mühe").

Does Deastore no longer sell books in French, German and Spanish? What a shame. They used to be a great resource.

Wow, that must have happened in the past few weeks. Yes, a shame. There's still a good selection available from
www.bookdepository.com, though.

Great!!! today I noticed that ibs.it requires an Italian credit card for buying e-books from now on... but maybe this site can replace it for me now.

Noooooooooooo!!!! where am I going to buy French and Spanish books from now on? Bookdepository really doesn't have everything I want, these languages aren't obviously a top priority, and amazon delivery fees are expensive :-( thanks for the info though.

I was about to respond in the same way, regarding IBS! Amazon UK has a decent Italian selection at least, but I'm not sure how it is for other countries.
