Default Re: let's leave amazon

I'm in full agreement. I still use amazon but more of a last resort these days. To my shame, years ago I was one of those terrible people who took the kids into Waterstone's to see what books they were interested in and went home and ordered them from amazon.

BD have their problems though - delivery can take a very long time and if you don't think to ask them about it within a certain amount of time, you can lose your money and get no books. It seems their availability isn't always as indicated on the site. I think they are generally good though, so will be working to improve on any failings that they currently have. It's a shame they now operate out of the US and are subject to the Kindle war there.
