Buying poker books in the UK
After ChuckTs recommended that I try the Harrington tournament books, I looked at a few of my usual options:
- I did a search on Kelkoo, which brought up two book retailers at about £26 each
- did an eBay search, which gave me either new ones for about £18 delivered, or second hand for about half that, by the time you include delivery, but no guarantee of what price you would win the auction at (or if you would win the auction)
- looked on Amazon, who could do them new for £9.38 + £2.75 P+P = £12.13 delivered
The thing that seemed odd to me was that the Marketplace retailers that were the cheapest were actually shipping these books all the way from the USA! How can it make sense that the cheapest way to buy a book in the UK is to buy it from someone that is in the US, and is going to use UPS or a similar courier to deliver it to you in the UK?
Anyway, what I really started this thread to discuss was - do any of you know places where these books can be obtained at very good prices, please, or is Amazon generally accepted to be the cheapest?
I don't mind it being second-hand, but I'm not going to go rummaging through endless car boot sales or household goods auctions trying to find it...
