Re: If I buy a Kindle, can I read any book on Amazon.com that I purcha

I have another question relating to ebooks for the Kindle (or even in general).

Are there region coding restrictions? (I've had a quick look around the net and there seems to be quite a few comments to suggest that there are)

I've ordered (physical) books from the US before now and had thought that having an e-reader would make things a little quicker and easier. I suppose there is licensing issues to think about though.
I think it's global, or so it says on Amazon.

Only certain books are offered through the Kindle service based on your country/region as set in the Kindle. So, yes, it is essentially region-locked.

I did notice a drop down box for country in the ebook section. That's a bit of a pain.

Oh well.
