Question: Best way to buy trek books outside of US?

Hi. As I'm new to Trek novels and because I live in the Netherlands, I'm wondering...

Do you have any suggestions of where I can buy Star Trek paperbacks or e-books? (besides amazon, bol.com)

thanks!

I'm from the Netherlands as well, and I get all my books from bol.com.

*edit* Only noticed the 'besides bol.com' now. Oops.....

They belong to amazon these days and I have never used them myself, but bookdepository.com has free worldwide delivery.

^ I use Book Depository. In terms of Trek books, at least, I've always found them very reliable. I now always get the latest release pretty much as soon as it becomes available, where before I was about a month behind most of the rest of the forum.

@Mage: makes sense, bol has a many of them

@Defcon & DerangedNasat: thanks for that suggestion, Book Depository seems to have good prices.

Kobobooks.com also seems to have most ebooks.

I've found what I was looking for. Thanks!!

- - Edit:
And Proxis.com has about 15 recent star trek paperbacks.

Re: Question: Best way to buy trek books outside of US?

My only issue with bol.com is pricing. I try and pre-order a lot of books before they are released, because even with shipping they are only 8,50 euro. However, sometimes, at the day of release, they can be as much as 11 euros, and then go down 2 or 3 euros a few days later.
I asume this has to do with their supplier, but it does kinda suck.
