Great savings at Amazon.co.uk!

A while back I posted something about some fantastic discounts on Amazon.co.uk. Perusing the site this weekend, I realized that, unlike Amazon.com and Amazon.ca, you could still find incredible bargains on their British counterpart.

Here are a few examples: You can pre-order Erikson's Toll the Hounds at 30% off, while Reaper's Gale can be purchased at 30% to 35% off. There are discounts on all the Malazan volumes, by the way.

Some of the best bargains include Alastair Reynolds' House of Suns (45% off), Peter F. Hamilton's The Dreaming Void (50% off), Redick's The Red Wolf Conspiracy (45% off), and Joe Abercrombie's Last Argument of Kings (45% or 50% off). You can also pre-order Richard Morgan's The Steel Remains for less than 10 pounds, which seems to be quite a deal! Raymond E. Feist's Wrath of a Mad God can be bought at 42% off.

A quick search showed me that books by R. Scott Bakker are 25% off. Scott Lynch's debut and its sequel are 35% off. Guy Gavriel Kay's Ysabel is 34% off. Hal Duncan's Ink is 40% off. China Miéville's Un Lun Dun is 45% off.

Browse around and I'm persuaded that you'll find unexpected bargains that will make your "books to read" pile grow!;-) Click on this link to find out more!

Any potential savings for NA customers are negated by shipping costs.

Amazon US isn't offering a discount on Toll yet, but I expect to see it 30% off by the time it's published. They are, however, offering a 5% discount on all pre-orders (even mass market paperbacks).

Yeah I happily went through and created a cart the other day... Then the shipping to Australia doubled the whole order which made it worse than buying books here - which is bad enough, in Oz books are bloody damn expensive.

*sigh*

These deals are only appealing if you live in the UK and the rest of Europe.

For the rest of you, there's always my book giveaways!:p

Considering books in the UK are overpriced anyways, AmazonUK could afford to give discounts.

Also my local Waterstones book shop in the UK has just put all Steven Erikson paperbacks on "3 for 2" so you can get the first six books for £31.96 instead of £47.94

If you live outside the UK then the best place to order UK books is from The Book Depository:

http://www.bookdepository.co.uk

Prices are slightly higher than AmazonUK but FREE Worldwide shipping is included which makes the total price lower than Amazon. They generally don't do advance orders so you have to wait until just after a release date when they actually have stock.
