Thank you for these links! I have been looking for some books and can only find them on one website. Hopefully I can find them in one of these.



By the way, how did you find all of these? And dont take this the wrong way but do you work?

I can tell!

The main reason I am on here is because there are people on here who I can learn different things from. I am a history major and my love of the past has brought me here.

It's nice to have history lovers around. The book club choice for next month is The Marlborough House Set by Anita Leslie; it's a really interesting book about the people close to Edward VII when he was Prince of Wales. If you can get hold of a copy, we'd love to see you in the thread when we open it in a couple of weeks.

I have two good tips on good online book shops in Scandinavia:

Denmark - SAXO.com - boghandel med 1.700.000 bøger, studiebøger, engelske bøger, kogebøger, vinbøger, rejsebøger (huge)
Sweden - Bokus bokhandel - när du ska köpa böcker på nätet (huge, also delivers abroad)

Oh, great!! As a french, and as a book-lover, be sure I'll use this new bookstore! Even if there is nothing better than going to a REAL bookstore, smelling REAL books, touching them, reading some pages, taking time to choose one... :)
