Book Depository 24 hour Sale

Not sure where to put this, but have been in one before and picked up a few bargains.  And some that weren't but that was own fault. Due to start soon, depending on your time zones.

update by Arry to place in Book Bargains, and move the original subject in the body of the message

If only all the bargains worked in Oz.  Even lots of SFF Audible isn't allowed here because of publishing /recording rights in different countries.  I was happy because at long last Memory Sorrow and Thorn is coming to Audible.com. I pre-ordered DragonBone Chair straightaway, then later received new email to say I couldn't have it because I lived here. :'( :'( :'(

To get The Copper Promise and Iron Ghost in the US I had to get an app that gave me a UK IP and create a fake Amazon UK account.

I still can't get kindle bargains even though I have Amazon US and UK. I'm only part of "Rest-of-World "for some things  :(

We need a "buddy system". One of us orders the book where we are, and sends it to the other. Payment back to the originator via PayPal.

Sorta related: has anyone tried borderlinx? Got a marketing email from Paypal a while back about it, and it's really tempting - though we haven't really taken a look at the pricing. Basically it's a company that provides a physical US or UK address for you and cut shipping costs, so you can order stuff from amazon.com or .co.uk even if it wouldn't normally be available outside the country. Sometimes tech stuff is half the price in the US, so it might actually be worth it sometimes. Might have to if we want something that's a lot cheaper in the UK/US.

Great thought and would work if it was books, but it's audible the biggest problem and you can't send them to someone else. :) I can get any books I want earlier than here often, and not even pay Amazons huge o'seas delivery costs, because I go to Book Depository who deliver free.

So I don't even need borderlinx either.

Jmack, did you try out that special audio package you mentioned some time back and if so, how did it go? Can't remember the details.
