Silly question I know but now we are in Spain do I still order off the UK site and have it posted out here? Do the items arrive OK or do they wander around the ether never to arrive???!!

I order from amazon all the time and have never had a problem with delivery over here - just change the address when you place the order

some market place items can not be sent to Spain though - I think its the seller who chooses that option as to whether they will or wont post stuff overseas

Hey Sue,

There is a great English book shop in Calpe. On the Miro (high) street. Why not pay them a visit first

I order from UK Amazon and have only had one package go missing, the customer service were great they just re-issued the book and cd although I did have it sent to UK address the 2nd time but that was only because family were due out. Last book I ordered I received it 4 days after I ordered it....




This is a good place to order books in English, they are based in Germany so postage was cheaper and paid in Euros. WWW/english-book-service.com

The name of the book store is: BookWorld Espana Calpe

The shop assistants are English and it's got loads of books and if they don't have what you're after, you can order it from them.

Description:
Suppliers of new books, greeting cards, games and gift wrapping. At Centro Comercial Perlamar Calpe.
Contact Details:

Also, at the News Cafe (one floor up from the Mas Y Mas supermarket) Plaza Central in Calpe, they do a book exchange. If you bring in a book to exchange it is €1.50 and if you don't, then it's €3.00.

They don't have a massive selection, but once in a while I find a good read there

I gotta tell you though, they seemed quite pricey, but then again we buy either off ebay or at the local markets around here

Yes, that is true!

The prices are a bit high, but we have found that when we buy off the web, the postage costs are incredibly high, especially for books.

We also buy from the markets from time to time and also exchange with friends very regularly.

Now that you reminded me......Sue, on Wednesdays there is a Rastro type market in Calpe that also does second hand books. It is near the Mas Y Mas supermarket - Plaza Central.

Thanks Mitzyboy
