When I say on-line I mean Amazon. Amazon has a great service. They have a generous offering of titles, awesome prices, fast delivery and the best on-line ordering system out there. I have nothing but good things to say about their service.
However today I got this email:
As you've previously had orders delivered to Portugal, we wanted to let you know that our delivery options to Portugal are changing. From April 3, 2014, FREE Super Saver Delivery will no longer be available. You'll have the option of Standard or Priority Delivery for orders being delivered to Portugal.
More information about international delivery rates and times can be found here.
We strive to provide our European customers the greatest possible selection at low prices and hope to see you again soon.

This will make me either buy one less book per month (it would take it down to 2) or start buying locally again.
I better start searching for my LCS's customer card.
Goodbye Amazon.co.uk its been great knowing you.
