    Attention someone in the UK...

    I am looking for a set of books by a British Author called Lauren Henderson. The books are called:

    The Strawberry Tattoo
    Freeze My Margarita
    The Black Rubber Dress
    Dead White Female
    Too Many Blondes

    I would be interested in getting the original British covers of these books. I would prefer if the covers were all similar (the same style). Does anyone here work in a bookstore in England or know have a friend who works in one? I would be willing to pay someone some extra cash by check or Paypal (including the price of the books of course) to get these books and mail them to me.

    Anyone interested? Or does anyone have a better suggestion? Please post the prices of the books before you buy them...

    Here is a link to a page about these books. They have pictures of them.

    I looked there after I posted the link but I don't think they would ship to the USA would they? Isn't that why they opened the UK version to begin with? So that UK people could order from Amazon?

    I have bought from the US Amamzon before, it is just more expensive to ship and it takes longer. So I assume they opened the UK one because they have a UK based warehouse so it is quicker and cheaper to ship to the UK. Also, it helps when it comes to customer confidence and branding.

    Not sure - I regularly order from the US one - don't see why it shouldn't work the other way...

    I might email them and ask, but I want to make SURE that I get the UK covers as they are the ones that I really want.

    No, I haven't tried to email them yet. I'm sort of leery about doing it that way as I wouldn't be sure of getting the right ones. I would really rather have someone that is actually from there help me out.

    Creole, I'm due in London on Thursday. I go there a couple of times a month to help out with a charity I'm involved with. Anyway, I have pass a rather large bookshop on my way to the office. I could have a look for you if you like.

    I could see if they have them on Thursday and let you know the prices if they do, then buy them on my next visit to London (2nd July) if you want.

    You can get the money to me via Western Union.

    Let me know, ok?

    Yes I did....and I looked at the web page to see what the covers looked like. The first two that she wrote seem to have different covers to the rest, but maybe they've been re-printed with new covers on.

    I'll take all the details with me on Thursday and have a look out for them, then let you know. If they don't have them, I can ask about ordering them if you like. If the books are still in print, they should be able to get them.

    That's pretty sweet of you Saz.

    Softy!

    Any chance you can pick me up one of those "London Hats" that Richard Branson sells Joey in the end of series 5 friends (The One in London)?

    Kidding!

    Hard to put into words really, H. Basically it means he's being cheeky or stepping out of line. Pushing his luck!

    KMxRetro - which part of Exeter are you from? That's my neck of the woods y'know. My 'home' is in Silverton - towards Tiverton [I'm just at Uni in Southampton].

    That's Fergie baby!
