Ordering books...

If I wanted a copy of HARD MAN by Al Guthrie, could I order it through Amazon's UK outlet and get it imported to me without much trouble? Do people do that? Would US Customs knock on my door to confiscate the copy?

I once bought a VHS tape from the UK and had to send it back since British VHS consists entirely of snow and static.

We've ordered in books from Amazon.co.uk, no issue. We also order in books from the US without much trouble. Of course, Hard Man will also be published in the US by Harcourt, if it hasn't been already.

Ah, many thanks. HARD MAN gets published in the US in early June. Of course, I'm in the middle of winding down the semester, but I might be able to make time for a good book before June and KISS HER GOODBYE made an impression me. Russel M. says this newest book is even better.

As Sandra says, it should be no trouble.

Also, British VHS is geared for PAL rather than US NTSC format. Which might not have had anything to do with what you saw, but still...

Russel's right.

And books aren't a problem. In FACT, I know of a DVD and game store that ships its good under the guise of them being books in order to pass through customs unmolested.
