    Re: Bookpool

    They closed about a month ago.I suppose it's hard to compete with Amazon.
    It's a shame, they used to be fantastic for the UK, before Amazon you generally had to pay £1=$1 for computer books with no discount.
    Bookpool sold them in $ with 40% off and they originally did book-rate surface mail delivery which cost almost nothing if you could wait a few weeks. Then they changed their delivery to use DHL and the S+H was more than the book.
