I'm surprised you were allowed to purchase the books in the first place.

I also live outside the States. Just yesterday I purchased five ebooks from B&N. First time in three years I'd bought anything at B&N and the CC I had on file had expired. When I attempted to enter a new one, the site said it had to have a US billing address.

No problem for me. I simply entered my new (non-US) CC number, kept the old (US) billing address, and was able to purchase and download my books. Apparently, B&N doesn't actually verify the billing address against the card. Try entering your international VISA number and make up a US billing address.

However, the books I bought weren't DRM-encumbered (and this discussion reaffirms for me why I never buy DRM-encumbered ebooks; I'll go to the darknet first), so perhaps that's why I was able to download them.
