At least that would make sense to me.
Well, in the web you can do so.
On your PC, you can log into Amazon.de and Amazon.com as you please. You don't have to sign out off one to sign into the other. You, in parallel, can purchase on both websites in the respective currencies. And your books appear in your defined account.
