I then bought a $10 egiftcard and sent it to myself, this worked fine, payment accepted etc. Only problem was the book cost $10.76 with the sales tax!!!!!

So it is stuck, because they can't take the extra 76c from my Diners.

I'm definitely going to get this to work
To buy books at B&N you also need to have an USA IP-address.
For this you need to use a VPN like Hotspot Shield (free) or Alwaysvpn.com ($8.50).
Using the USA address as shipping and billing address, and the VPN for an USA ip-address, you should be able to buy books with your UK credit card.

I have no problem buying books from B&N here in the Netherlands using Alwaysvpn.com and my Dutch Visa card.
