But I can resist! £2.99 ($4.99) is still way above my average price for buying ebooks.
Good heavens - it's about half my average price .

£2.99 is reasonable but not impulse-buy territory, thankfully. I've managed to restrain myself since my second purchase, but I have an ever-growing list of possibilities.

I tried that but no go. Amazon must read my IP address.

Might I suggest a short holiday? Send your computer via tunnelbear or some other vpn.

Thanks for pointing out this sale! I suspect I might end up spending quite a bit. I believe that this link should list most of the £2.99 titles: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?rh=n:3416...y,p_36:299-299

Thanks for tunnelbear suggestion. It allows me to search prices but can one have 2 Kindle for PCs on the same computer?

Yeah, that would be the standard price, converted. 4.99 in pommie, in monopoly money.

Do you do that by de-regestering one for the other?

Yes, from the menu option.
I rename the Kindle documents folder first, out of paranoia that it would delete all the downloaded books, I don't know if it actually would. So I have separate .UK and .US Kindle documents folders and rename the right one in as needed.

My experience is that deregistering and reregistering K4PC changes the encryption key (ie it's treated as a new "device" in your list of Kindle devices), so that none of the books you downloaded previously can be read without re-downloading them.

Yes, no problem if they are for different users. Assuming you use windoze, I don't know about ios or linux. Just set up another user (I call mine America ) and log in as admin, download kindle for pc and install to your new user account. Register the new kindle install and your new amazon account to the country you want to "visit" using a previously unused email address and a genuine mailing address. Make one up, but use a real town, street, and postcode that matches it.
Harry is right about the encryption key, much better to have two separate installs. Then disinfect as required, save to a new location which can be in "my documents" for either user as long as both are admin accounts. Calibre can be used for management by either user, but you will have to set up plugins for both users.

You will need to sort out a payment method as well. USunlocked is a bit pricey for small purchases, I usually only get freebies on my "American" side, but I expect a gift card would work, let me know if you try it please.

Good gravy!

They don't make it easy. All this for a £1.89 book. Not sure it's worth it.

For one book, no. For lots and lots of books, I think it is
