Where to buy English ebook when living in Europe (not UK)

I was wondering if anybody could advise me where I can buy novels written in English when I live in Europe (more precisely in Denmark)?

Danish bookstores as saxo.com and g.dk have a rather limited selection and each book cost a small fortune.

I have previously used e.g. Waterstones and WHSmith but these will no longer sell me books because I live outside the UK. Amazon is not an option as I don't have a Kindle.

So what do I do?

Have you tried Kobobooks?

I've had no difficulty ordering from them (from France, but with a US credit card - billing address on the card is still France, though). Their selection is maybe not as extensive as the Sony Bookstore in the US, though their prices are better on many items and they send out periodic coupons which seem to be applicable to just about any book on their site. I also find they have an interesting mix of US and UK books that generally aren't available through the US sources.

Most of us do not have a US credit card

Have you considered "Kindle for PC" for Amazon books ?
You might convert them to other formats e.g. ePub.

I have bought books from The Book Depository in the past - worth a try, they give their prices in euros.

I use Kobobooks in Sweden without a problem (so far). However, they're a bit limited.

I use an EntroPay virtual credit card and a UK address to buy from WHSmith.

EntroPay charges 5% up front, but they are a UK-based credit card and they don't care what address you use with retailers.
