I hope that you enjoy your Reader.
It is likely that you will be charged about £40 because vat is payable and Parcelforce charge for collecting it on the government's behalf.
This came as a bit of an unwelcome surprise to me, but I still think that the Reader was worth it.

Very good. Remember that the 22nd is a national holiday in the US (Thanksgiving Day.)

(PS: Fixed the title from UK to US)

Thanks Patricia, yes I paid the £40 tax yesterday I was expecting it! Its still not good but the device I feel is still relatively cheap.

It cost me $410 but actually because of the currency at the moment buying US items works out very cheap for us in the Uk.

I think me paying $410 is about equivalant to an american having to pay about $250.


Good point I forgot that 22nd is thanksgiving day. even more impressive really.
