Buying throught the Connect store - UK?

Hi all,

Is anyone able to tell me how to make purchases on the Sony Reader software in the UK? I can see "eBook Store" on the left of the screen but when I click it I don't get any type of store, simply links to online stores. Here's a screenshot of what I see:



Does anyone else have this issue? Sorry if I'm just being a noob on this, but I've looked around a bit and not found anything!

EDIT: Damn title typo, that's gonna bug me!

I loaded the American software. But you can't purchase books with a UK credit card. There are kind people on this website who are willing to purchase Sony gift vouchers for you via Paypal. This allows you to purchase through the store - they are often more expensive though than many other estores.

Ok thanks for the info Rachel. I'm after a David Baldacci book, The Collectors. It's part of a 4 part series and waterstones and other uk bookstores only do the other 3!! Ridiculous!

Some CCs do work in the US Sony ebook store (Edit -> Preferences -> Region - United States) if you fill in your address as best you can (I put my country in the 2nd address line) and then select country - USA, some state and a correct postal code (I used NY - 10001).
