I do agree about Amazon, though since books are zero-rated this may be less of an issue for some. Also I notice that a lot of independent bookstores use Amazon marketplace, as well as Alibris and Abebooks marketplaces. I think in future I will post links to a comparison site (e.g. booksprice.co.uk, bookfinder.com, isbns.net), and let people make their own choice.

Hi have still not made it to a meet up yet, sorry, but I would like to suggest for those who have not, to read 'The Seat Of the Soul' ~ Gary Zukav

I'm sick of Amazon too (though I have great sympathy for their staff) so I've made my last 2 second hand purchases through Blackwells which also has a second-hand option
Though the website sends you a message saying your book will be suppled within 10 days I got notification of posting in both cases the next day.

Alibris is a great alternative to the unethical, tax-dodging, slave-driving Amazon empire for books/music :
abebooks.co.uk and The Book Depository are owned by Amazon booooohoooooo!!!!!
Just wondering if the link to Amazon can at all be avoided ;-)
