Dear Jane,

Thank you for your email.

I would like to inform you that our digital publishers have blocked eBook sales to international destinations outwith the UK and Republic of Ireland. Until we have permission to sell beyond these borders you will, unfortunately, be unable to purchase eBooks from Waterstones online. I do apologise for this current situation. I have raised your query with our Head Office for their consideration and hope to contact you soon with more information..

Thank you for your patience and please accept our apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,

Devon Walsh

Very inconvenient and unsuitable.

With you all the way on the service - but I like bookshops and paper and hardbacks and paperbacks and holding books and eating or drinking whilst reading them and moving about with them .

AND NOT a gadget or anything like that -- associated with reading. I also like writing letters with a fountain pen.
And I like receiving letters and I like actually talking on the telephone.I used to like doing this whilst smoking a fag and drinking a glass of wine. I don't smoke anymore and the wine analogy doesn't work either. But still. Memories. NOT ALL BAD.

I am an out and proud DINOSAUR.I am GLAD TO BE D
