You can add spoilers to messages. I'd never tried it before, but here's how you do it:

Write some text. Highlight the text. Then, in the text formatting toolbar you should see a smiley wearing sunglasses (it will be greyed out until you highlight something). Click that, preview if you want to check it's worked properly, then Submit Reply.

Amazon.co.uk have standard shipping charges for North America, so if you order from there you should only pay an extra £7 (I don't know if you'd pay extra customs/taxes). The main killer for US people seems to be the cost of the book itself, but that's the same for us Brits too.

As to reading spoilers, parlance, I like your earlier suggestion of having a spoilers thread, and trying to keep things out of the rest of the forum as much as possible, to allow people to read at their own speed, and those who have to wait to catch up. I think people here would do their best to work within that.

Thanks!

I've done that, but I've found that when people reply, they'll sometimes respond referring to spoilers and forget to use the tags. I thought a separate thread might be safer.

No, we don't pay VAT or any taxes, just the shipping. And you're right, it's the price itself that's the killer, it comes to something like $140 with shipping! My guess is *if* a US version of the deluxe is released, it will cost less...I'd guess $115 or so. And Amazon ships free within the US for orders over $25.

Its ridiculous the pains purchasers have to go thru with this to get what is best for themselves.

I will get the standard abridged version either second hand, heavily reduced or cheap paperback; paying £74 is plenty already so a further £18 is not practical.

How long do you think it will be before it starts appearing in charity shops/car boot sales? If I remember correctly 50 Shades was published in 2011 and didn't really surface until 2012 and I started seeing it round a lot last month, so roughly about a year?

 

Second hand probably around a year, a shop like Fopp might put it out heavily reduced at some point as they did with Living In The Material World (on sale for £3) about 6 months after release. Obviously this is the Beatles and highly anticipated but they have sold reduced Beatles books before (one being the paperback Anthology which I think was £5).

By having the deluxe its not a big deal, will take an age to get thru that anyway, but its obviously different if weighing up what way to go now.
