    There's not going to be anything cheaper in the US with international shipping.

    always find it more expensive after shipping fees, though US stores do have better prices in my experience

    I would expect Amazon to be cheapest in general due to their volume.

    But every time I've compared price between Amazon and ibooks has been to the cent exact.

    Kindle books give more flexibility. Between Kindle device, desktop app, web app, iOS and android apps.

    A lot of ebook prices are set by the publisher. In that case, the pricing will be the same no matter where you purchase it from. Many of the ebooks on Amazon are like this.

    Thanks! I lurked around here for YEARS before I finally started posting anything, so I just made it to 500 posts a few days ago even though I joined in 2009. Then it took me a couple days to decide what I wanted to use for my avatar. It's like a major life decision ya know...not to be taken lightly ;)

    Amazon UK normally price matches Kindle Books, so the Kindle Store is usually cheapest.

    It's also the best ebook platform at the moment IMO.
