is now billing in the currency of your choice?  I just went over there last night to see if they had a cookbook that would take Amazon 2-3 weeks to ship and I saw that you can choose your currency and that they bill in the currency of your choice. I about did a little dance -- no more foreign currency fees?  Ooooooooo!

So, I ordered the book I wanted and noted there were some Plaidys that would be released later this year and you can pre-order!  I think I love this site even more than I used to...

Oh, that's great! When I first saw your subject, I immediately thought they might have started charging for shipping, lol. Whew. It was good news instead of bad, lol.

Oh gee--thanks a LOT! (she said drily.) LOL I used to always have my currency converter open in another page when ordering from them. Most of the time I can guess fairly accurately the difference between British pounds and dollars, but it was nice to see exactly what I was going to be charged on my card. So this is really sweet!

I thought the same thing about the shipping when I saw the subject line and my heart sank. Glad to know that's not so!
