"'''As I often say''', I'm not computer literate (although I'm improving) and not at all technical. I'm of the age when, at school, computers weren't really heard of.

Amazon through your letterbox

AdvantagesAmazon Marketplace - cheap as chips

DisadvantagesDelivery Costs

"...really find a lot about Amazon.co.uk but from what I have found on their website, they were launched in 1996, as an independent book store Bookpages, which was then acquired by Amazon.com in 1998. Over the years Amazon have branched out their online stores to include France, Canada, United States, Germany and Japan. They became famous for selling books but they now stock many other items such as Electronics, things for the garden and toys and games. ..." Read review
