US books for Kindle 2 international version

I bought the new Kindle 2 international version to replace my broken Kindle 2 US version. However, there are two issues :

  1. Not all books that you can buy for your Kindle 2 US version are available for international version.
  2. Many books are more expensive even they are available for the Kindle international version

For example, the book Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness, is not available in Asia & Pacific market. And for the book Presenting to Win by Jerry Weissman, it is less expensive for US version Kindle, than the Kindle International version.

  1. even buy the US kindle books, avoid using the 3g connection to receive the book outside US or a US$1.99 delivery charge will be incurred. the reason why the books are 2 bucks more expensive outside US is because amazon surcharge such delivery. therefore, the best way is to buy the books from the US library with the widest range and use the computer to download them and transfer to the kindle via the usb cable to avoid the delivery charge outside US.
