I tried Amazon Books

We decided that we're going to walk the streets of Rome for a week before we go on our Europe tour in October. So upon the recommendation of a friend (thanks Josee), I set out to find this book.

I'm a pretty loyal Chapters fan, but I had an itch to try Amazon. For this Rick Steves Rome 2010, the price was $14.00 including the shipping versus $22+tax in Chapters store.
I went ahead and ordered it from Amazon. It took about 10 days but it came today by mail. I looked at the odd postage mark, then realized it came from the UK. I thought that was pretty different. I thought it was coming from Amazon Canada.
Just the same, I'm excited to start planning the Rome Leg of our tour.
