You don't have to speak the languages, since they all use the same template as Amazon.com, and I'm sure it's not beyiond your abilities to navigate the buying process without any difficulties. Be prepared to be screwed on the postage, though!
amazon.fr and amazon.co.jp. I was able to use my amazon.com account for .fr, but for .co.jp I had to re-register. Fortunately the info boxes are laid out the same. Brought the box it shipped in along with us to the reading - it looks exactly like any other big amazon box.
For Het Kaarten the link I give in the NL forum still works, but that site tells me Whalestoe is unavailable.
There's also an option on amazon.co.jp to display in English, which makes matters easier. Seeing as you're in the UK, I'd say it's probably not worth doing it through amazon.com: just do it directly with jp and fr. I could be wrong though.
\"Everything was necessary. He saw an old white woman fishing through a garbage can. That was necessary. He saw a bathtub toy, a little rubber duck, lying on its side on the grating over a storm sewer. It had to be there.

Just for the benefit of those who don't know how much yen is worth and don't want to do a quick search for a currency converter;
The Japanese version, which is 4,032 yen, costs $42.26 in American dollars. Apparently, that's the same as 24.03 in pounds, and 35.59 in euros.
It's two books though, right?
Also, it seems they're offering of Leaves packaged with some book by Amitav Ghosh, who I haven't heard of. I may have to check him out now. That package deal costs 6,720 yen, or $58.79, 33.44 in pounds, and 49.51 in euros.
Shipping: $13.12 to the US, 8.70 to the UK, and 12.89 to the rest of Europe.
Now, the next problem. I have no money, so which of you is going to buy them for me?
Already have the Dutch version (only one version availlable, paperback)? If you want I can check out how cheap I can get it for you.. (however postage will add quite some costs to the total,, since the Dutch version is about the same size as the UK version)
