There are several great book selling sites that offer delivery internationally, sometimes even FREE delivery anywhere in the world. There are also sources of FREE books (read about that at the World Family Education page about Free Educational Resources Online), so you may want to research those before buying. A few of the best, most reliable online stores are listed here:

Amazon.com offers a huge selection of books in multiple languages, genres, and authors, including ebooks for use with the Kindle reader or app. You can find almost any book and any edition that you want from Amazon.com, which is based in the United States.
