"I would also try bookdepository.com they are a British company (bought by Amazon) BUT they offer FREE shipping world-wide.  I've used them countless times and they are always quick and reliable."

Hey guys, I'm having a little problem that I hope you could help me solve. First of all, thank you for bothering to read the thread and allow me to explain my situation. I want to purchase a few books which are not available in my country (Poland) off of Amazon.com but sadly, the delivery cost equals the value of bought items. It goes up to $200 which is a hell of a money for me, especially considering half of it is for the shipment alone.Now my question to you is this: do you know any other…See More

We were doing great, I feel we really understand each other, she fascinates me, I feel really happy with her and she tells me she feels the same way.

Should I go for the CPA?

I have long been thinking about adding a CPA to my name.I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history and an economics minor when I was an undegrad.

While I was in the master's program, I received a job offer working for a union funds office as a collections/delinquency coordinator for a multi-employer health and welfare plan. I've been working at this job for 2…See More
