How long does it take to get a book from the US? Someone said as much as three months.

10 to 14 days.

It once took 3 weeks during Russian holidays when the PO was closed.

I've been ordering from Amazon (US) for several years and never had a problem.

Some people have lost packages with them and Amazon sends another shipment no charge.

Try Amazon.co.uk- you get your stuff 3-10 days from despatch. Never had any problems. Its better to get your parcels delivered to work rather than your home address.

I agree with the suggestion to use the UK Amazon, else try the one in Germany as they will send via Deutche Post and most stuff sent that way, I have received. I did order a bunch of books at the beginning of the year from the US Amazon and they (against my request) sent them via ground and I never received them. A simple email to them had the replacements on thier way overnight from Germany. I have found that it is worth the extra $$ to use a shipping service rather than depend on the Russian postal service.
