How to buy books overseas

Hello, there!  :D

Did you enjoy our first short story?
If you are interested on purchasing new or used books in English, today´s tip is for you.
You may be thinking, why should I bother buying a book overseas, instead of acquiring it on Brazilians stores? The price. The same book (in English) on local stores has the import taxes and shipping added to the original price, to say the least. So, Why not try overseas?
There are several stores such as Amazon out there, however, Better World Books and Book Depository are by far the best ones. Both websites give you FREE shipping, and you don't have to pay any import tax once your book arrive here.
Below, you can find some reviews (PT), and the stores websites itselves:

Before I forget, while The Book Depository is an UK-based company (recently bought by Amazon), Better World Books is an American online for-profit seller, that donates to non-profit organizations related to education.

That´s all for today!
