Hey everyone. I checked out the links in the Sensei Library link below, but they were out of stock / only had availability from Japan.

http://senseis.xmp.net/?TheBookToIncrea ... rengthAtGo

So I thought I would go ahead and post on the forum in case anyone had these books and were looking to sell them. Thanks!

I bought them from amazon.co.jp when I was in Japan in November - only because delivery was fast and free, but if you really want them, the shipping costs from Japan aren't a showstopper and ordering from amazon.co.jp is reasonably painless.

It looks like amazon.co.jp is out of stock on the first one, but still has the second.

They have alternative sellers for the first one, but the only one willing to sell overseas is asking a ridiculous amount.

Thanks for the advice Marcel! I'll be sure to keep an eye on the prices and maybe I'll from Amazon.jp if they have them for a reasonable price.

@Oren - Yeah looks like I'll have to be patient this time around. Hopefully they'll get some more in stock soon!

i actually once bought the first part, but can`t remember exactly where and how (maybe reseller/shipping service) ... i can`t find the book and i`m thinking about buying it again... but at the moment i don`t know how / wich way is best.

If you have any good tipp, how is the best way to buy from amazon.jp, please let me know (they don`t ship the book directly to europe).

Maybe someone here is willing to sell their book? :lol:

You can use a third party such as buyee.jp to buy from Amazon Japan, or to buy at auction from Yahoo. I have used both. It's more expensive to buy single books, but gets cheaper if you buy several. I bought these two books by Segoe at auction from Yahoo - they are really good.

I'll try and add some more details.
