The other advantage of Prime is that they guarantee next day delivery - the alternative first class post doesn't.

Amazon's standard first class UK shipping rates for books are £2.16 per delivery plus £0.59 per item, for a total of £2.75 for a delivery of one book, as you say. So eighteen deliveries in a year would make the Prime membership worth-while, in pure cost terms.

Alas, I am in a period of retrenchment, else I would be interested in it. I have neither enough money nor enough shelf space - hence all the sales on eBay, with another dozen or so to come once my digital camera has been repaired.

Personally, I buy enough from Amazon that the Prime service is worth it to me - but if I didn't waste, sorry, spend so much money on new books, it wouldn't be.

It is incredibly useful for last-minute presents.
