Where can I buy IT books in English in Geneva?
 
Does anyone know of any book stores in Geneva or Vaud for that matter that carry IT computer books in English? or do I have to continue to order them online?

Just today I was in a large Payot store in Geneva and they had everything but these types of books in English.

Phil,

You can buy online from books.ch, I find this is the best way. There were several shops here in Zug area at one time, but slowly these have closed, but one can order in person at a lot of shops. All you need beforehand is the ISBN.

Buy them from Amazon. Have them sent USPS. The shipping costs aren't too steep, and you probably won't get charged VAT if it's under $200 (and only contains books). If you can stand the wait the price will be much cheaper.

Follow MarkJ's advice and pop into Ellipse. It's the best nerdy bookshop that I know. Leafing through books is always useful before buying, even if you order them from Amazon ;).

Thanks everyone, I will check out all your ideas.

Like it has been said it is sometimes beter to flick through a book before buying it online ;)
