Hopefully most appropriate place to ask,


I'm looking at buying 20 to 30 books, some new some used from the U.S and having them sent to me in the U.K.


I have looked everywhere and jsut want a straight forward answer at this point how exactly the import duty works here. I was under the impression books were exempt but still can not find a straight forward answer to what sort of/if any fees I would be liable for on import?


Also if it's just books as above, is there a specific/code to desscribe them on customs form?


Many thanks!
