Amazon: Books American Headway

The American Headway books are widely used for teaching English. Imported books usually well without expensive in Brazil, and these are no exception. So I decided to go straight to the source. In US Amazon I could buy two books for the price you would pay for just one of them in Brazil. Even with the international freight is still much cheaper to buy in Amazon. Specifically, the two books were purchased these:

Fortunately books in Brazil are the only thing that still pass through customs without the dirty hand of the federal government apply abusive tax. Books are exempt from import tax. At least for now, after all up bill to prohibit importation of books PT already created.

I chose the cheapest shipping. The books went to Brazil for the iParcel. After customs clearance in Brazil they were stationed in the Post and followed by CAP to me.

Check out some pictures of books and package:
