This is what’s known as a "bleg," in which I "beg" on a "blog." That is, the blogger asks his readers for help with something.
I’m interested in ordering a few music CDs (among them by Dirk Loombeek), but I don’t want to use www.amazon.de. I’d rather use a German firm that sells mail-order music. Does anyone know of a German firm that has a user-friendly website, a nice big selection, and delivers music in Germany quickly and reliably? (Yes, I sometimes use www.buecher.de, but I find them to be kind of slow, and they send you a lot of envelopes containing unnecessary paper invoices, for some reason).
Note: I have nothing in particular against Amazon (I’ve used them before), and I’m not trying to start some sort of political discussion. I just have a policy of usually trying to buy stuff at local neighborhood stores instead of chains, wherever possible, and I’d like to extend that policy to online purchases. Can anyone help me out here?
