Online book retailer - cheapest? free p&p?

Spotted a travel guide i fancy, its only 5 quid at amazon, but p&p is like another 2.75, which is a total rip off.

Anyone know a good online book retailer where p&p is included or does such an outfit not exist.?

The only retailer that kinda includes p+p is Swotbooks.com.
Although you have to spend over £50 to get free p+p, the cost of the books alone is the cheapest I've found anywhere around t'internet. I haven't been on there for a while but I've got a feeling p+p below £50 spend is about £2.
They're very reliable, quick and it all comes thoroughly packaged.
Hope this helps,
Cheers Stu G

Yeah, agree with all of the above!
If you only want one cheap book blackwells are often the cheapest who simply charge RRP with free delivery. If you want a few books, swotbooks are cheapest - they generally beat amazon's prices by 5% or so and delivery is cheaper.
But in any case, you should check out bookbrain to be sure
