Here is the dilemma:
I want to get  few instructional books from very different sources from US authors, but would be pleased If I don't have to pay shipping separately  for every single book. Here is what I want:

Sam Burtis, Time, Balance & Connections:

Bob McChesney, Technical Studies for Trombone

Michel Lake, Trombone Improvisation Savvy

So, is there a way to purchase all three in a single shipping and how to do that?

Given that the Burtis and Lake books at least have (I believe) a fairly limited number of distributors, your best option may be to arrange one of those re-shipping services.  They provide you with a US address for the supplier to ship to, from where the items are then forwarded overseas.  They're designed for people outside the US who wish to buy from sellers who won't ship internationally, but you may be able to negotiate a deal whereby they hold items until you've accumulated a few.

Worth a shot.  It may also be worth contacting Sam and Mike directly to see if something could be arranged.  Not sure about Mr McChesney, though ...

If it's not worth doing, it's not worth doing well.
