Anyone know some good problem books for reading practice? I am looking to practice problems where the reading depth is about 10 moves.

https://senseis.xmp.net/?SegoeTesujiDictionary is a good set with quite a few long sequences.

The book Tactical Reading if you don't mind that it has problems, theory, depth, breadth and explanation of the decision-making. If you ONLY want depth, then better read tsumego collections, such as the Nihon Kiin Tesuji Dictionary.

I'd love to know if it's possible to find these in Europe. I looked around some more and less popular outlets, but not much from Segoe is available.

I think it's easiest to order from amazon.co.jp, but as far as I know, they don't ship books from third-party sellers outside Japan. I've ordered my set of the 囲碁の力を強くする本 books while in Tokyo in 2013; they were delivered to the hotel without problems.

So if you go to Japan or know someone who will bring the books for you, that's an option.

As far as I can tell you only need a Japanese address and they will ship to you anywhere in the world after that. I ordered items from amazon.co.jp while I was living in Tsukuba for a research visit, and have since had no problems having books shipped to Canada.

Yes, I've also ordered many books from amazon.co.jp that they themselves had in stock. I wasn't able (back then) to have books from Japanese resellers shipped to outside Japan.
