The Revenge of Gaia and The Wintersmith - I love the irony!

The local The Works still has hardback copies of The Last Hero for I think £3.99, I didn't buy one, as I have both that one & the paperback version.
Best wishes,

I got a hardback copy of Jasper Fforde's 'First Among Sequels' from the car boot sale. I asked the guy how much it was and he said: "All hardbacks are £2" - well I thought £2 was a bit pricey, but went for it anyhow. I handed him a £2 coin and he gave me £1 change. :D

I just got a never been played (so far as I can tell) unabridged audio book (tapes) of Feet of Clay at a charity shop for £1.95.

I just had to rescue it at that price. :D

I also got a first edition hardback of Kathy Reichs' 'Devil Bones' for only £3. :wink:

I bought a collection of TP PB's & HB's from a car boot, 14 in all, 3 of the HB's I hadn't got. They all were 50p each. :D You don't often see them at that price at a car boot sale, as people know how collectable they are.

I am still looking for the video of the second part of Soul Music though. The stall I bought that from only had part one. :(

Yes, I do have the DVD :lol:
Best wishes,
