book bargains

Postby pip » Fri Oct 08, 2010 8:43 am

Got an e-mail form an online english book store called awesome books that have made Terry Pratchett there author of the month. Had a quick peak and seems to be a reasonable selection of second hand bargains.
A few of the hardbacks are only two quid and buy two they deliver free to europe and north america.
Seems reasonable for anyone bulding up there collection. :D

i've had a snoop, looks interesting. The only books I need to complete my collection are Hat Full of Sky and Midnight, when that's out in paperback next year.

Bit tight for money at the moment so may prove useful

Really! Amazon says paperback is not until mid-next year.

Only seen hardbacks in shops so far, same as with all DW books...

Ireland's economy is so bad they can't afford the cardboard to make hardbacks. :lol:

£15 for a paperback - surely that can't be right?

Quite possibly true. Not one shop here stocked a hardback copy.
Had to order mine online to match the collection.

Crazy i agree .
My hardback cost less to get shipped in.
Average price of the paperback in a store here was around fifteen euro which is still bloody expensive. :x

GOt my UA for £3.79 on the day it came out, so I'm fine waiting another because I'm only just about to start wee Free men, so that means 8 books to go till midnight, 9 if i include ScienceIII

I have never

Postby carcer » Tue Oct 12, 2010 8:20 am

actually seen Midnight being sold at full price anywhere, everyone seems to reduce it by varying degrees.

I pre order each book as it is released as they seem to be released around my birthday.

Welcome to the site carcer! :D

Unfortunately, the two authors I buy brand new hardback copies of, Terry and Bernard Corwell, always seem to bring out their books at about the same time. I always buy a copy for me and one for Sharlene of each and so it tends to get expensive. Thankfully, bith TP and BC are writers whose books tend to be sold quite cheaply if you shop around. :wink:
