Cheapest Pratchett you've ever bought

Postby unseenu » Wed Mar 09, 2011 6:29 pm

I bought the colour of magic and the light fantastic in one volume yesterday from an oxfam for only £1.99.This got me to thinking,what is the least amount of money you have ever paid for a Pratchett book?

I think 5 euro for Wee Free Men (hardcover).
Someone on the forum paid 50 cent for the graphic novel of LF, if I recall correctly

From one charity shop I bought ten paperback Discworlds for ten pounds. That was a good start at the beginning of my journey. :)

Got a few ex library editions on line for 50 pence.
Best value was getting a couple of the unseen Library editions for four euro each from a second hand shop. :D

I do find TP's books at car boot sales, individual ones I have paid as little as 50p for, but a while ago got 15 hard backs for £20, a job lot & none book club ones. I did have a few already, but sold those on. :lol:
Best wishes,
Tiff

Eric for free.
Wanted to buy it off a classmate and he ended up giving it to me for free (and we were no friends at all).
