Colour of Magic corgi paperback for £1.79p in a charity shop. When I go for mylunch break I pop into the many charity shops and check the 'P' section, religiously. (If I even was religious :lol: ) Best way to get a bargain and feels a bit like a succesful treaser hunt when I do find one!
Looking forward to reading the very first one soon. :D

Bought Reaper Man from a bookshop today for a quid. I read it ages ago (borrowed) but only started filling up the gaps in my collection recently. I'm trying to get them from charity shops but this one was just there. :D

A few years back my wife found the Ladybird edition of Truckers (based on the TV adaptation) for 49p.

I had most of mine given second-hand to me by my father, but the cheapest I have seen bought for me was the WITCHES TRILOGY omnibus. It contained the first three Witches books, EQUAL RITES, WYRD SISTERS and WITCHES ABROAD (currently reading Witches Abroad again). It was this price along with GOING POSTAL and NIGHT WATCH because they had been damaged in transit.

My book Unseen ~Academicals cost £4 for the paperback, £7 for the hardback.
