Got mine today from waterstones for half price which is excellent so im going to read it again, (read the proof already) :D But im shocked about the ltd edition copy only available at two stores and ive got no chance of getting one, even when some get offered on ebay i bet they go for silly money, bang goes the complete collected UK editions works of Terry Pratchett, im not a happy bunny. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I have to say that I'm not wild about the US version of the cover.

I remember feeling quite pleased about it myself, but Tony, I wouldn't go that far :D

:lol: I did and I've just been out this morning in the pouring rain to get two copies of Nation from Tesco at £8.49 each. :wink: One for me and one to take to Tucson next month for the missus.

I ordered mine from Amazon last night, £8.50 and reduced rate on Folklore of the Discworld too. Ok, I'll have to wait but I have the new Eoin Colfer to keep me occupied til it gets here.

I'm glad you said that, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed! Now if I go out to get it, & Nation is on the shelves, I'm going to have a problem :wink:

But there are worse problems!

Borders only have £3 off but there is an exclusive Nation float pen included. I resisted, but intend to see if any pens show up on ebay.

The book is half price at WH Smith's as well but it's also in their 3 for 2 offer. Coupled with a "get £5 off when you spend £20" coupon means I just got three copies for £12. I'm going along to Piccadilly so will hopefully pick up a limited edition but my local Waterstones have told me they are also doing another limited edition exclusive to them and released on Oct 1st. Don't know how true this is but it seems strange to release it so late after the normal hardback.
