Book Bargains.

Postby Tonyblack » Sat Sep 06, 2008 9:52 am

Have you come across a real bargain and are you itching to make us all jealous? Or have you seen something that you think we might all want in a shop near you? Tell us about it here.



I don't know if this is the case everywhere, but this morning I picked up a very nice Trade Paperback sized copy of The New Discworld Companion from The Works in Cardiff for just £1.99.

My original copy is in a real state as I use it so often, so this one will be to keep. I know The Works (sometimes called Booksale) tends to have the same stock throughout the country so it might be worth checking your local branch. :D

Yesterday i managed to pick up three of the condensed Discworld books for a pound each, not sure if this is good or not as i haven't seen them before. I just thought they looked cute. :)

I haven't heard of these either - do you have some more details like where you got them and an ISBN number? :)

Ah sorry that was me being thick what i meant to say was compact. The books are all full length but in a much smaller form, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand not mine though because i have small hands.

I picked up Colour of magic, Equal rites and Mort apparently The light fantastic is also available but i'm not sure about the rest.

I think they released the first four Discworld novels in that format.

I have Mort. They are cute, but almost impossible to read.

I know the ones, and yes they were in a box set but were also available individually.

well for a new bargain im so glad i brought Once more with footnotes, you seen the price theyre being asked for now :shock: check this out....

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Terry-Pratchett-O ... 286.c0.m14

Thinking about it, if theyre asking £1k for a 4 year old book ltd to 2500 copies, whats that going to do for Nation in 4 years concidering only 275 copies oh and the new price of Nation was twice that for Footnotes.
