There is one down here (reopened after a year's absence) as well that has a lot of first editions in stock, including Sir Terry's. It does tend to be a bit pricey though, even for normal second-hand books. :D (I have to go back into town this afternoon, so I might have another look around.)
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Yesterday I got 45 books.I got all of them for 50euro which in my opinion is an amazing deal :D.
2 of the books are Angel books 15 of the books are Buffy books 1 of the books is an Are You Afraid of the Dark? book which is a novelization of a television series from the early 90s and 27 of the books are Point Horror books :D :dance:

I read the Book Thief and I Am Number 4. The second one was a book of the month option from a collectors shop I buy from so i gave it a try. Have the Sequel as well The Power of Six and i think the third part is out this year. Definitely a teen book but it was an easy read when i needed a chill out and the story has a decent amount of imagination to it :D
