Can't get free delivery from amazon for sales less than £25 to Ireland so the cost was working out to about 19 euro for me so went with the cheaper option :D[/quote]
If you ordered the Poo one as well would that qualify you for the free postage Pip.[/quote]
Nope . still under the total and i'm not bothered on the Pooh one .[/quote]

You could read it to the baby. :mrgreen:

I'll probably get mine from the supermarket too. Think I'll give the poo a miss though :hand:

It was Time's Eye! :D There was a great battle between Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great in it :lol:

I would have gotten it from my favorite bookstore, but it closed. :( Not sure where I'll pick it up yet.

The Long Earth's release date is 1st July in Australia.

And yet, I held a copy in my hands last night.... Random House Australia has sent us some Pratchett books (including TLE) to use as prizes at the Unseen University Convivium next month.

We are being a very well behaved committee and NOT reading The Long Earth now. After all, it would be unfair to the people who eventually win the books. But tell you what, it is bloody hard to resist the temptation....

It's easier because they're not at my house. How Peter is going to resist, I'm not sure...

My sister's going to London beginning of July so I'll ask her to bring me back a copy of Long Earth and Where's my Poo :)

A review - apparently it contains SPOILERS, so I haven't actually read the review. :)
