Which title was it?

(When did "hippy" become associated with "cafe society"? I remember when hippies were the street people.)

I have been finding more used paperbacks of TP books than I ever used to. I'm not sure whether he's being given a try by more people, or whether his fans are having to clear out everything and go on the road, or dying off... I prefer the first answer. It is true that almost everyone I pay attention to is a Terry fan already, so I now have relatively little need for my large collection of lending copies. I am trying to train myself to leave the book there for someone else to discover.

Not sure if it's been mentioned(I only skimmed) but one significant point, you can't get an autograph on a digital copy of a book.

They deliver free to Oz if you get two books and the second hand hardbacks and paperbacks are all around two pound :D

Thanks for the tip, Pip. I have just ordered a book from them. :D

I got into Jasper FForde quite late so i went on to this place , picked all the Thursday books except the first and the two nursery crime books , got them all for 2.39 each in hardback , they all arrived , all were first editions and two were signed . Bonus :D

I thought it was a link to World of Books that you posted. I've bookmarked both now. :P
