That is, of course the main problem with the N&MP......☺

Every time they have a sale I trawl the site, fill up my basket with a plethora of bargains... And then walk away....

I got a cracking set of bargains in the summer, but do need to be restrained.

I've done that often mainly because of the eye watering cost of posting them on to NZ!

I've got two issues... one I'm not reading nearly as much, and two, book shelf space is tremendously tight.

Nowt.

Between ridiculous P&P costs (when buying overseas) and getting the laundry roof fixed after the storm a couple of weeks ago, I've not found anything interesting enough to buy. Though I was strongly tempted by a couple of books- until I added the P&P, then converted the total to $AUD.
If "The System" is the answer, who asked such a bloody stupid question?

I'm giving away all my books. Three quarters of them have gone, the rest will be outed in the next couple of months unless they're uniform guides I might use. I don't really use uniform guides.
