Bank Holiday Bargain Book Bonanza

 In all their glory and looking for a new home (or two!)

This is the final post of the three mentioned yesterday - I will then be ‘going dark’ for a week or two. I would like to thank everyone that has sent their best wishes to Laurel and to my brother in law - in both cases they are vert much appreciated. I shall be responding and emailing in due course over the next couple of days. 

I will also be doing the same in respect of the latest Block related post - the comments received were very encouraging indeed and more than ever I know I have made the correct decision to ‘pimp’ them. 

On a practical note the titles below are currently up for disposal and to save hassle I am looking at a flat price of £7.50 per title excluding postage. I will consider deals so if anything takes your fancy then drop me a line at the usual to discuss in detail.

Was very sorry to read of the recent woes my friend, and hope that things go as well as they can. I also lament once again the cost of international postage for heavy things - like books!

G’Day there Paul,

Thank you old chap - much appreciated. The Memsahib is coping as best as she can although it has certainly taken its toll - not to mention the news about her brother. All will go as well it can under the circumstances.

Postage to anywhere outside the UK is ridiculously expensive so you will have to come over to collect in person!

All the best,

Thinking of you in these difficult times David.


David Crook said...

Hi 'Lee,

All the best,

David Crook said...
