Default A find...

How did I do on the price? We picked this up this morning for $6. It's in mint condition.

Six dollars is a great price for this wonderful book, AnnMarie!

If you had bought this on the internet you would have had to spend that on postage alone I suppose. And the prices of three copies on offer on eBay range from $ 15,32 to $ 34! And the two like new ones are $25 and $34!

So, well done you! It's a great book and I think Dancer will love it, too.

Meriah and I have both already read it, and yes, it's a fun read!
Nick actually spotted the book first, and KNEW it was going to be a good deal. I don't think even he knew HOW good, though!

Great find AnnMarie

I once had the pleasure of sitting next to Richard at a party, he was great company and it was such a thrill to discuss the origins of the book with him
