Default Moreta, spare edition looking for a new home...

I renctly ordered a DVD from Amazon, and got this instead:


Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern - 2002 Corgi/UK re-edition.

As I already have this book, and Amazon don't want it back, I am looking for a new home for it.

It is house trained, and in very good condition, and plays well with the other books. "Like New" is an accurate description.

Not really looking for anything for it - except to cover the P&P of where ever it ends up going.

Any takers?


(PS, I got the DVD I ordered, eventually!)

I'd love to give it a good home! You must know (by now) I collect all covers and I left the newest covers alone because they are so frightfully expensive when I need to buy them here in a bookshop (usually around 12-14 euro's).

Let's figure out how to get the money to you, Jay! (and how much). Or maybe you rather want something in trade?

Hmm, unless someone in the UK is lacking this book! In that case I'll gladly levae it to that person as the postage will be cheaper too!

I'll see if I can get a rough quote of how much it would be to send. Packing I have plenty of. Still have a BIG roll of bubblewrap left from the recent house move, so that wont figure into the cost at all. So it will just by a flat shipping amount.

It's a spare book that cost me nothing, so I ask nothing for it matey

Having www.bol.com sending it to me (no posting charge) would cost me 10,99 euro, so anything less than 7.50621 GBP is a profit for me

Ok, so now I've stopped laughing! No problem, I can do it that way for you. I'll check out Royal Mail as well becasue if memory serves they may actually owe me a free parcel for loosing a package I sent my best friend last year..............

Hans, I do indeed have a "free parcel" from Royal Mail for them messing up before, so I can send this at no cost to either of us.

So where do you want me to send it?
