Default Crazy prices...

I was just browsing to see if I could get Song in the Silence et al on Amazon (guess what I'm buying when I get my credit card to work properly) when I came across this. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-lis...condition=used
That's one expensive paperback!

Actually just got off the phone with Elizabeth and she did chuckle.

You should look on eBay, Edi. Al the books are there for very reasonable prices!

I can get them new on Amazon for £6.99. I'm going to go shopping once I'm back in Delft

Hahahaha!

Oh, Edith, that's priceless! As my mother would say - my god miss Agnes! (No,I don't know why she said it, but it pretty much covers all the bases!)

I'm so glad you found the sensibly priced ones! Good grief. And if they don't have them on Amazon.co.uk, they DO have them new on Amazon.com. Good grief!

Now wouldn't it be nice if I received even a fraction of that insane price? It is to laugh...

They're top of my list as they're definitely at .co.uk. I read a bit more of Redeeming the Lost today as it was still in the library. Why they only have Redeeming the Lost is beyond me though . It's made me even more certain that I have to do an Amazon order

What a shame that book's secondhand: if it was new Lanen could get a nice royalty just off that one on its own.

It's not my local library any more. I was only there because I was in town and my Mum was teaching there and I had 45 minutes of nothing to do so I found a book and settled in a corner.

I managed to get about 3/4 of the way through in the end. The rest will have to wait until I go shopping.
