Thanks, will have a look
If you want to be happy for a short time - get drunk.

If you want to be happy for a long time - fall in love.

If you want to be happy forever - take up gardening!

If you can't find what you are looking for on ebay try "the book depository", they are pretty good and do free pandp

Be careful and check prices on flea-bay, some of them are charging more than they would in Waterstones and the like!

I have found Amazon's 'marketplace' to be a fantastic place for cheap, used books, most of the time undercutting eBay. Just make sure that you check the P&P costs first.

Also, if no one has the 1940 classic 'How to Run an Allotment' by Alec Bristow, it has been re-published in hardback and Amazon have some huge reductions on it at the moment. It was written by my friend's grandad and is something of a classic, I believe.

Tim's mum was on Woman's Hour this morning, he says, talking about Alec and the book - I may have to check it out on iPlayer!

Sorry to hijack but I think it's on topic!  :lol:

I have also found Amazon to be amazing for books. Just yesterday I received Dr DG Hessayon 'Veg & Herb Expert'. Lovely book. I also bought John Harrisons books form ebay. Can't stop now...... you're right though scabs, you do need to check the old p&p costs.

I just bought an ex Library copy of The Kitchen Garden Yearbook by Daphne Ledward (an oldie but a goodie) from Amazon for a squid +2.75 p&p .......... a bargain :)
(could have got it a bit cheaper but the cheaper shop had a lower rating, so I wasn't sure :unsure: )

I have been looking for a copy for ages, as I was getting fed up with keep borrowing it from Ashford Library.............now I will have my own Library copy :lol:
