Oh blimey - just seen this pop up in my email. At first glance it looks like one of the Harry potters, but it can't be that easy can it?

It is and it can ;)
Using your old computer to shop for a new computer online is rather cruel
It's like asking your dying wife if she has any cute girlfriends

Most of my 'new' books are actually between 1p and £2.50 from second-hand online sellers, so charitably £250 would buy me 100-300 books

So, maybe just about a year's worth

Quantity, is not the same thing as quality :wink: My wish list would be:
The Folio Society's edition of American Gods: £75 and Small Gods £36.95
Father Christmas' Fake Beard, delux ed: £25
Discworld Imaginarium, delux ed: £75
= £211.95, leaving £38.05 for rummaging around charity shops . . . assuming £2 per book, I'd be 23 books better off all in - and a very happy bunny :D
