I should go there more often. Now that I am doing challenges on GR, I don't always have books that I need, so am always looking for bargains!


message 39: by K (new)

K | 286 comments I just purchased the whole collection of Beatrix Potter books for the really cheap price of $39 AUD! I've been wanting these for years, but they were always about $150 AUD- A wee bit out of my price range. I was stoked to get them so cheaply. I love Beatrix Potter to pieces. Her books are so beautiful.
