This shop gives away free books you can pick any three
books to save them going in to Landfill sites or being
pulped. Mostly they are all secondhand and its a mix
of recent and older books. Could be handy to find older
books no longer stocked in shops.

Huge choice, Now this book is massive here in the
UK so I was really pleased to find a copy in perfect
brand new condition, its been on my to read list for a while.
I have not seen this version before or this cover any where
including on here. It seems very well bound for a paperback
and is large in size. Is this a regular book ?

I onley took two books the one above and then I spotted
this Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon for me it was a really
good find as I have read lots from this series but never
managed to ead the first book, so I was a good find for me.

Sandra | 22904 comments Excellent Lee.

Your book of US states it is an uncorrected proof, so equivalent to an ARC. If its not listed or the cover isn't on here, I'll add it for you :D

interesting to know more about it, its quite posh for an arc
the paper is lovely and the cover is stiff almost like a hardback.
With all the embossing on it, it looks like they were really
trying to impress.it looks awful in some of my pics but its
never been read, it still has that brand new feel of unturned
pages running through it.

Makes me wonder do some of the people they pick to review these
books actually read read them

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments Love Sherrilyn Kenyon!!!


message 8: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22904 comments There would certainly be a % that don't bother, I'm sure. 392 pgs added.

I picked up Fantasy Lover a couple of yrs ago for almost nothing. Though I had read it before :)


message 9: by Cassie Cruel (new)

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments I've got the whole series, beside the latest one


message 10: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22904 comments Cupcake, I've read quite a few from the library, I've only got a couple on my shelves. But there are a lot I haven't gotten to yet.

Have you read the Nick spin-off?


message 11: by Cassie Cruel (new)

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments There are loads all in all

I've read the first 3 Nick's......... I think


message 12: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22904 comments Yes, she seems to be very prolific. Which can be good if you keep up but daunting if you fall behind.


message 13: by Cassie Cruel (new)

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments But not too bad if you can get them second hand :)


message 14: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22904 comments Even the price of 2nd hand bks are spiralling upwards, especially here in Aus. The library is a better bet these days.


message 15: by Cassie Cruel (new)

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments Aww UK isn't too bad, as long as you can get it through new and used on Amazon


message 16: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22904 comments Nope postage from amazon is over $12 but I occasionally pick up cheapies from Better World Bks - no postage, just like Book Depository.


message 17: by Cassie Cruel (new)

Cassie Cruel (faith_isola) | 38 comments Our postage isn't too bad

My son has Amazon prime sometimes it works out fine
for him but other times its cheaper to buy from other
sellers on there and pay for the P&P. which is around £3
for a lot of items on there.

I check out the Works site sometimes as they have really good
books as low as 99p. They have over 300 stores in the UK
and now they do click and collect, so no postage to pay.
Lots for £1.99 each or six for £10. Its swings and roundabouts
sometimes there is loads I would like, other times just a small
amount.
I have had some real bargains in the past
