Bargin Books


Found an excellent deal yesterday (Saturday 20th October).
What happened was I went into Halifax (stab vest intact) at 4PM and as I walked past Halifax Libarary a man came up to me with big white carrier bags.
"Here Govenor there's a book sale on at libarary downstairs, you got five shillings?".
So I took a carrier bag off him and ventured into the libarary and down the stairs to find huge tables still quite full of books - to say sale had been on all day!
 I perused the books looking for what I would like - mainly Sci-fi, Fantasy, Thrillers and a couple of crime novels for my Mum.

At first I thought it was a Pound a book - how wrong was I!!  It was a pound per carrier bag full of books!
That's right fill a carrier bag full of books and purchase said bulging bag for one measly Pound!  Bargain.
Plus it cheap xmas pressies for Mum too - ha
These are the books I bought - although still about 100 books I already have to read including Wizards 1st Rule which I started in January 2012.
Stephen King - Everythings Eventual  - Collection of short stories from the king of horror.
Stephen King - From a Buick 8
Andrew Lane - Young Sherlock Holmes - Death Cloud
Chris Ryan  - The Increment
Ian C Esslemont - Night of Knives
Tom Holt - The Better Mousetrap
Michael Jan Friedman - X- Men - Shadows of the Past
Kevin Ryan - Star Trek - Errand of Fury (Book 2)
C S Goto - Warhammer 40,000 - Eldar Prophecy
Chris Roberson - Warhammer 40,000 - Dawn of War 2

Plus 2 crime novels for Mum - a Sue Grafton one I think!
One woman there had about 5 bags full of books - the lucky swine!

Well I'm off to finish reading Wizards 1st Rule - got so many books to get through - oh and write of course - if get the chance lol

Till next time guys!!  Neil x
