Did anyone realise how expensive it is to get a copy of the Nick Cave book?
I shall be trying the library but don't hold out a lot of hope...
(Perhaps we should have picked one by, oooh, I don't know, say Huge Laurie?

I've just done a google shopping search and they came up with:

74 stores from £1
49 stores from £2

You can get it quite cheap from any Amazon Marketplace.

The Kindle edition is £5.31

Thank-you, Stuart ~ I only ever get as far as Amazon for books and was getting £74 from their MarketPlace.
However, looking today, it seems a new edition is out and the prices (including Kindle, for which it wasn't available two days ago) are now down to sensible levels.
I stand corrected.

No problem Rod - I know you like to read kindle editions.

When I was looking for suggestions I tried to only select books that were relatively easy to get hold of and not too expensive. There were some books that we'd never be able to find copies of.
