    Good deals and bargains...

    So I figured that instead of having random threads for good deals on books from publishers/book stores, we'd keep it all in one place. (Note: this thread is not for individuals selling books (ebay auctions, etc), please keep all of those posts in the book market thread.)

    So here are two good deals that found themselves in my inbox:

    The first volume of the Game of Thrones comic, almost half off on pre-order: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/game...HRONES-_-nra22

    And PS publishing has an interesting 13 books sale: 13 books for 13 pounds for 13 days, the line-up will change every 13 days. http://www.pspublishing.co.uk/index.asp

    I'm sure it'll come in handy to some of us.

    Sorry Squire. But you know you deserve it, you have me drooling over those Easton press books all the time.

    I broke down and got a set instead of going for the night shade sale. Crazy price for 13 HC, one of which will be signed, in your case 2!

    And I'm guessing you're $39 + shipping lighter as well??

    I thought about grabbing this and selling them but decided i'd end up being lazy and not selling thus ending up 40 something dollars lighter.

    But, if you move out, you'll discover that there's more out there than just this forum; and...and...Pete will miss you.....

    Yeah, all that and more! Houses eat money like crack addicts!! Theres the furniture to think of, something always needs fixing, bills, the lawn needs to be kept so that eats more money, more bills,...

    Actually I have furniture...it's my parents that are gonna need furniture and a washer dryer. they threw there old crappy stuff out and are using my new stuff. Why does the lawn need money? are you too lazy to mow your own lawn pete? I will have no book money when I move though, I keep telling myself I will...but I won't. I am also glad my brothers a plumber. That'll come in handy no doubt.

    Wow, shouldn't even be getting into this, but no I am not too lazy to mow my lawn. And that is why it needs money: fertilizer for the grass, gas for the mower, a mower if you don't have one, then from time to time you gotta plant some grass where there's empty spots, and a whole bunch of other things. Of course you don't have to take care of your lawn, so no problem there.

    I I sure wouldn't have to bother with fertilizer or patching anything. grass tends to grow on its own around here. Lol. I will need a mower and gas though. Maybe not the mower if I buy one of the three houses for sale on this street. Won't need to borrow a truck or rent a moving van either. Lol.

    Jumped on this so fast yesterday that I didn't even notice they are planning to run this sale for a whole 13 days! They must have a lot of books in stock.
