I went to a car boot sale and got about £70 worth of current detecting books for £1.50. :D But I find that are unbeatable for used books delivered. :thumbsup:

No doubt you already know these, Steve.
Whenever i visit Salisbury, always go to the Oxfam bookshop and also the Antiques Emporium, with 3 floors, good book stall on the middle floor.
Charity shops in general can throw up the unexpected gem.
Have managed to find some signed books that fell through the net, Allan Ball, Gordon Banks, Bill Pertwee of Dads Army with an interesting inscription to John and Norma, mentioning cricket. Think i know who they are. David Platt, Glenn Hoddle, Ian Botham, Geoff Boycott, Edward Heath and Michael Winner complete with a doodle to name a few. These were bought for either 50p or a pound.
Would rather have 2nd hand books than brand new, you can get say at least 10 old uns for the price of a newbie.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Like Easy Life mentioned I have used Abebooks in the past.

Great advice to about car boot sales, and charity shops (I have bought many books from them over the years, they can provide bargains and for good causes so a win win situation).

Oxgirl I rarely get to Stratford, too many tourists!, but its a lovely town even if just to walk by the river, so next time there I will have a look in the charity shops and see if you left anything of interest.
