Books for Sale!
I’m going away for a long weekend (conference down near home, so making the most of it) and thought I’d try something… I’ve been having a sort-out, and have quite a few books I don’t need any more. I’m also somewhat in need of monies at the moment, what with an unfunded DPhil and all, so I thought I’d copy an idea Rachel had a while ago, and put up my old books for sale. I think some of them might appeal. Hope you don’t mind this swerve away from normal blog posts – but I think it could be win-win for us both.
Because of postage costs, this is just for people in the UK – but if you see something you really like, then email me and we can try to work something out!
To make things simple, they’re £4 each, 3 for £10, including postage. Pick the one(s) you want, and email me at simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk (and maybe stake your claim in the comments) – payment would have to be by cheque, or bank transfer, or Paypal.
With every order, if you like, I’ll include one of my sketches. Just say ‘yes please, sketch!’ with your email. (Feel free to pick one from the archives – links in the left column – or I’ll pick one.)
I don’t know if this is going to be wildly successful or a complete dud, but I thought it would be worth a shot! There are pictures of them all below, and a list at the bottom (I’ll delete them from the list as they go… pictures might not be updated). I wish I could just post them all off for free, but it would leave me very skint!
