    Your welcome Carol........ save it for one of those rainy days ! We have had the most horrendous storms, floods and general chaos here and NO WATER for two days. Ironic to look out window and see flooded fields and roads and be drinking bottled water!!! Enjoy.

    Hi Brian, just wondering if you are OK, seen it on TV looks pretty frightening, hope you and other travelling funsters are safe.

    But you just bought book 2 for 20p now you have to go and buy book 1 at £5.60. :BigGrin: Still a great buy though.:thumb:

    Big article today in the Sunday Times about the scandalous price of eBooks and an investigation into price fixing.

    All well with us Carol. We live in the mountains above Malaga and the worst of the waters passed us by on the way to damaging properties of others less fortunate. Still no mains water.

    Traditional books have always been VAT free in order to avoid putting people off literature because of its educational value. For some reason I remember that being publicised when VAT first replaced Purchase Tax :Smile:
    The HMRC leaflet Here explains the restriction to printed books
