You saved overall :-)

Yes.
I paid £1 extra as I wanted the first book on the Kindle.
Nothing to moan about as I had a choice.

You also saved space, which is probably worth the extra £1.

A lot of people don't seem to realise that they have a choice, having a kindle does not mean you can't buy a regular book. If there was something I really wanted and wasn't willing to pay a higher price for the ebook, I'd just buy the paperback. Not that I've come across this example, most times if it's something new then it's roughly the same price in my experience.

I will pay a bit extra if necessary to put it on my Kindle, - it costs me a lot more just to get to Waterstones or any other bookshop.

I'm currently reading a series by an American author who doesn't publish in the UK. As a result the paperbacks are imported and cost £14.99. The eBook versions cost between £4 and £5. I'm actually saving nothing as I don't value the stories enough to pay close to £15 for them, but that's not to say others don't.

The first in the series has been out if print for several years and was never released as an eBook. I emailed the author and he, very kindly, sent me a pdf (free) of the final draft of it. I would willingly have paid £15 for it. Sometimes it isn't just roundabouts and swings but a whole fairground of fun ;-)

I thought you were busy with the wedding! I also thought this post was going to be about all the fun we had in the park - instead it was about your foray into the land of treebooks- I'm reporting you to the Ents!

I used to love the park when I was a kid. We use to nick margarine wrappers to make the slide slippier.

Brian says:
That was a good idea - our slide could have done with some of that - you used to be able to walk down it. Happy days, eh?

No, no,no.
Life is a minestrone
Served up with parmesan cheese
Death is a cold Lasagne

Brian, my wife is stressing me so much that I need the relief of reading here now and again.
My food prep is all done.
Yesterday I was delegated the task of going into town and collecting the wedding suits - car parks full, pouring with rain and I queued for ages.
My first port of call was a beer and a read of my Kindle for 30 minutes to regain my "chill" factor.
I promise I won't be on here tomorrow!!

You 're a character BJ - do you fancy coming over here, to give us a time management course?

Suze, we used candles for this purpose :-) Used them on the soles of our wooden-soled clogs too, so we could slide down the cobbled street :-) Now I'm showing my age :-) x

Once collected 4 suits for a wedding - the boy at the outfitters got the jackets and trousers all mixed up - we ended up looking like the Marx Brothers on the great day - took an hour of good drinkin time to sort it all out.

Good luck BJT on the day ;0)

I once volunteered myself for a time management course Brian
I was a manager for 30+ years and never used a diary.
Around mid morning my Boss knocked on the door and said to me "You're meant to be seeing me 10 minutes ago for your annual appraisal".
Hoots of laughter from all the others in the room.
I got a good score for "Personal Development" though :)

BeeJayTee says:
Cheers my man :)
I'm wandering the house mouthing my speech to myself so I won't need notes.
Need a beer soon.

In reply to an earlier post on 10 May 2012 11:29:10 BDT
As an ex father OTB - 'hold' notes even if they are fake. Otherwise you won't know what to do with your hands. Fix your eyes on RH, LH and centre groups of punters for a few seconds at a time randomly. Speak 'SLOWLY' and don't pick yer nose!!

Good luck for tomorrow BeeJay. I hope it all goes well and congratulations to the bride and groom (even if I don't know them).

Edit: I really, really like wedding cake!
