Speechless! My gob is well and truely smacked!!!

I have just got the bargain of a lifetime (charity shop find!)

I wanted a good dictionary something I could keep in the house to look words up quickly so I didn't have keep going on the internet to do it and also for when I am doing crosswords and the like and I get words I can't spell. I had a small cheap one I bought from the supermarket but thats about as much use as a chocolate fireguard so I have been after a decent one for a while but they don't tend to appear so often in charity shops and they are so expensive from the likes of WH Smith but today I found one!

It says its The New Oxford Dictionary of English and its a bloody breeze block of a book brand new totally unused in its original cellophane wrapper witha a big sticker on it saying "The Official Countdown Dictionary!" and with a retail price of 29.99 on the back - I paid not 29.99, but 5.00 can you believe it 5!! Surprised



(I am thinking I have posted this in the wrong place though I should have posted it in the buying books bit - feel free to shift it admin!)

Sorry I've just spotted my typo (and I can't believe I did it twice!) it was actually 5 the 2 is underneath and I obviously caught that by mistake! (either that or my keyboard is caput!) 555 222 - no it was me, sorry to mislead! Embarassed

(Still an excellent bargain though! and also the original post has now been edited to show the right amount!)

Now look!  Keeping it to yourself is just selfish!

All Sense charity shops are in my opinion fabulous, its one of my fav's dirt cheap and you can get some real finds if you drop on! - so can you blame me for keeping it to myself!  Very Happy
