Books Ordered in October - and Offers

 Books Ordered in October

Here's a selection of books ordered so far this month. They normally take about a month to reach me. As usual, I have predicted the guide selling price in blue. In some cases I'm able to offer discounts on that price if the book is bought within a calendar month of the date of my order. In such cases I have marked the offer price in red. All the books are second hand unless stated otherwise. They're a mixture of a restocking of books and titles I haven't stocked before.
