Thank you for the tip about the Alan Garner. That is one book that I HAVE to have bearing in mind how much I loved the first two.
I feel a re-read coming on, if I can work out where junior daughter stashed my copies of Weirdstone and Moon of Gomrath as she was the last to have custody of them!
I have enjoyed most of Alan Garner's work but the only one I am not fond of (The Owl Service) is what appears to be most people's favourite of his. (for the record: on both readings of it, as a teenager and last year, I found all the main characters so thoroughly self-absorbed and dislikeable that I wouldn't have cared if the Wild Hunt had gone off with the lot of them!)


The advantage to these specialty used book sellers is that many of them also buy back the books that were purchased. Campus bookstores usually offer this service as well, so it is a good idea to see who will give the best price for unwanted books at the end of the semester. This little extra can help in the purchase of books for the following semester or provide that little infusion of cash needed at the end of the school year.
