      Thanks to Book Depository I can now buy my uni textbooks for half the price that they sell them in the bookshop, and with the leftovers I can splurge on some wonderful books that interest me. Now, if only I could remember what was taught in the classes..... Cheers!

      Think the DS could be a contender for the 'upgrade' for my son from his leappad. Wouldn't it be great if all entrants to this competition be emailed a discount incentive on any new DS purchase...cheeky hint to the marketing people!
