Note: this is your last chance to claim any of the books in http://bouteillebleu.livejournal.com/187771.html - I am going to take the unclaimed ones to charity shops this weekend.

But I do have some more books. As before, these are yours if you're interested - come June they will be going to charity shops.

Books are £1 each unless there's another price, all paperback unless otherwise mentioned. Can do delivery within Cambridge or to Maelstrom event 4; Odyssey event 3 might be possible via someone else but would have to arrange. Anything else, let me know and I'll see what we can work out.

Books I am getting rid of. Yours if you're interested - come May, the ones that are left will be going to local charity shops.

EDIT: Books that were not claimed have now all been donated to Mind on Burleigh Street in Cambridge, in case you were after them and would like to know where to acquire them. Edge magazines are still available, pending me figuring out how best to dispose of them.

Books listed below the cut. )

It has come to my attention that being unemployed means I do not have as much money coming in every month as before. It has also come to my attention that I have about three large bookshelves' worth of books and there are some I have bought and never read and will never read, or have read the first fifty pages of and will not finish.

So!

I'm going to be putting the books in this list up on Amazon Marketplace fairly soon (or selling them to the book stall at the market if the Amazon price is appalling), but first, if you want to buy any of these directly, please comment. £1-£3 each is about all I'm hoping for, but every little helps.

I also have a copy of Shade's Children by Garth Nix which is apparently "not for sale or requotation", but available free (well, cost of postage :) to a good home.

EDIT: Shade's Children is now gone, as are a few of the books. Going to list some more by 4pm.

Because of utter disorganisation, I've been trying to find tickets for the third date that Nightwish will be playing at the London Astoria in March - the first two dates sold out, and they added a third.

I tried to book through Ticketmaster, but:

(a) they were quite expensive (£17.50 per ticket, fine; £3.50 per ticket handling charge, erk; £4.95 postage, um?)

(b) there were timeouts on every stage of the ticket-buying process, usually 3 minutes or less

(c) I decided to pay by credit card, and they then sent me on to sign up for Mastercard SecureCode. I'm still a little twitchy about this because by "sent me on", I mean "they opened an IFRAME on the page with a place to enter more details that I hadn't yet given Ticketmaster, such as date of birth".

I decided that this was a little too much, and asked around for other suggestions.

[livejournal.com profile] gwyntar on #larp suggested SeeTickets.com, and I had a look, put credit card details and address in, and about two minutes later had ordered two tickets (for me and Bryony).

Granted, the bright-text-on-black look is still somewhat eye-searing for me, but the site itself seems to be well done, and I'm happy with the ticket ordering process. :)
