A Foyles tip. Books from the Foyles shop are often more expensive than  
books from  the Foyles web site. You can, however, order books from  
their web site and then collect them from the shop. You can't pick  
them up that day - they need to be shipped in from a special "cheaper  
books" warehouse - but they send you a mail and you can pick them up a  
couple of days later.

If you work near Foyles then it's a good way to save a few quid.
