    56 for 84 quid. mostly for me, but a few for the other half.

    took bloody ages to get them all into the cart, had to refresh some of them 20 times and it took 25 mins for my card details to go through then ages to wait until i could download them. but i'll forgive inconvenience for that price

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Took me about 30 minutes to log into my account and 20 minutes to buy 3 ebooks. Their servers were definitely having a problem handling the volume of users.

    E2A: I bought:

    Private Island by James Meek
    The Idea of Israel by Ilan Pappe
    and
    Extrastatecraft by Keller Easterling

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Bought Chavs, Altai, Narcoland, The History of the Barriucade, School Wars and The Rise of Islamic State for a grand total of £5.90.

    Sadly a fair few if the titles I wanted weren't available as ebooks. Oh well. Still a good start for my new Kindle till I get home and load all my other books on it :)

    I would strongly advise grabbing this - the (huge) paperback comes with the ebook as well. £3.50 for ebook/tenner for papeback+ebook.

    butchersapron blood on the walls

    It's one of the best books i've ever read - it even has one of the original and best 'autonomists' (marco revelli) praising it there...

    Bi annual opportunity to assuage Catholic/whatever guilt by buying a couple of books, rather than downloading them from aaaaarg.fail for nowt.
    Picked up the new Berger, plus Eric Olin Wright, another Raymond Williams, Arundhati Roy, Dorothy Thompson, & 'The Dialectics of Liberation' - plus butcher's recommendation. Happy days.
