A quick foray to The Book Depository reveals just how much you can save if you spend there, so I have. I tried to persuade my wife that spending money in the UK on British books is the patriotic duty of any Englishman whose job seems secure and whose savings are safe in mutual societies which are not run by the sort of wanabee Gordon Gecko who has taken over so many of our building societies and has turned them into "banks".
..
But enough of that: one book about Church History, one about Military History, and another about a different flavour of Military History. Enough to keep me going until the weekend!

The founder of The Book Depository (Andrew Crawford) went to Downside School/Abbey. Indeed the founder of Ottakars (James Heneage) went to school at Worth Abbey , and recent CEO of Borders UK (David Roche) was at Worth too. Good old Benedictines, they must doing something right. Although John Varley, CEO of Barclays is ex Downside too, so they do produce some Gordon Gecko's too, but apparently his not as evil as most bankers.
