Thanks you to Sarah who showed me a link to a website where you can sell your books and buy books second hand at a reasonable price. The site is called Green Metropolis and click on the name to go straight to it!
on another note i've ordered a new memory card for the camera and just have to pray and hope that i read the compatibility chart right and it will work. Then i can take a piccie of Georgies Cardi and her first hand knitted sock too and of my sideways KAL hat. So fingers crossed folks
