Now On Sale in Britain; not in N. America until the end of October. Worse, it's ₤10.19 there and ₤12.40 in Canada! Usually I find the US cheapest, Canada more, but the UK even worse. Now we're getting screwed from both sides. --Old Dickens 21:13, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh, bad luck.. Are the prices you quote in US or Canadian $ reconverted to £? I ask because the cover price at Borders in Stockport was £17.99, with a footnote in smaller letters to say in Canada the RRP is $36.95. Although I did get a money-off deal that knocked what I paid down to £14.99. My copy of Nation was £16.99 on the cover, but the same discount got it for £13.99. (The advantage of a late-August birthday is that you get book tokens, which may be saved up for an occassion like this happening not long afterwards)--AgProv 22:32, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Those prices were listed by Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk - --Old Dickens 17:13, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Thinking about it, what if we ask for a moratorium on anyone making Wiki entries on "Nation" or "Folklore" until the end of October, to give everyone who's interested a chance to buy and read the book? Feels a bit unfair (otherwise - and for the next six or seven weeks or so, people in your position are being bombarded with spoilers for a book they haven't read yet, with every tempatation to read them.... thinking about it, if the circumstances were reversed I'd be frustrated as Hell!

(Just for the record: have made three entries, including two about the book itself, solely relating to "Folklore" but none as yet to "Nation")--AgProv 09:42, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
