A Very Musical Christmas #2: More Music Books

 
By on Thursday, 13th November 2008 at 9:37 pm
 

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a really hard time this Christmas finding books within budget for my friends and family… Following on from our previous post about musical gifts, those lovely people at Virgin Books have been in touch to offer you 35% off their range of music books and free postage and packing this Christmas – what more could you ask for?

To get the 35% off AND free P&P simply enter the code VIRGINXMAS into the coupon box at the end of the checkout.

Have a browse around on the links below, and maybe and buy something – they’re actually cheaper than Amazon at the moment on a fair few books, and there really is something for everyone, from your Dad (Meatloaf perhaps?) to your Gran (BB King?) via your older cousin who you always knew was a tad strange (David Bowie!)

(Please note: I don’t get any comission from these book sales, nor am I affiliated in any way with Virgin Books – I just thought you might be interested in some Christmas ideas!)

Random Aside #5

 
By on Saturday, 21st April 2007 at 6:24 pm
 

Today’s useless fact: a roll of magic tape (that white tape that goes invisible) costs £2.56 a roll to the council, and a roll of conventional Sellotape costs 8p.

However sellotape dries all yellow and sticky, and the magic tape is prone to stretch.

Which is why of course we use sellotape on book jackets, and magic tape to stick notes on trolleys. Because people love a yellow sticky mess on their ancient books. And we need to affix random notes to trolleys that transport books around with an expensive bit of sticky tape when its only going to be on there for 5 minutes.

This is all the opposite of what we received an email about (yes, we got an email about sticky tape).

Don’t you just love local government bureaucracy?
