Hi Lynne

If the condition loses money on a particular ocassion, is the value of that loss equal to the amount you paid for the book(s)?
If the condition saves you money, is it because of some knowledge you have acquired from reading the book?
("How to sell your own house in 24 hours"??)
Exact place you buy from relevant?

********* SPOILER ********

I am hopeless at remembering stories. I can re read Agatha Christies and still be surprised by the outcome.
So sometimes I find that I've bought a book I've already got. And sometimes I think - why buy a book? I've got plenty of 'unread' ones on the bookshelf


Well done Pandora!
