    12£ is just the book, no shipping included.

    Making a X10 markup on something you bought from a charity is infuriating imo

    And sorry for finding basic capitalism infuriating.

          The picture shows ISBN 9781784708276

          I search this to get the title: “Entangled Life - How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures”

          I see £, so I’m going to assume it’s the UK. I picked Manchester as a city to search.

          I search the book.

          Seven 2021 versions, three 2020 versions, and audio book are available.

          Lol.

          Oh, yes let’s let perfection be the enemy of good.

          It’s a rare thing I can’t get from my Library (mostly music and some movies), but anything educational and it’s there.

          I regularly check out DVD collections from The Teaching Company of university courses - I’m talking Harvard, Columbia, etc. Currently have History of Western Civilization on deck for ripping. It’s 40 hours of lectures, the DVD collection would cost $1500 on the open market.

          It’s one of dozens I’ve ripped for my own use, and converted to MP3 to listen when at gym or in the car.

        • Do your libraries not have a system to request books from other libraries? Not trying to be a jerk, I just have looked for some obscure things before and sometimes they had to be requested from other libraries.

            https://search.worldcat.org/ is a good inter-library search site. My librarians use it (among other things, I’m sure) to find books/DVDs to acquire for me on ILL, but since the site is public sometimes I just do the search for them and send them a link to what I want when I submit a hold request.

        I’m sorry I’m not English so I’m used to Euros, I wasn’t sure if the £ was supposed to be before or after
