Start your AO library

Amazon have a special on the wonderful Puffin Classics 16 Book Set. It's a great way to start a library of living books, I reckon! The whole kit and caboodle for A$51.65. (That's just over 50 bucks Australian. Plus postage if you live in Australia. That always hurts a bit. Okay, a lot.)

Anyhow, check it out.

This is what you get:

AO1 Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
AO2 The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
AO3 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
AO3 A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
AO4 Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
AO4 The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
AO5 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
AO5 King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green
AO5 Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
AO5 Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
AO5 Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
AO6 The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
AO6 The Call of the Wild by Jack London
AO6 Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne
White Fang by Jack London
The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

If you live in America you just can't go wrong with that little lot. Just in time for Christmas too. Ho Ho Ho


  1. Amazon never let us buy from them, they are always telling us they will not deliver to here:(

  2. Why would they deliver here and not there? Too strange.

  4. I've not bought from Amazon before but booko.com.au says that postage to Australia for this set from Amazon is under $10 - not so bad.
    Still, I'd rather scour the op shops for these treasures :)

  5. yes, and oops, that was hubby's account up there :)

  6. You don't get the Free Shipping for an order over $25 in Aus? I'd boycott!

    Great deal!

  7. I've so enjoyed your blog, just awarded you the Versatile Blog Award:)

  8. I was coming to point out that Booko says shipping is less then $10 as well. I assume you know about Booko? It's Australian and allows you to work out the cheapest solution for ordering books.


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
