Aren't real encyclopaedias volumes big? I remember having like 15 volumes in our house, but was thinking would quickly go out of date so the only sure fire hit would be an online version.

Links not working

Good deal. Heat added.

It would also make a nice 'top up' pressie.

I'm a tad confused as to whether its the encyclopedia you're buying, as the pic shows the encyclopedia but the description is of the atlas ?
#11
I don't want to buy an encyclopedia and end up with an atlas lol
#12
Sorry to sound like a spoil sport, but isn't it widely acknowledged that encyclopedias were made obsolete by the internet?

When I was a kid, a couple of decades ago, these things were useful, to find out a little bit of out-of-date information on new subjects. I suppose they're still good for people who can't afford internet access...?

Nothing replaces a good book esp when it comes to kids - try and keep them off the computer I say!

Don't forget the £5 off £10 spend voucher.
You could get something else for £6 and get £5 knocked off.
#17
what voucher?

Good Deal -Heated up

Internet is great, but picking up a PC or picking up a book are not the same thing when teaching your kids!

Very good spot mate.

One of my nephews is going to be happy with this :)

nice 1, this will do sum1 for krimbo
#21
Bear in mind that the atlas was published in 2006, so is already two years out of date. As such, it will have entirely incorrect maps for Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo to name just a few.

The Atlas and Encyclopaedia turned up today - couldn't believe the total weight and the size of the box that W.H. Smith's shipped it in - very heavy! Must have cost them a fiver in postage, so shipping it for free and very quickly was great. Yes, they are indeed clearance items making way for newer editions no doubt (the 2006 publishing date probably makes the atlas less useful than it could have been), but I knew that and they'll make great toilet reading :)

Now anyone seen the 2008 Chambers dictionary going cheaply anywhere - I tend to buy an edition every 5 years and leave one at work and one at home. Yes, I know the Net has online dictionaries galore, but I like to have a paper one too (and Chambers is way better than the Oxford, Collins or any other - it's why it's the official Scrabble dicitionary for one thing).

A £25 book for £3.99 is a good deal, and some kids like books like this (despite the Internet).

However, there is no way this book is worth £25. Where do they get their prices from? Is it just a figure they pluck from the air, so they can show a massive discount when they sell it for less?

I've still marked this as hot, since it's a good find by the OP.
