5% topcashback as well they have the code as well so should validate ok

be nice to get the others around this price - 1 audio book on amazon is £18 so bargain here

Join audible is another option monthly subscription buy one a month £21. There's also a thread on here am sure these are posted so can get a book free. Realise not the same as cd but having had kids, sticky fingers and scratches then shelves full of unplaced cd/dvd just another option.

Audible might be £8 a month but I buy some extra credits sometimes cheaper and when go to cancel have got offered another credit.

good for me as i have been looking for these for a long time - amazon have complete set for a mere £322.76

Check out this post for audible books if helps guess you can all get the 4th book this way.

Great price and brilliant Christmas present to keep them quiet for ages. My kids loved listening to the mesmersing Mr Fry.

Wish this was mp3 as no doubt 25 discs will gradually get lost/scratched... heat and ordered still!

Why not rip the cds to mp3 when you get them?

Why not rip the cds to mp3 when you get them?

Personally I think that's a very good idea, I would at that cost, just wanted to point out the uk high court sided with the music industry and made ripping for backup purposes of your own cds illegal with the exception of joke or parody versions of songs. Part of the reason I like to own online versions. I don't agree with that ruling just remember how stupid it's was.

Audible also allows you to burn to CD if you so desire

Obviously you'd have to factor in the cost of the CDs as well though

Should be teaching children to read not listen to audiobooks

My kids do both, however we spend more time on teaching them manners and how not to tell others how to live their lives, something you maybe missed out on?

That's funny because people always compliment me on my children's exemplary manners. I spend absolutely zero time 'teaching' them manners, it's just something we've reinforced as their parents.

Maybe if you're spending more time teaching manners than helping academically, maybe look at your own manners (ironically)....

My personal belief is that children do not read enough, something the teaching profession agrees with. If I want to state that fact on a PUBLIC forum I will. Harry Potter books are first and foremost for children, so my original statement stands. Children need to read more books, I didn't get upset when my Children's teachers suggested the same, I took the advice on board.

I'm a primary school teacher and can tell you from a position of absolute authority that both physical books and audio books have place in a child's education. Audiobooks allow children to engage with and access texts that are above and beyond their own reading level. It's why good parents spend so much time reading to their kids when they're young.

Nothing beats reading, that is a fact, and just because you're a teacher it doesn't make you speak from a 'position of absolute authority', who do you think you are, God????

My wife is also a teacher in Primary school, and whilst have no problem with the children listening to audiobooks, it is always secondary to actual text. Her opinion differs from yours completely, and she has just laughed at your 'absolute authority' comment.

So yes you're right, good parents read to their children when they're young, not so good switch on an audiobook and leave them to it....another reason to avoid them, thanks for supporting my view

You have an awful lot to say for someone who can't actually read:

"both physical and audio books have a place in a child's education"

Maybe you should buy some audiobooks, it might help you better understand what people are saying

p.s. Say hello to your "wife" (that totally exists and isn't a convenient fabrication to prove a point) for me.

You clearly don't like it when you're challenged....I bet you're a fun teacher!

Why on earth would I fabricate having a wife and two children to make a point on a cheap deal website!!

I have a wife of 10 years, a 9 year old son, and 7 year old daughter. My son and daughter are both excelling academically and that can be put down to the amazing grounding my wife gave them both (thankfully could afford for her to stay at home until they both started school), which was primarily instilling a love of reading from an early age.

My wife is a primary School teacher, and has always impressed on our children, and to the parents of others that one of the most critical foundations of vocabulary and comprehension is reading. A child with a wider vocabulary will have a much better chance statistically of passing 11+ entry exams without having to pay for a tutor.

So, yes, I do have an awful lot to say about it as not only do I have a strong opinion on the subject, I have seen first hand evidence of its importance with my own children.

Be as sarcastic as you like, your opinion is yours and mine is mine.

Great life story. Unfortunately you still haven't exhibited any signs that you've actually read and understood my original, or subsequent message. Let me spell it out....

Audiobooks 👏 Can 👏 Be 👏 A 👏 Useful 👏 Tool 👏 For 👏 Teaching 👏 Children 👏 Alongside 👏 Regular 👏 Books.

Nobody, not one person here, has stated that audiobooks should be a replacement for regular books.
