We had a few delivery problems due to a rural address, but the books were enjoyed once we got them.

Decent Selection - vaue realised after three titles

I'm not typically a buyer of this sort of deal. That said, it was a good purchase. Overall there was only a couple of titles where I thought 'meh' - purely on taste preferences, not to malign those authors' work. The first two titles I read were truly excellent and would have cost me around $40 NZ in a bookshop, the third read is also proving excellent. On that basis, I've had my $100 out of the deal, with several to go. I like the fact I wasn't buying 'blind' - content-wise. If the titles were suitable in say, the sciences, I'd buy again if the pack I have is any guide to go by.


The person I gifted it to, was absolutely delighted
