My copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Oops! I should make that OUR COPY of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (my wife wants to read it first). Drove down to the nearby Morrisons and grabbed a copy. I was quite surprised because there was so many copies left. I had expected the shelves to be half empty at least. Read my post "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows price war".

There was an elderly couple in front of me at the payment counter and they were really surprised when I told them it cost only £4.99. The husband quickly ran to the display near the entrance to grab a copy for their grandchild.

"People were queuing up for it at midnight", the lady told me. "Yeah!" I replied, "they didn't need to".

Did you say four pounds ninety nine? Seriously? Isn't that only ten or eleven American dollars? I got it for $16.98 through which is half off the cover price as it is!

Price wars are always good for the customer ;-)

The chepest was about RM69.90 at Tesco & Carrefour. It was RM76 at Kino (after 30% disc on the fisrt day). You got it dirt cheap!
