Great spot, cheers for this. Being a top Bond fan and not having all the books already (shame) this is a great buy.

Tempted to go for these.

I have all the books from when they were released with the semi-naked women on the cover. I was thinking of re-reading them just the other day but dont want to risk de-minting them

These are classic books & well worth the read.

There are three missing from the set which are:
For Your Eyes Only
&
Octopussy

Both of these are a collection of short stories & have no link story arch wise with the other books (quite a few of the Bond books need to be read in order).

The other one that is missing is The Man with the Golden Gun. Fleming died just after finishing the first draft of this book & as a result it lacks all the detail that Fleming used to add in after the first draft, & is no where as good as the others.

The strange thing is that the set states "10" books, but listeds 11 of them?

If you're looking for Christmas gifts, how about eight cookery books for £9.99 (the Nigel Slater books are brilliant). Titles are: Real Fast Puddings, Real Fast Food, Italian Food, A Book of Mediterranean Food, Summer Cooking, English Food, A Celebration of Soup and English Seafood Cookery - see details here.

I got the James Bond books. The cookery books (will do for presents) and I also got the Roald Dahl books for my future kids as the books about today are rubbish.
