After 34 years of teaching and spending probably thousands of pounds of my own money on subsiding the education service and keeping myself up-to-date, I would like to try and recoup some of this and clear some space in my study at the same time!

For comments or enquiries about books, please email: Gertie Grumbles.
A mixed bunch of things here: software, computer hand held game, foam things, toys, RE, French, about teaching, geography, info, maths, novelties, games, fiction history etc
Prices are in pounds and maybe 50p's - I can't make the pound sign without it looking like this, any more - £, so prices look like 2 (for 2 pounds) or 2.50, which is a bit more obvious. (Perhaps I should add 50p on to each??)
Most of these books have been labelled with my name and then stayed on my own bookshelf, in case they were ever needed - and have only had the lightest flip through, by me. Most are hardback. Sorry the photos are not brilliant - had to take them from funny angles because of the flash reflecting off the shiny covers!

Email me to buy and for payment details. I will accept a cheque or internet banking transfer but paypal is easiest and fastest, the best - as long as you pay using family and friends so I don't get charged commission! my paypal is my email address

Email me (gertie at grumbles dot me dot uk )and I will tell you the cost for the postage
.
Buying more books makes the postage better value. I am open to offers on prices too if you buy several items! Be cheeky and try it on!
