Does anyone here visit Oxford regularly?

I was thinking of buying 122 magazines on Ebay but the postage is £40 or pick up free in person.
Worth asking the question I suppose.
Yes Bridie, you do.

I agree shipping costs are now grossly excessive. I recently ordered a book 92.5 kg it was 54 pounds and the shipping 47 pounds.

A book weighing 92.5kg?! I would think £47 is a snip for something that heavy. How many men did it take to get this 92.5kg book into your house?

A slight error crept into my comment it should be 2.5kg. A bit of a difference?

Sounds like Bob Dylan's 'The Lyrics Since 1962'

I was thinking it was an MPs expenses claim.
