More market tat

Yesterday's Portobello Road bargain was a Zenit E SLR with a very clean 58mm f2 lens, case, instruction manual and a 1970s brochure about Russian cameras for £15; I'm going to sell the lens separately from the rest, they usually fetch £20-ish, and the camera and instructions, case, and brochure separately and hope they'll bring in a couple of quid apiece.

Today I got a 60w MagSafe charger for £6 - seems to work so should be a nice little earner - another black Mac Pro keyboard for £2, missing its escape key but otherwise in good nick and working well, and an ice cream machine for £3 - I actually only want the tub from this, since my old one began to leak copper sulphate and stopped working, but the machine is cleaner than my old one so I'm not going to complain.

Of course the original idea when I started selling stuff was to get rid of all the crap I already had, but never mind...

Getting ePubs of books I own in hardcover

I bought Bujold's last two Vorkosigan books in dead tree format, but I'd really like to have the epub versions too, as I do for the other books of the series - the hardcover of Cryoburn included a CD-ROM with all of the others. I'm going to ask Baen about this, but since it's Sunday I'd imagine they're closed right now - does anyone know if they do any sort of deal?
