Today's charity shop bargain...

...was The Addams Family, the DVD collection of the first B&W TV series, for £2. Once I'd confirmed they really meant £2 I bought it, of course, and chucked an extra pound into their collecting box for luck.

It's been a good week for this generally - yesterday I got Office 2004 for Mac [1] for £2.50 at another shop, where I also found one of the Harry Dresden books and A Storm of Swords part 2 for 50p each - I was late coming to the series and I've only just finished A Game of Thrones so hopefully I'll pick up the first part of Storm... before I finish A Clash of Kings. And on Monday I got the latest Temperance Brennan novel in hardcover for £2.

[1] I already have Office 2004 but I've used up two of three keys; I'm hoping that one or more of the keys on the one I bought is unused, which will be handy if I need to reinstall.
