For those who may want an electronic reading copy, on sale this month (November) for $1.99. Sorry for the late notice, I have been really swamped!

Sorry, USA deal only (not on sale in the UK).

I agree with Stu in that they don't add intrinsic value. But, having had/seen the occasional one in the past (and connecting to another recent thread), having a full case for a book can protect it immeasurably, preserving fragile dyes in the dustjacket from UV light for example. That way the book is still on your shelf and not in a storage box out of the way, but it is still completely protected.
