Waterstones 3 for 2
I have to voice my disappointment that Waterstones are dropping their 3 for 2 deal, and I am also disappointed that they didn't let their loyalty card holders know. I haven't seen anything in my newsletters. It seems such a sudden decision, and sad, because I have discovered so many new authors this way, taking a gamble with my third book on someone who I had not read before. The excitement of discovering a different writer with a whole new collection of books for me to read. It is such a shame, as I really used to enjoy browsing through all the tables and shelves, spending ages choosing my three books and then heading off home with my pile of purchases. I hope they come up with a suitable alternative.

I have been a medical librarian since 1999, working in academic, primary and secondary care settings, service improvement, knowledge management, and on several national projects. I have set-up and run several current awareness services, including QIPP Alert (http://qippalert.blogspot.com), and I am currently working on a PhD about improving access to good quality health information. You can also access good quality health information from my other blog Patients on the Net (http://patientsonthenet.blogspot.com).
