    Hi all, just coming up to the end of my first year (1 more week!) and wanting to sell some of my books to make funds for new ones :)

    All the books listed below are in either new or nearly new condition (none have been written in or torn or folded) and the pictures are of the actual book taken on the bed next to me lol.

    I believe they are all the newest editions of the books (mostly 2010 onwards) so can be referenced in essays.

    Some books say they have the pageburst function with them but I have used these myself so they won't work so just clarifying that it is the BOOK that I am selling not book + e-package.

    All the books have been very useful and I wouldn't be getting rid of them if I didn't have some new ones to buy. Luckily I do have most of them downloaded on to my computer so am not completely getting rid of them.

    The books are:

    Skills for Midwifery Practice,3rd Edition by Ruth Johnson and Wendy Taylor. Really good for learning any of the clinical skills as it has nice clear diagrams and isn't written all complicated like some books (new condition).
    RRP £37.79:

    Mayes' Midwifery, 14th Edition by Sue Macdonald and Julia Magill-Cuerden. Brilliant for first years (new condition).
    RRP £45.99:

    Physiology in Childbearing, 3rd Edition by Dot Stables and Jean Rankin. Lovely and detailed with lots of images and diagrams (new condition).
    RRP £41.99:

    SOLD


    Introduction to Research for Midwives, 3rd Edition by Colin Rees. Simple to read and well laid out but maybe be suited for someone in their third year? (new condition).
    RRP £22.99:

    SOLD


    The Midwife's Pocket Formulary by Claire Banister. This has been useful and have used it in assignments (new condition).
    RRP/Amazon Price £19.99:

    SOLD

    and finally:

    Letts Revise AS & A2 Biology by John Parker. This book is a little tatty as it was well used when I was doing my AS levels and was used again to get the basics in out anatomy and physiology level. It doesn't provide enough detail for the degree but is really good for refreshing knowledge on different topics (used condition).
    RRP £15.99 but is old!:

    I am looking for offers on the books. I have put the RRP next to the book but this obviously isn't the price I expect (we all like bargains!). If any books aren't bought on here I will ebay them but thought I would offer them to you lovely ladies and gents first.

    If there is interest in any book I will take it to the post office tomorrow (Saturday) or on Tuesday to get a postage quote for whatever delivery method you would like (Royal Mail 2nd Class probably). Didn't want to take them all down today as all of them together would make my arms fall off. Payment by paypal :).

    Feel free to ask any questions x

    Sorry is a bit low because cheapest I've seen it online is £32. I would take £20 + postage though as I've got book fever and no money to cure it x

    I used to read my mayes a lot (the online version) and got myles out of the library to have a look at sometimes and compare how they explained things and I always seemed to prefer the mayes version. I know it varies person to person (and I think there was a poll on here once) but I definitely preferred it. I don't know if you are near CCCU/canterbury but people can go and look at the books in the library which might help you make up your mind before buying one. I'm just a mayes' girl... :) x
