Which album was that on?
That's actually the name of my emo band*. The album title was "The Ghost Map of Oliver Twist."

*unfortunately not true

I've been hearing/reading lots of good things about 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.'

So far I'm the only vote for it though.

The only place I can find it in the UK has it for £33.54, which is a bit rich for me

Ouch! That's robbery!

I understand the lack of votes then. Maybe later when the price comes down.

I checked on Amazon, and this e-book is not available for customers in Australia.

Is that the price for the e-book?

This would have been my choice as well, except it's not available to me - unless, of course, I go and get it for free...

Yes, from direct ebooks. They seem to sometimes have access to ebooks that are otherwise geo restricted, but this kind of price seems counter-productive to me. I think that offering books at a price nobody will pay is probably worse for business than pruning the catalogue.

Perhaps $32 would be a better price...

Thanks for that - I will check them out too in future. Still seems a bit pricey, but it's at least in line with the hardback price.

Still not found Quirkology or World Without Us anywhere.

You can get a 40% off a purchase coupon in return for writing an approved review:

The approval process takes a few days, but it's a quite good offer.

Could we change On The Origin of Species to reflect the actual name of the book?

Thanks!
