A whole ONE of my LMB books was bought secondhand ("Komarr").  She really 
doesn't seem to show up in the second-hand shops at all.

Do any of the bookshops in Cambridge import US editions of books?  One of 
the ones in Dublin does, and those editions are rather cheaper than the UK 
ones (usually EUR7ish as opposed to EUR10ish).  So it might be worth having 
a look around for US imports of LMB - that's what most of my collection is! 
(Or, depending on shipping prices, ordering through Amazon.com or some other 
US online bookseller.)

Until the sky falls on our heads...
