Watersheddings Memories (book)

Recommended Posts

Is this available anywhere??

 

I have (irregularly) typed the title into Google,but never been successful in tracking down a copy on Amazon,Abe Books,ebay etc. Can't visit "local" bookshops as I live on the South Coast.

 

Is there another source anywhere?

 

And if the book was so successful (as it clearly is),why didn't the publishers go for a reprint?

 

Thanks.

Sadly the book has been out of print for some time. We took a decision not to reprint as we thought the demand would not cover the minimum reprint costs, which were quite high.

 

At some point the books may be made available electronically, but this won't be for some time yet.

Anyone wanting to sell a copy,please drop me a message.

It does come up on ebay from time to time if that helps 

you can set a search on eBay so that it alerts you when it become available.

I can help set it up, if you need help just shout.

Tried Waterstones and WH Smiths in Oldham today but unfortunately they have none left and Waterstones confirmed that it is out of print. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you

If you mean the magic or myth book they do indeed have one or two in. There are also copies of Craig Halstead's books in as well

Hi folks

The Heritage trust still have copies of some of the books including the 'Kangaroos, Kiwis and ROUGHYEDS' and OLDHAM RLFC In the 1950s. MAGIC or MYTH etc. Sadly we haen't got Watersheddings Memories. There is still a chance we may do a version and out it in the Apple Bookshop later in the year, or similar.

If you want to support the trust we would gladly supply the books direct - message me if you want details.

.......................................................................................................................................................................................

Just a quick note on books - there is a superb book on the Oldham Players & Club from World War 1 coming out in September/October this year. We are hoping to run a patronage scheme on this - I will forward more details when the flyer is sorted.

Thanks all for your support

I have been to Oldham Library today and they have five copies across the borough but none for sale. However they have just emailed me to tell me that the library service have a bookshop in the market hall that sells off old library books. I never knew that before and I go in there regularly. Unfortunately they don't keep records of books in there for sale electronically so they have advised me to call in and have a look. Next time I am up there I will call in.

Hi PL.  I have a copy of the book if you would like to borrow it.

Regards

Wow.....thank you....thats a fantastic offer!

I'll PM you some details.

If you can let me know a mailing address,I will send you cash for postage and an address label for myself,and get the book returned within a week.

If you don't want to post it,I have a brother living close to Rochdale who might be able to collect it on my behalf and then pass it on. An extra link in the chain,but less work for you.

Either way works for me.

PM will be sent tomorrow. Thanks again!!!

Here it is PL if you want to buy your own, still very welcome to borrow mine as well.

Thanks gentlemen!! Above and beyond the call of duty! Much appreciated.

I've joined the auction,so will see how it goes....hopefully,there won't be an avalanche of bidders.

The seller is in Sussex too....same as myself....I even might end up collecting it in person,which will be a strange turn of events!
