2 for 1 Audio Books offer with the The Independent
Tuesday 28 November 1995
So, in conjunction with HarperCollins, we are offering readers the chance to buy up to 20 "talking books" on a two for the price of one basis. For every two tapes you order, you will pay just pounds 7.99.
The 20 titles, listed on this page, are all highly acclaimed and range from the wry humour of Stephen Fry's The Liar to the masterly invention of Dickens' Great Expectations. The books are read either by the authors or by accomplished actors. For instance, Dylan Thomas leads a full-cast reading of his richly joyful celebration of life in general and Wales in particular, Under Milk Wood.
George Baker unravels the intricate threads of murder and betrayal in Ruth Rendell's The Unkindness Of Ravens, a labyrinthine chiller in the best traditions of this master of suspense.
And Derek Jacobi dons his monkish cowl again as Brother Cadfael swaps devotion for detection in Ellis Peters' The Heretic's Apprentice.
As well as providing entertainment in the home these audio books, which have an average duration of three hours, are also ideal companions on a long car journey and, of course, are greatly appreciated by the visually handicapped.
To obtain your two for the price of one audio books you must collect four differently numbered tokens from the seven we will be publishing in the Independent on Sunday and the Independent.
Token three is published today and we will print an order form in tomorrow's Independent and again on Saturday.
When you have collected four tokens, you may order as many audio books as you wish, in multiples of two. The cost per pair of titles is pounds 7.99 which includes free postage and packing.
Please allow 28 days delivery from receipt of your order. If you want your order delivered in time for Christmas, it must be received by December 6th. The offer closes on 12 December 1995. Photocopies of tokens are not acceptable. Offer is subject to availability.
If you have any queries, please call the Harper Collins Audio Books Helpline on 01442 824141.
Your order will benefit the Independent's Children Of War Appeal, which raises funds to help young victims of the tragedy that has engulfed the former Yugoslavia. For every pounds 7.99 order received, pounds 1 will be donated to our appeal.
The Appeal supports four charities active in the field: Children Advocacy International; British Red Cross Former Yugoslavia Appeal; War Child and Save The Children.
