All book bundles are cheap because they have been discarded from my local bookstore due to imperfections. That could mean a slightly bent cover, a small mark, or water damaged. They are all still in great condition. As far as recommendations go, all have been recommended by the book shop owner. But because they are one off bundles it's up to the buyer to seek out reviews and descriptions if you'd like to know more about each book. Feel free to throw caution into the wind and judge a book (or bundle) by its cover!
