Various Abacus books for sale.

Amiga C for Advanced Programmers
Amiga 3D programming in Basic
Amiga C for Beginners
Amiga Tricks and Tips

No disks for those ones that had optional disks (3D programming, Disk drives).

How about AU$5 or AU$30 for the lot, plus P&P.

Weight will be at least 5 kilo for all of them in one.

huuu mommy I want my abacus books

just kidding it seems you posted before me and I know it's much more convenient for whiteb to ship them all at once so I can totally understand

good luck with the books

btw, I found a page which reviews some amiga books, looks nice if you want to know what you'll be getting.

huh? I entered the thread to see what was for sale because I am trying to collect the entire Abacus Set of Books realised I had all of them (that was good) and also realised they had been purchased... I am simply conveying this information.

Your comment obviously stems from something else that is bugging you no doubt... I have no idea... perhaps you need to rethink your objection...

Okay, all that is left of the set now, is one copy of 'Amiga 3D programming in Basic', Due to not realizing I actually (Somehow) had 2 copies.

I have no objections at all

but I dont think "I`m to late" & "I already have them" conveys the same info as your second post

just an opinion

good luck with the sale whiteb

Another EAB user who doesn't like admitting when they are wrong... LOL... nevermind, seems to me I'm too late (is I am too late to bid if I wanted too) and But I'm happy to report (means Its a good thing I didn't miss out on anything) And you did object to what I said...

you can be as judgemental as the next person if you like but doesn't mean you are justified in every instance... also, just an opinion can probably explain 80% of the posts on this forum, it is not an acceptable disclaimer in this case ;-)

going slightly off topic - does anyone know the titles of Abacus books number 6 and 7 please and does anyone have a copy for sale? thanks.

There were 13 in the series weren't there plus the 'Amiga Intern' ?

EDIT: amazing what google finds, so answering my own question:

Amiga System Programmers Guide (Abacus). Amiga series book #6.
Advanced System Programmers Guide for Amiga (Abacus). Amiga series book #7. ( Brakus - want to part with the copy you just bought? )

looks like 16 books in the Amiga Blue series:
Amiga Desktop Video Guide (Abacus). Amiga series book #14.
Amiga Printers Inside and Out (Abacus). Amiga series book #15.
Making Music on the Amiga (Abacus). Amiga series book #16.

Hi Peter,

Does it have a number on the spine? (All the ones I've listed above do, with the exception of the AmigaDOS Quick Reference, but they're all blue, like the ones in the opening post.)
