We get a 10% discount (I think it's 10%?) from the Technical Bookshop in
Melbourne (Swanston St). Though the last time I was in there the only
dictionary they had was the second volume of the Shorter Oxford. Not
amazingly useful. Though it would provide some interesting constraints
for your writing.

I prefer to go to Reader's Feast (cnr Swanston + Bourke). With their
fidelity program, every six months you receive a book voucher to the
value of 10% of your purchases of the previous six months. So you
effectively get a 10% discount (which you just *have* to spend on
books!). Though it can be a little scary if you receive a voucher for
$70 and then do the maths.

Dymocks also has a fidelity program, but I think you only get around 8%
- at least, they give me a voucher for around $8 every once in a while,
and it's not quite as gratifying as receiving a bigger voucher in the
mail.

Also, Angus and Robertson have a standard 20% discount on all computing
books (at least, their store on Elizabeth St does).

Don't we (ASTC members) get a discount at Technical Books?

Just on the subject of books and reference materials...

Can't speak for everyone here, but I'm regularly buying all sorts of
reference and training books. Sure they're tax deductible, but wouldn't
it
be great if our professional bodies (i.e. ASTC or STC) could negotiate a
small discount (5%?) at say, Dymocks, for members?

Janet et al, have you guys ever approached a major book retailer? I
would
have no idea how to go about it.
