Whitcoulls
There's a big sale on at the moment, but not really anything for Star Wars fans other than the new Lego Star Wars The Visual Dictionary - Expanded and Updated , which you can currently get in the 30% off Children's Books pricing ... late this afternoon there was one copy left at Albany (ex-Borders), but none at the smaller Albany branch nor Browns Bay.

There is also a new Dorling Kindersley sticker book: Darth Vader's Empire Ultimate Sticker Book.

Nice. Does it tie in directly to the stories from the TV series, or is it independent of them?
