Please Note

Books that are designated under “Required Texts” are books that you will need for your course. “Recommended Texts” will be helpful for your assignment writing and worthwhile texts to add to your library, but won’t be needed for course reading.

Following are websites that you can order your textbooks from. The Book Depository does not charge postage. Alternatively you could order through the Manna Store henderson@manna.co.nz or through Manna Online. If you choose to do this, allow plenty of time for delivery.

Electronic books: Be aware that you can often buy the books cheaper through Amazon as electronic Kindle books. To read these you can down load free software “Kindle for PC” and read them on a laptop or you can buy a Kindle e-Reader or use a tablet (ipad etc). The advantages are price (often about $10) and instant delivery. The possible downside is having to read it on a laptop.
