Biz Bundles: Theatre Arts Textbooks

Each month we will be featuring a selection of titles that can be bundled together to receive discounts. We have decided to refer to this offer, curiously enough, as “Biz Bundles”. How the Biz Bundle Discount works is that we here at Biz Bundle Central will select a number of ‘co-ordinating titles’. You, the ‘Bundler’, then choose from amongst them to ‘mix and match ’ the titles you need. The more of these titles that you buy, the more of a discount you receive.
Teachers are the focus of our first Biz Bundle selection. Stay tuned for more Biz Bundle offers in upcoming issues.  This offer is only valid until December 31st, 2004 and cannot be combined with any other offer.
