neutral  Sheila Wilson: It refers to "our library" so it's already exclusive to them. In this case the deal will be exclusive to the reader, surely? As in "just for you" (and the other half-million people who are receiving this email).

  -> Not necessarily, Sheila; it could, for example, bee that the publications in this 'library' are available from other stockists, but not this particular offer...
