    Dear All,

    Please advise the following situation... thz...

    Kowloon Book Store (KBS) posted to their customers a catalogue containing a list of law books available in their shop. The catalogue stated that the KBS will post any book listed in the catalogue upon the receipt of a written order and a cheque for the price of the book.

    Janice who received one of the catalogues through the post, wrote to KBS asking them to send her a copy of Business Law in Hong Kong, one of the books listed in the catalogue and enclosing a cheque for $300 for its price. KBS replied to Janice stating that this book is no longer in stock. The cheque is also returned back to Janice/.

    Janice is very annoyed having planned to use this book for writing up her contract law assignment. She wished to sue KBS.

    Advise Janice. Give reasons for your advice.

    Catalogues don't count as an offer, just an invitation to treat, Grainger & Son v Gough. So her sending a letter and cheque was the offer, which they declined.
