New year. New Books

2021 at last. You can't deny that 2020 was a pretty horrible year for everyone. But with a new year comes fresh hope that things will get back to some sort of normal. At some point.

Pandemic and Brexit headaches are still causing a few issues, but we are working harder than ever to get our fine books into your fine, anti-bacterially cleansed hands.

First off, we should say that our customers in Europe could see orders being delayed in some instances. We say 'could,' because there is no pattern to where and what gets delayed; some customers are seeing delays, while their neighbours in the same locality aren't. Generally, delays are short – only a day or two – where they do occur, so please allow a few extra days to receive your orders, just to be safe.

Second, we'd like to mention that we ship direct to the US and Canada from our UK HQ. The US and Canada usually sees stock arrive two or three months after a book’s UK release, so many of our American and Canadian customers are choosing to order direct from us, and receive their orders before a official release in their territory …  and with a thrifty 35% off when using our STAY-INDOORS-AND-READ code, they can make a saving over other sellers. Get ahead of the game and get your copy before 'official' releases in the US or Canada by ordering direct from us. 

Our programme may have been pruned a little, and we still have to deal with a few 'unknown unknowns', but we're keeping calm and carrying on. Let's kick-off our new year books with something you can get right away.
