They said it was due to backlog at the port.

Another email, now delayed until early December, same reasons as before, and this could change again, so may not actually be available this side of Christmas.

Keep hoping .... early December is sill a few weeks before Christmas. I don't mind if it will be delivered on the 24th of December [-o<
(I hinted my son for this as a present for me ... )

Indeed ... I had to buy this for myself for Christmas, since I almost certainly won't be getting anything from anyone else. :lol:

Further email today saying the Container ship with the books is due into Folkestone Port on 22nd November , after which delivery takes 5-7 days to get to distributors.

They hope everyone gets their copy by Christmas.

Fingers crossed !

Latest update on idesine.com. Shouldn't be long now.

"The good news is that the books have now arrived in the UK and should be clearing Felixstowe Port on Monday, after some help from the port authorities. We expect to confirm a despatch date in the next couple of days."
