We have been inundated with requests for the next 6 titles in the Nonesuch Dickens, which we had intended to print in time for this Christmas. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons we won't be publishing these books this Christmas. We hope that we will be able to publish them for Christmas 2007 and will keep you posted on that. We have had such good feedback on the books and we certainly haven't forgotten about them.

On a more positive note, The Week-End Book has been well received in the run up to Christmas. The Oldie said: ‘Mug up on your parlour games and sporting jollities and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun’. And Harpenden Life called it ‘A charming and always entertaining slice of social history’.

The Week-End Book had a great review in Country Life Magazine this month, in which Mary Miers said:

"When last I was given a Week-End Book to review, I thought what a terrific present it would make afterwards - but I could not bear to give it away. I feel the same about the 2006 edition"
