If you are considering buying someone one of our books for Christmas, now is the time to do so. The deadline for guaranteed UK, EU, US & Canada Christmas delivery with “Standard” or “Premium” delivery is quickly approaching!

Hardback and colour books:
Noon GMT on Monday 26 November 2018

All other books:
Noon GMT on Monday 3 December 2018

Orders placed after this date may still be delivered in time to be put in stockings, but we can’t guarantee it. Please note that no guarantees are made for free or Economy delivery.

Why is the deadline so early? We use a production process called print-on-demand, which means your books are printed once your order has been placed, specially for you. Unfortunately this sometimes results in increased lead times, especially around Christmas. The dates above are the dates we have been given by our printers for guaranteed Christmas delivery.

What happens if your books don’t arrive before Christmas as promised? You can either request a refund of the delivery charges, or return your order to us for a full refund. However, you must contact us and await confirmation before you return your order.
