Good News Everybody!

I'm back from my small break, so the Inventory is back on-line.

I didn't forget Diplomatist Books while I was away and have a table full of books to add to stock.  So over the next week expect some interesting titles on most of the areas we cover - stand-outs are titles on the History of Exploration, the Napoleonic Wars and the First World War.  Details will be put on our Facebook page as the updates are made.

As ever, feel free to contact us if you'd like to flag your 'wants'.

A Word of Explanation...

I'm sorry not to have done this earlier but I'll like to advise why those of you trying to search our stock are getting the message
This seller's inventory is temporarily unavailable. Please try your search with another AbeBooks Bookseller.
Well, the first thing to say is don't try another seller!  The second is to reassure you that the reason is nothing more sinister than a short holiday.  We will be back up and running next week.

As ever, I've kept my book-head on and this afternoon have bought some more goodies for your consideration.

Tackling the Book Mountain

Over on The Blog With No Name Ian is doing an interesting thing.   He's taken three books that have been languishing on his To-Read pile and is asking his readers to vote on which he should read next.

This tickles my fancy, and I sincerely hope it becomes A Thing among bloggers.  I shall certainly do it on my personal blog as soon as a slot arises in my reading*.  I think most of us can relate to Ian's situation.  My wife recently reduced my To-Read pile by two-thirds by the simple expedient of having me remove the table by my bed and replacing it with a small bookcase!

Not this one!

* For the record I'm currently reading a book on Room 40 (the naval code-breakers in World War I), one on Bletchley Park, and Pratchett and Baxter's The Long Earth.
