Likewise. Shipping a book is cheaper than shipping Port, no?

Is there any news yet on this subject? How and when would the books become available?

Richard Mayson "Port and the Douro (Infinite Ideas Classic Wine)"
Estimated arrival date: December 15 2012 - December 14 2012'

No news yet. I suspect we will all survive the impact of a short delay :-)

My copy arrived this morning. The production quality looks much better than the previous edition and the author's thank you message to members of this forum early in the Acknowledgements made me smile.
