Just to let everyone know that this has now gone to Print on Demand so if anyone wishes to have a copy please either contact Matador direct or go via Amazon.

Thanks Lesley ! That will be good, have wondered whether it was ever to be available. Glad to know, and hope you get a lot of purchases.

ETA Or rather - available easily :D

Thanks Lesley! Never really fancied paying £100 on Amazon... :lol:

That's good news, Lesley. I was recommending it at the North West Chalet meeting at the weekend and said it was POD soon.

There are three new copies on Amazon for around £7.00.

Thanks for letting us know Lesley. I was always annoyed with myself for not ordering it first time round, especially when I saw the secondhand prices. Now I have finally ordered my copy from Amazon. I am hoping that I will be able to save it for my holiday in October, but that's a bit unlikely given my past track record at saving books.

I ordered via Amazon last week but have just had an E-mail to say that the Book Depositry has not acknowledged the order!

Well they are still advertising it.

It's unusual for Book Depository to make a mistake as they are now a part of amazon. There is another copy for £7 from the US and another for £7 shipped from the UK. You might have better luck with them.

Alternatively you could contact the seller and ask if they really have the book and then buy it.

This has now shipped. I suspect Amazon has a "timed" E-mail which goes out if goods are not shipped within a certain number of days.

They do. I forgot to confirm the dispatch of a book and had an email reminding me to dispatch it. The buyer probably already had the book before Amazon reminded me.

Though sellers do have to confirm dispatch as they don't get paid until they do. I must have been flush with money that week! Makes a change!

Mine has come and I want to read it but I'm reading the whole series in order so it'll just have to wait a bit.

Do you know, I've never read the whole series in order, including fill-ins. I've always intended to do this - perhaps now I have a bit of time on my hands I'll start. It would certainly help to slot the fill-ins to their correct places and see how the books either side are more rounded as a result of the fill-in.

Have people generally done this?

Yup, I've done it several times (although I don't always include all the fill-ins). I hardly ever pick up a one-off CS book to read but always like to read them in order.

I get be-fuzzled by the titles. I decide to start one at random, then I see another and think, 'oh, I'd like to read that again!', and on it goes, all over the place.

I shall simply have to be more disciplined, I think!

I have all the CS titles in paperback so I have often read the series all the way through from beginning to end but I've never and will never include the fill-ins as part of that. Most of them are interesting and quite well-written but they're just not part of the Chalet School for me.

I read them all through every year or two. Sometimes I include the fill-ins, but not always. I plan to read the series backwards next time, just to see how it strikes me...

If you read right through and sometimes include the fill-ins, do you think it alters how you perceive canonical titles?

Not at all, really. It more affects the way I read the fill-ins; because I'm reading them in chronological order, I get more of a feeling for the context and how the fill-in fits with the rest of the series.
