Unless it's something really specialised, try Speedhen or Wordery, both are often the cheapest option for pre-pub offers the former at least, offers free postage as standard, I think they both do?

I buy all my New Naturalists from Speedhyhen these days, here's a link to the next one

https://www.speedyhen.com/Product/Ia...Birds/24445205

and the latest Dragonfly book from Smallshire and Swash which I just purchased.

https://www.speedyhen.com/Product/Da...flies/24680936

Edit: Now I smell a conspiracy!

Both those links come up as 'invalid' with WH Smith, Foyles and Waterstones as options?

Wildsounds have it "in stock for immediate dispatch" for 14.99 including P&P. This time round I ordered via NHBS largely because they had another book I wanted that Wildsounds didn't but perhaps that was a mistake!

Including postage, it's usually now on orders above 20 at Wildsounds which is my usual supplier of choice?

Thanks. I must have misread the blurb. If that's the case then 14.99 plus p&p seems the going rate and NHBS is no more expensive than elsewhere.

Speedyhen has it at 15.44 inclusive of pp but they don't have any yet.

A couple of sellers on Amazon have it at a similar price with free pp too but from their delivery date estimates, I'd say they don't have it yet either.

I ordered two for 29.98 - avoids paying for p and p and will be a nice surprise for one of my birding mates.
