Well, the problems with my laptop continue but I've managed to salvage some data from it so the tours are back on and I have replied to all e mails.

I want to let you all know that I've added the "Mr Linky" feature to each tour post so you can now link your reviews. I would really appreciate it if you would link your past and present reviews of books you've read through the tour site :)

I'm also going to start chasing people who haven't contacted me lately as there are some books that haven't moved in a while. Don't forget that whilst I'm usually quite flexible, you are only supposed to have a maximum period of two weeks to read the book. I realise that now it's Christmas, the post will slow down a little and there will be some delays that are unavoidable so that will be kept in mind.

Can I also take this opportunity to remind people to take good care of the books that are in their posession please as well. And I'd like to ask people who have donated books to the tour site and would like them back at the end of the tour to contact me and remind me which books are theirs so I have a record.

That's it, thanks to everyone for making UK Book Tours a success and Merry Christmas!

As some of you are aware, my laptop has recently died and I'm currently in process of getting it fixed. This has significantly slowed down movement of the tours as all my data is in limbo. I'm pretty sure I can recover it, I'm just waiting for a copy of Windows 7 to arrive so I can do a fresh install. Also, do I need to even mention the weather? This will be the third day in a row the postman has failed to turn up. I don't blame him for the first two days but when someone delivering menus through your front door can turn up, I would expect Royal Mail posties to turn up too but apparently not. I hope they prove me wrong in the next couple of hours!

Anyway, so yes these are the reasons for any delays in replying to your e mails, giving you the contact details for the next person on the tour and receiving books. Please bear with me whilst it all gets sorted out. Thanks x
