I agree with you there. And the old site seemed to remember your sizing preferences. I've very much of the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' school of thought. :D

The new system seems a lot quicker as well. The old one would sometimes drive me mad(der) where it would take so long.

I find it freezes quite a bit at times when you want to replace the original with the edited one, but I like the library on the front page when opened.

at least its a quick and easy site compared to any other though right? It's been a while since I used photobucket or any image hosting site for that matter what with not actually having a computer (computer? or computor?...) any more but I remember photobucket being the preffered choice for quick and easy picture sharing, THE fastest image hosting site in fact. basically what Im trying to say is, don't worry, be happy!

I've decided not to rush out and buy it or pre order it like I normally do but just wait and see what reviews come out about it.

I'm going to see about getting a numbered/signed copy or rather "hope waterstones brings out one" :lol:

Only place you will get a signed copy now is from PJSM Prints.

I have the numbered slipcase collectors edition pre-ordered from Waterstones. Getting it signed will have to wait until Mr. P does a signing somewhere near Gloucester.

My slipcased numbered edition of "The Long Earth" is 31/1000, would dearly love to have that signed as well.

Bones, Terry really isn't able to do signings these days. The only way to get a book signed is by buying it via PJMS Prints. :?

Very useful info, thanks.

I noticed that a signed slipcased edition of "The Long Earth" on PJMS was £100; A little too much for me. I have to admit a signed book would be a byproduct of being able to say hello to one of my literary heroes, the signature itself is only half the story.

I'll have to content myself with the knowledge that at least I've got a low numbered copy of the collectors edition.

I am, however, looking forward to having the cased editions of both books with their gorgeous covers side by side gracing my shelves.

Apologies folks, what I intended as a humorous post, read as extremely churlish. to anybody who read before the edit I apologize.

Nothing to apologise for, Bones. In fact I have no idea what you think you did that you are apologising for. :lol:
