I am still waiting for my Amazon UK order, so in the meantime, I purchased it from Google Play. Not quite the same, but will tie me over until January :)
Ummm . I do have a voucher for some money off an ebook from Google.

Very tempted to buy a digital copy too now.

I got a digital copy and out the blue my Amazon copy turned up on Sunday.
I only just realised today as I had quite a few Christmas presents delivered and it was only when I opened some of the boxes to start wrapping that I spotted it...
Only had a quick skim through but looks great from what I have seen

Sorry the delay guys. I don't fully understand the situation with Amazon myself.

You could try ordering through an independent book store, but I don't know how long shipping would take, as the publishers are in the USA.

You can also pre-order signed through my website www.georgefarmerstudios.com/book - I am expecting a delivery of 500 copies early Jan.

there’s a big old mess in the ports, presumably anything non perishable is being downgraded in priority and not made available to the onward shippers, Honda has just had a shut down as its parts are stuck outside the port. unfortunately books are probably seen as a very suitable item for spending a bit of extra time in a container, so in time we will see them making it to the end customer, but I could be way off piste

Just had the same email. Also very disappointing but not a lot you can do.
Wouldn't be as bad if there was an explanation as to why or how there are some getting about.
No one's fault I guess but feels better to mini rant about it 🥲 brave face!

Amazon finally sent me a message about estimate arrival date of George's book. Crazy but I have to wait 2 months more...😳. At least they put available date. Unfortunately February is still so far

I had another e-mail from Amazon today saying "Estimated arrival date: January 19 2021 - February 15 2021", so I guess you are ahead of me :)

Amazon delivered my copy this morning, a month earlier than stated. For those still waiting for their copy at least we now know Amazon are finally fulfilling orders, and hopefully yours will be delivered without further delay ;)

Btw, it's worth the wait, especially if you're just starting out. I haven't had chance to read it through properly but George looks to have filled the empty niche for a one stop shop aquascaping book.

Just received my copy about of the blue and it looks amazing. Can’t wait to read it.
Was pre-ordered in March from Amazon with last due date updated to 15th Feb. Hope this helps
