Just got my copy today,and I can see why...
It's one of those books my brother would truly appreciate.
... The home-brewing info alone should give him plenty idea's to work with :drunken:
I think I'll order another one as an Xmas gift.

Just being curious, how well is the Ish bible selling outside the UK?

Well don't get sales figures that often really, occasionlly get a statment but once every 6 months or so. In fact I think now sales have slowed down I won't expect to see another one until July next year. Sales outside the UK, not amazingly well to be honest. I think we had sold about 10 in Australia and 5 in Eire!

So,it's pretty likely that there's only one copy in the Netherlands?

I think so scrap!

Amazon.com have just allowed authors access to Bookscan information meaning we get to know the sales figures for all of our books that have been scanned across the USA. They have also mistakenly given me access to the other Andy Hamiltons sales figures, the one from Radio 4 and it seems that the Selfsufficienish bible has sold a massive 14 books across the USA in the last month and Andy Hamilton 2 has sold 0 copies of old harrys game.

14 copies eh, must be the christmas rush (acutally I am quite pleased with that, thought we were selling one a year in the states)!

Hello Mike - We're told the sales figures whenever we ask for them. I think it's nearer 13000 copies now. I'll ask again after Christmas. Thanks to everyone who realised there are two names on the front cover ;)

Happy Christmas.

Lads, who sells this book over here, the last place on earth? I don't buy from Amazon, btw.

Hello Greenoreise - I don't know who stocks it in Ireland, Andy seems to know that kind of thing. You could see if your local Bookshop will order it in, mine does with most things.

Thanks Dave; that was going to be my next move if I couldn't order it from the comfort of my chair.

Guess what I had for xmas?!

It was requested but I'm surprised to get it as my mother is not very pc savvy, methinks little brother had a hand in this... :cheers:
