During the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the things we’ve all had to get used to is shortages on goods. Some are random, some are expected. Some are very annoying. One that will affect Anglotopia directly is the looming paper shortage.
Yes, there’s going to be a paper shortage. You can read all about it here. But basically, there’s a shortage on paper (the kind books are printed on), but also there are backlogs at the ports that bring finished books (and materials to make them) into the USA. Add a labor shortage – and truck driver shortage, it’s going to create all sorts of unexpected delays. Even our own books, from our small little publishing house, are going to be affected.
Our own printer is telling us to get our orders in for author copies as soon as possible as the closer we get to Christmas, they won’t be able to fulfill orders.
So, we want to put the word out to anyone considering gifting our books for Christmas and urge you to order your books as soon as possible.
As of today, we have plenty of copies of our books on hand, they will ship right away if you order now. But we cannot guarantee the availability of our books the closer we get to Christmas because we will struggle to get more. Once we run out, we may be out until well after Christmas.
So, please, order your Christmas books as soon as possible.
We have plenty on hand and can ship them directly to you. Amazon and other booksellers also appear to have great stock levels right now – so you can order from them as well. But this will likely change the closer we get to Christmas. Amazon will likely have the lowest prices (we get paid the same from them no matter how much they charge). We’re going to share three links – the link to buy it directly from us, the link to buy it on Amazon, and a link to AllBookstores.com where you can compare where to buy amongst all the other booksellers out there.
Here’s a breakdown of our most popular titles with links on where to buy:

We had plans to publish a few more titles this year, but with the looming shortage, we may have to push them to early 2022. They’ll be worth the wait!
