If you could put any of our books on your Christmas list, which would you choose?
OK, I realise that our books are unlikely to appear very near the top of anyone’s Christmas list. (We can always wish!) But if there is one book of ours that you’d really like to own and haven’t yet got round to buying, let us know which one it is and why you’d really like it.
We will give everyone who responds to this question a 20% discount code and will give one lucky respondent a free copy of their chosen book. Please share this offer with your friends and colleagues. The winner will be announced on Thursday, 15th December.
Royal mail strikes
As you will know, we use Royal Mail to send out smaller orders. Unfortunately, their planned strike days in December mean that it might take slightly longer for orders to reach you. If you need an order in a hurry, please add a note in the Order notes (optional) box on the Checkout page when you place your order and we will try to help.
Don’t forget – our ebooks are available from our website 24/7.
Do you know what a ‘contronym’ is? (If you do – well done!)
I learned what a contronym is today and had to share it with you. Contronyms are words that have two contradictory meanings. For example:
Bolt – to secure OR to flee
Left – remained OR departed
Weather – to wear away OR to withstand
Aren’t they fun? Can you or your pupils think of any others? They are quite rare.
