I like free postage!

Lara, I found 'Gentle Art of Domesticity' on this site
Free Postage Australia wide!
Ooh I'm itching to push the button.

Just found out Jane Brocket has a new book coming: Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer
(no picture yet, but I love the blurb:

If as a child you devoured Enid Blyton's classics like the Famous Five or Malory Towers, or loved to lose yourself in the adventures of Pippi Longstocking or What Katy Did, then CHERRY CAKE AND GINGER BEER is the book for you. A wonderfully nostalgic cookery book, it will take you straight back to your favourite children's books and show you how to cook the feel-good foods that feature so strongly in them. So, you'll find recipes for Milly Molly Mandy's Treacle Tart, a Swallows and Amazons Boat Breakfast, the Famous Five Fruit Cake and St Clare's Eclairs amongst others. Divided into appropriate sections like High Tea Treats, Midnight Feasts and Seaside Picnics, each recipe is introduced with an evocative description of the book that inspired it. Guaranteed to take you straight back to your childhood, the book is an escapist treat for grown-ups and will encourage you to re-visit much-loved classics and share them with the next generation.

One mention of Pippi and Famous Five and I am so in.
It's so deliciously English!

My finger is itching too! A bit out of my budget at the moment unfortunately - maybe my library will get it in! Thanks very much Bron.
