Mine was delivered about 5 minutes ago, apparently the courier tried to deliver on the 17th already but I wasn't home.  So maybe yours is the same Hally, Alyce has tracking numbers so it will be easy to find where it is.

What a fabulous book, only quickly leafed through the pages but there were many jumping out at me  :)

Mine came this afternoon.

Its outside in the garden, it smells bad, diesel, chemicals not sure what. Cant even open it to browse atm.

The bag smelt, but i thought the book woud be ok. Goodness knows where it was stored.

So its outside freshening up, hope its going to be ok.

Hally, maybe you could try wrapping it in a plastic bag with something nice smelling?  Like a perfume tester strip that you like......or some vanilla on paper towel....

Hope the fresh air sorts it out!  Sounds like that courier had something noxious happen in the back of his van!

How awful Hally, after you've waited so long for it to arrive  :(

I'd get the phone number for the courier company from the stinky bag and call them up and complain

I'm sure Alyce would want to know about this Hally, she is bound to have to send more copies over to the West and wouldn't want this happening again.

I ordered my copy on Wednesday and it was delivered today which was nice and quick, but mine smells too of chemicals.  I think it may be printing ink or the binding glue.  The smell is fading as I use it thankgoodness. I may try the suggestion of putting it in a bag with some perfume or chocolate.  Despite the smell it is a beautifully presented  book and it has tempted me to make two things from it already - the salmon patties and the sweet potato and chickpea soup - both of which we enjoyed. The recipes were quick and easy.
