Just a quick word to let you know we’re still here; summer is a slow time for us bunnies, and our GEOGRAPHY issue has been delayed a little.
Currently we’re thinking we’ll aim for another double launch of GEOGRAPHY and PHILOSOPHY together, but we’ll let you know more news as and when we have it.
As always, link up with us on our Facebook page to stay up to date.
Happy (hoppy) holidays!
