It may be that one of those books is slowing the rest of them up. If you asked for all of them to come together. If you make them separate orders you may get them sooner.

Yes but watch out that you don't end up paying postage (on UK Amazon you don't pay postage for orders of £15 and above).

But Debra is right, it depends on whether the book is "in stock" or not according to Amazon's (not always accurate) records.

BTW I enjoyed "One day the ice..." when I read it on holiday.
