On the Edge of my Seat, the book of my reports on Somerset’s 2019 County Championship campaign is now available. There are reports on every day of the campaign, team lists, summary scorecards (top run scorers and wicket takers), black and white versions of Mike’s Taunton photos, and of my photos of all away grounds except Chelmsford, outline 2019 Championship statistics and some statistics covering Somerset’s current time in the first division (2008 to date).

Softcover. 336 pages. 81 photos. £13.00.

As last year, the 2019 book is available from Brendon Books, Bath Place, Taunton, and from County Sports at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

The 2019 format is the same as for my book of 2018 Championship match reports, copies of which are still available at £12.99, although the 2018 book did not contain team lists.

Anyone who would like to buy a copy of either book but cannot get to Taunton please contact me by PM and I will endeavour to get a copy to you.

Both of my books:

On the edge of my seat - Somerset CCC in the County Championship 2019

are now available online from Christopher Saunders Cricket Books and Memorabilia.

The link to his website, which has a cornucopia of cricket items, books and otherwise, is here:

How is the supply chain looking Farmer? I can't see any reason to stockpile, but have people been panic buying?

Only panic if you buy SLLL. It is 336 pages of fantastic Somerset torment. On the bright side, if the 2020 season is cancelled, you can keep reading through 2019 on a continuous loop. The chain is well stocked.

Currently devouring my complimentary copy with mingled delight and anguish, many thanks Farmer.

And thank you for the complimentary professional proofread Mike. It seems grossly unfair you should have to suffer it twice.

I have to confess I have spotted a couple of errors that still crept through the net.
I should probably reimburse you for the pints bought by way of fee.
