Dear Subscriber

Welcome to our July newsletter 24. Here are three items:
1. July discount: our most generous ever
2. New edition Wicklow Way
3. Kilimanjaro update

If you have downloaded pictures in this email, you'll see yellow tabs above, with Scotland, Ireland and so forth: clicking them works exactly like the website: we hope you find this useful. Reminder: should you wish to unsubscribe for any reason: visit and enter your email address, then click Unsubscribe, or scroll down to click the Unsubscribe link at the foot of this email.

1. July discount: our most generous ever

For the rest of July, we are offering newsletter subscribers a generous 4 pounds sterling off each order with a minimum spend of 15 pounds, so that's up to 26% off. Remember that p&p is still free (in UK) or subsidised (outside UK).

To claim your discount, click the Buy tab above (or use our order form to make your selection. At step 2, enter the code newsletter24 (no spaces). GBP4 will then be subtracted from your payment. This offer is valid for the month of July when this newsletter went out. If you are reading an archive version after 31 July 2008, it won't work any more, sorry.

2. The Wicklow Way

Following a research trip in February, we have thoroughly revised our Wicklow Way guidebook and we started sending out our new edition this month. Although the Way hasn't changed much, the walk has become a better experience because more B&Bs have opened which are either on or very near the Way, so you don't have to rely so much on lifts or extra walking. We've highlighted some new walker-friendly options, as well as including many new photos and updates. And can you spot the subtle improvement in our front cover image? The first person to email us identifying the difference correctly wins a free copy: don't forget to include your postal address in case you win!

3. Kilimanjaro update

Last month I went back to Kili, with the goal of updating and refreshing my material for our guidebook. The long approach from the west (Lemosho) extends and improves the Machame route, and I enjoyed summiting for the 4th time. Afterwards in Arusha I met Giovanni Tombazzi, talented artist and cartographer of the popular "New Map of the Kilimanjaro National Park". As a result, his attractive large-scale map is now available direct from us at GBP4.95, see our Explore Mount Kilimanjaro page. This map makes a "perfect partner" for our guidebook, and we are pleased to source it direct from Tanzania.

With best wishes from the team at Rucksack Readers, and thanks for reading
