New website: free books for feedback

Please visit our new website to try its features and view our two new titles: see below for discount. We think it's a major stride forward, but also have plans for further features, including route maps and altitude profiles. We are offering prizes for the three most helpful feedback emails.

"Most helpful" could include spotting any problems that have slipped past our tests and trials, suggesting new features that aren't too difficult to implement, or advising on making it even easier to use or better to navigate. (Please don't suggest adding route maps and altitude profiles (they are already on our wishlist). And if you think the yellow dots on our world map should be clickable, please tell us exactly what should happen when you click the one over the British Isles!

The prizes are up to three free books of your choice from our website. Some of you will kindly email anyway, because you are loyal customers who have been with us for nearly ten years, others may email in the hope of free books. That's fine, we just want feedback any way we can get it. Thanks!

Walk finder and new routes

Inline

Please try our new "Walk finder". Just enter the minimum and maximum days you have available, and it will suggest walks to fit the slot. Please tell us if it's useful and how it could be improved. At present it features only walks on which we have guidebooks, but we always welcome your suggestions for new routes to publish.

Our guidebooks to the Coast to Coast is now being printed, as is our St Cuthbert's Way. Both are available to pre-order now. For each book, view its gallery of images, look at sample pages, and, if you like what you see, pre-order. Your discount code saves £1.50 and is  RRnewsletter31 - reducing the price to £11 (Coast to Coast) or £9.49 (St Cuthbert's Way) inc p&p in UK. No payment is taken until the book ships (February) and it will reach you long before it hits the bookshops.

There are supposed to be two kinds of walkers – those who have done the Coast to Coast and those who are planning to: which kind are you? Can you resist the barefoot finale of St Cuthbert's Way, the only long-distance walk in Britain with an underwater section? This is the ideal walk for first-timers, but there's also a high-level option over the Cheviot (815m/2674ft) for those who prefer a challenge!
