As we enter 2013, may all visitors to the website have a happy, contented and prosperous New Year! Mark Chirnside’s Reception Room had a successful 2012, with substantially more page loads, unique visits and returning visitors than in any previous year. Thanks again to everybody who has visited and supported the site.
The Reception Room has now got a new, consolidated Bookshop, where signed copies of all available books can be purchased from a single page, rather than having to look at each book page individually.
Several new articles are expected to be added over the coming year. In the meantime, another letter has been added to the file of letters to the editor. It was sent to The Times in response to an article regarding Titanic’s lifeboats which appeared in November 2012.
Updates from 2012 were archived: News/Updates 2012.
