SHOPPERS HAVE BEEN warned not to wait until December to buy their Christmas reads amid a “perfect storm” of problems impacting supplies within the industry.

Several supply chain issues have affected businesses around the world this year, with shortages of freight containers and booming global consumer demand already impacting on supplies of certain products.

But booksellers are now reporting that Brexit-related shortages of warehouse staff and delivery drivers in the UK, where the vast majority of Irish-sold books come from, are leading to unpredictable delivery times for many titles.

So, today we want to know… Will you start your Christmas shopping early this year?


Poll Results:

Yes, I've already started (4977)
No, I'll wait until December  (4188)
Yes, I'll start soon (3339)
I'm not sure / no opinion (1137)
