2011: Our Prime

We start this year with the launch of our new website, swb.co.in!

Its a new beginning with a new design, a new architecture*, and a new look and feel. The website is geared to do many of the things we have been wanting to do for a while- to integrate our blog posts, newsletters, to manage accounts more efficiently, to carry different kinds of educational material, to bring more publishers into SwB.... to go mobile... the list goes on. The old site will stay for a little bit longer, but soon we will migrate
entirely: there are still a few glitches, so please bear with us while we make the transition.

We've tried to make things simpler, so all shipping within India is free (by Registered Book Post) and for international orders there is a flat rate. Courier charges are extra, of course.

So here's wishing all of you a very Happy New Year! We look forward to hearing from you as to how we can improve things- what you would like to see us carry (or drop!) and how we can be better... Thanks. Write to us at hello@swb.co.in.

And yes, 2011 is a prime number. For more properties of this wonderful number- or of any number- there is the great website of the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences.
