But now I can.
It is quite an event for so many items to be published at the same time and I hope there will be more to come in 2011. Conductive Education Press has plans for three titles and maybe other people/organisations will publish too. More publications are needed, more accurate information, and more clarification, so I hope there will be more very soon.
I cannot comment on the quality of these five – it is up to you to decide!
In no particular order they are:
Mallett, S. Let me tell you a story. Nurnberg: Conductor Nurnberg.
Susie Mallett has selected six of her blog postings describing her work with children and adolescents and put them into a small booklet of 50 pages.

This can be purchased directly from Susie at http://www.susie-mallet.org/ for 8.50 euros plus postage and packing and I do have a few copies to sell for Susie if you would like to contact me.

Lots more photos now upon the SAHK website for the 7th World Congress
It looks as though a good time was had by all!
This is only a quick posting as there is still a lot going on here at the World Congress. Unlike Andrew I have not been able to post every day as I do not have a laptop or notebook of my own.
Since I arrived I have met people who I only knew via the Internet or publications which has been wonderful. Of course no-one looks as I had imagined and they were probably surprised in the same way on meeting me.
In the process I have found out about three books that have just been published in English and one in Chinese. Full details about these will be posted when I get home at the weekend as I have the use of this notebook (courtesy of Susie Mallett) for a few minutes before going into the final part f the programme, the Plenary discussions on the essence of CE and the future for it in the 21st century ö no doubt Andrew will report on these later.
CEP is a publisher and not a bookseller with premises and a physical stall.
Single copies of the titles will be available to look at during the Congress and a leaflet to take away containing information about all titles. I believe there may be information about a book from the Peto Institute available in the same way, Susie Mallett is working on a pamphlet, and there may be others too.
Usually at conferences books are available to order, rather than purchase there and then. A catalogue or titles may be available to look at and a form provided to complete to obtain copies. Sometimes there are copies available to buy, but not often; for instance, if the congress is being held in the home country of the publisher it would be possible to take multiple copies to sell – perhaps SAHK will do this with their publications. No airline luggage restrictions for them!
