Worm composting recommendations (books/suppliers)

Happy New Year england.rec.Gardening folk !
I am looking for some recommendations for books on worm composting and a good UK supplier. So feel free to post your tips here.
I searched Google recently for some UK suppliers and came up with a couple of useful hits. Here's a summary (in no particular order) :
* http://www.wormshop.co.uk/ - 38.50 1 kilo Composting Worms with Bedding Block A Value Pack of 1000g composting worms (approx 1800-2000) and a coir bedding block to start a wormery or to give an ailing kit a boost. The worms are a mixture of species (mainly reds and dendras)
* http://www.organiccatalog.com/ 25.55 1000 compost worms, but they (HDRA) do not provide any detail on the type of worms supplied (unusual for an organisation which claims to be organic specialists)
* http://www.recycleworks.co.uk 22.99 Eisenia foetida - Rubellis terrestris 1000 worms
* http://www.wormsdirectuk.co.uk 18.00 0.5kg (approx. 2000 worms) "Special Composting Mix Worms... Eisenia foetida ... Dendrodrilus rubidus ..." etc.

It's not necessary to spend all that dosh to start a wormery btw...make your own from a 2nd hand large plastic barrel and find someone local to give you a scoop of starter worms.
