I’m always on the lookout for new authors and I think I just found one!
Stephen Booth – he’s written a crime series ( l love crime series!) on Cooper & Fry and I’m going to see if I can find one of them at Borders today (or Page One).
We have only 3 good book stores here. The other is Kinocurpia (or something like that it’s Japanesey).
Black Dog is the first one so I hope I can find it.
Has anyone here read this author?July 3, 2007 at 15:23 #105898PrufrockParticipant

Unusually gor me, I’m not reading anything at the minute .. I read two Philip K Dick books early on the in year but I can’t get the enthusiasm raised to start another book.July 4, 2007 at 01:02 #105967
That looks very interesting Oh Vintage One – I don’t care what age books are written sometimes they are worth checking out –
I am now reading One Last Breathe – Stephen Booth – it was the only one I could find!July 4, 2007 at 07:19 #105982seabirdParticipant

The Firm – John Grisham
I’ve seen a couple of films based on his books but am now going through his back catalogue.July 6, 2007 at 03:23 #106316
Well One Last Breathe was ok, need to read the first one in the series I think to find out a bit more about the main characters.
I am now reading Ruling Passion by Reginald Hill Ã¢â‚¬â€œ his books are brilliant!July 6, 2007 at 09:39 #106331betlargeParticipant

I have to admit I’m reading "British History for Dummies" which is doing a good job of filling in the considerable blanks since my last History lesson in about 1980.
It’s actually quite entertaining and ideal if you can no longer determine your Pankhursts from your Palmerstons.

The only thing I took from History was that 1026 was the Battle Of Hastings and 1666 the Great Fire of London ………. other than that I am a blank….. possibly had something to do with our teacher Mr Cerwoski – wasn’t he a total waste of space!July 6, 2007 at 09:51 #106334graysonscolumnParticipant

Hihihihihi, I sympathise KT! Coming from Oldham, our history courses at secondary school were, with the blessing of the NEAB, by design heavily biased towards social and economic history, the Industrial Revolution and so on.
To this day I can still reel off all the salient dates and details about Turnpike Trusts, Charles "Turnip" Townsend, selective breeding, pig iron, Coalbrookedale, Runcorn, The Spinning Water Frame, Elias Whitney’s Cotton ‘Gin, Richard Trevithick, The Davy Lamp, etc…. but can I give you a run-through of all the kings and queens of England? Can I heckers!
(Good job, for pub quiz purposes, that Mrs Column can….)

Now there’s an idea GC – a pub quiz! I ‘ll go to one when I get back!July 6, 2007 at 15:06 #106365ChubsMember

1026 ? haha..I’ll be charitable and suggest that’s a typo, or else your teacher was even worse than you thought.July 6, 2007 at 15:23 #106370dave jayMember

Of course it was a typo, the 2 is right next to the 6 on these Asian keyboards ….
