Thanks so much for putting the book up ! by kisch on 19 October 2007 1:59pm
 
Now I don't give a damn about anything. The book is up here and I can read it, and I do and I already got totally submerged in it. His writing is as always, superb, and Basil Pao's photography is as great as usual. You may now continue to bash the series as much as you like, they are BBC thing, but the book is here to prove that it was a great, great journey and to show us the authors own views without any filters. Thank you, Mr Palin - generous as always.
*reads on*

Yes, thank you, Mr. Palin, for putting the book up on this site! At least now your poor American cousins will be able to know what everybody else is talking about here. (I'm still e-mailing the Travel Channel to encourage them to show the series here asap.)

I haven't read any yet (waiting for the book) but I listened to him reading the introduction yesterday.

I agree it's always EXCEPTIONALLY generous when people are as unselfish as Michael about putting books online. I am old-fashioned & prefer to read from a 'real'book but I appreciate the generosity & think it's typical of him.

From The Series forum:
Subject: Librarians Love Michael!

God bless you, Michael Palin & the wonderful folks at palinstravels!

I can’t wait to start reading…

You are a librarian’s best friend – not only for providing your Most Excellent works free for those who are on The Wrong Side of the Digital (& Economic) Divide, but also for providing the book info – ISBN & imprint/copyright data – for cataloging purposes! 8-)
