Diamond thanks for the nice message...Im not a member of a book club..Ive just started reading (last 6 months)..Apart from the Keen Eddie tv programme i havent done any other Extra work(im the busy postman)..Lately I have been very confused...I think Im Naive because I would love for every country to be at Peace..Surely everybody wants to be happy...I do realise its not as simple as that...Everybody agrees that we must get rid of Saddam Hussein....but how can it be done without any Forces going over there....Peace and Love....David..

Anything by Garrison Keillor. It's fictionalized non-fiction. Lake Wobegon days is a good start....
If you enjoy Palin and Bryson, you will love this guy.
Enjoy!

Oh where do I start David!?!

I've already recommended Douglas Adams' "A Last Chance to See", haven't I?

I've just borrowed a lovely book called "No Place for a Lady: Tales of Adventurous Women Travellers" by Barbara Hodgson which looks good so far (I've only browsed yet).

The next one I can't wait to get my hands on is David Attenborough's biography "Life on Air".

Keep reading!

Oooh....I have to suggest one of my favorites.....'With Nails' by Richard E. Grant. Non-fiction....auto-biography of an actors early struggles and how one small role in a cult film lead him to work with some of the greatest directors of modern cinama. It makes for fabulous light reading. Loved it! (the fact that I have a small obsession with him has NOTHING to do with it....ya hear that? NOTHING!!!!)
Enjoy!

Hey there!

Trixi that is a great book - and yes, the fact that Richard E Grant is one rather attractive man has nothing to do with it!

While we are on biographies - Bob Geldof's "Is That It?" is one of my favourites. It's a bit old now, badly needs updating, but it's still a very enjoyable read. Particularly for someone like me who was glued to my television in my teenage years for the entirety of Live Aid.

Cheers
Kath
