  1. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

    I think perhaps I may go to the cinema in a few weeks and see what they've made of it. The book was impossible to put down, the seven-hour BBC adaptation was TV in a class of its own, I even enjoyed Simon Russell Beale when Radio 4 dramatised all eight George Smiley novels. This film has a lot...

  2. "Hybrids" is a great read with a surpize ending

    I love reading thriller/page turners/sci-fi and “Hybrids” by Whitley Strieber fits that bill and then some. I had never read anything by Streiber before even though he is very well known in the “aliens” genre. Streiber wrote “The Grays” which is a classic in the genre. Others know him as the author...

  3. E-readers

    Does anyone have one? What do you think of them? I haven't actually seen one, though I know people who have them. I don't believe I would be interested, I'm really a book person. It's not just the subject matter, (though that is an important part!), I have bought books just because I liked the...

  5. This one's for Jean Auel fans....

    I just received an email today from the "Jean Auel Fan Club." Finally, her 6th book will be published next March. I am thrilled beyond words, although so very sad that the series is ending:-1 Years ago, I was so excited to hear that Auel's 5th book was published that I ran to the book store and...

  6. The Shakespeare Question

    Were the plays of the great bard written by William Shakespeare of Stratford? I'm watching a documentary with my kid, because she has to watch one and this is the only one I've talked her into watching... but I'm still waiting for her to join me in front of the screen, and almost a day has...

  7. All things change.

    I think I'm putting this up here because I think it's one of the most telling paintings from WWII. It's sad, it's even terrifying. But it's real. I remember in my younger days I had a much more macho attitude towards war, it was kind of like an interesting game to be played, entertainment. I don't...

  8. Hermann Hesse - Steppenwolf

    Most people know Siddhartha and Steppenwolf. My favourite Hesse novel is The Glass Bead Game. Narcissus and Goldmund should be mentioned as outstanding as well. Hesse isn't a cheerful chap. He has a certain disdain for authority, especially those that have authority over youths. He may not be...

  9. Biographies

    Do you read many of them? What makes a biography good? I tend to only read biographies of people I've already come to like and want to know more about or understand better. A well told story can overcome whether or not I like the person's work. I don't like boxing but I respect it more because...

  10. AJ Jacobs

    Really funny guy. I first saw his book "The Know-It-All" on a bookshelf and thought I'd better find out who my competition is :wah: He's written a number of books. I've just finished "My Life As An Experiment" and am working on "My Year Of Living Biblically" all of them are worth the price of...

  11. Nixon

    Just finished the new Nixon/Kissinger book by Robert Dallek. It was great, what a pair these two were. I know hindsight is always 20/20 but how did they ever survive so long?

  14. May I have an opinion on this poem please?

    it's not mine and apparently it has nothing to do with "running" I Run I Run. And I Run Some More. Across The Fields Where Trouble Is No More. I'll Live In Peace Away From Here.

  17. Smile Why You Should Read More Books

    How many books do you read each year? I read about ten on average. If you are one of the non-book readers who feels you “don’t need no stinking books”, here are 26 great reasons to start the habit…before you are left behind! 1. Reading is an active mental process - Unlike TV, books make...

  18. Hitchhiker's Guide

    I'm a slug. I'm never going to get this book read unless I'm forced, so let's get this book club started. I'm sure others have read the book recently? I read it years ago, and I'm finding it almost new. I love the way Adams uses word twists and such in his humor.
