Are you saying you don't know the title of the book?

Hhhmmm at last an interesting question - start, one is tempted to say, with where you last saw it?

Guy goes into a book-shop and asked the manager - 'could you tell me where the self-help section is please ?'
To which the manager replied - 'I could.
But wouldn't that be defeating the purpose'

Dear Mu Lane, if you suggest a title I will try my very hardest to find it. Thank you very much.

Good luck. I also want to find a book. I found one when I moved into a house once, hidden under the carpet in the spare room. It was very glossy but it wasn't nice, so now I want to find another one. So, Mr Jackson, don't look under the carpet.

I thought I was on the music forum for a second as this was so bizarre................

If you want a book - read "Garcia - An American Life" by Blair Jackson; without a doubt the best biography of the great man.

I want a different book to that one if I find one

Try ""
- or I can recommend - "Grateful Dead Gear" by Blair Jackson - very interesting if you're in to the technical stuff.

Cornish-is the second recommendation different to the first, what if I find them both, togethor, this could be terribly confusing

SRJ - you're teasing me now!

There's always: Grateful Dead - The Music Never Stopped by Blair Jackson ( yes it is a different book)
Difficult (possibly) to get hold of as it came out in '83

(NB: I'll have to change authors, but there's a load more)

Depends on what you mean by book. And where you can be bothered to look.

If you want non books - i.e. books for people who do not read books - that's easy. Check out a couple of Listmania contributions, choose the title most often repeated on the lists then toddle to local Quickiemart, purchase non-book, then return home - conceptual or actual - for a totally unsatisfying non-read.

Real books are harder to may be better off going back to where you started

S.R.J says:
Back where I started, that would make this a circuitous search, forever returning to my starting point, no, I cant condone that at all

Ah what the hell. Look under the carpet. If you don't find anything, take the floorboards up - you're sure to find something to read down there. If you still don't find a book... do you have a spade?

Ah, THAT Peter Clarke-nope, we are keeping him , and whats more he will be scoring a hatful-we will of course be champions this season, As I have said every season for the past 42 years!!

David Buwe says:
They sell book detectors on ebay, but everything I've dug up with my one is riddled with bookworm (ouch!)
42 years? Does that mean you're yearning for the glory days of Herbert Chapman and the 1920s?

S.R.J says:
Whites DFX Metal Detector Books. ***Take a Look*** -this is not a BOOK detector at all, you were telling me fibs after getting my hopes up, make no wonder Clarky left your team, I shall have to start all over again now

Collette says:

Is Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys as rude as it sounds Collette, or is that another one?
