I saw the programme that was on with Quinten in New York...I didn't enjoy that so much as the Naked Civil Servant...British humour for sure......John Hurt was amazing in that too!

Did anyone read "Cloud Atlas"? I read it a couple of years ago and loved it. I just saw the film adaptation which was actually quite good with some really entertaining performances. There is a bit of something for everyone in the book - from period drama in the southern seas right through to a bit of science fiction. The film changed the order of things and seemed to spend more time in the futuristic parts, but I still enjoyed it.

I tried to read that one Bear but I couldn,t get into it, kept falling asleep so I gave up on it. Just read Michael pollan. An omnivore,s dilemma. The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Search for a Perfect Meal in a Fast-Food World (reissued) and Jay raynerA Greedy Man in a Hungry World: How (almost) everything you thought you knew about food is wrong. I like these kind of books. Trouble is, if I read any more horror stories about our food supply I,ll stop eating altogether.xxx

Hi CD - I'm one of those sad people who loves a bit of escapism in my literature. I do read non-fiction and lots of reference books, but for pure pleasure give me something with a touch of the fantastic.

I like autobiography and journals and collections of letters. I'm a great fan of I-was-there books. "The reader would not believe that such things could be, but I was there and I saw it." Izaak Walton writes that somewhere. Either that, or I'm just nosy! LOL
But I read a lot of other stuff too. Bear, on Gutenberg they are putting out some of Ray Bradbury's old short stories from vintage scifi magazines, you might like to see them.

Thanks for the tip Ori - I will check it out. The only Ray Bradbury book I have read was Fahrenheit 451 so I could do with getting a few more under my belt.

Not sad at all Bear, I like all sorts of books, science fiction, detective, witchcraft and magic, pratchett, king, willbur smith. What I,m not fond of is the stuff they call chick lit. I prefer something I can get my teeth into. I like bill Bryson although I,m not a big reader of travel books. I also enjoy the back of a cornflakes box when all else fails.xxx

Try....Executioner Pierrepoint: An Autobiography Not a easy subject but certainly makes you think about the whole "Capital Punishment" thing. Last British Hangman.

I,ve put itin my ever expanding wish list for now, oh Pixie, so many books, so little time and even less money, but I can always find enough for my books, funny that!!. What is the hosting book like from Felicity Cloake, I saw that in TK too but didn,t have much time to look at it and then it had gone when I bought Arabesque yesterday.xxx

Look in TK Diamond....I tried the Crumpet recipe which she says she searched for a long time...I have to say they are the best! Light as a feather and cook in an instant! I was chatting to someone on here about crumpets and wether the bicarb goes in first or after the bibbly bit....I'd read some where that it's after and that's how she does it!...I tried the Hollywood ones and the Hairy Bikers...no contest!
She has a recipe for our English muffins too so may have a go at them too.
Keep the books you like on the wish list and they will suddenly pop up dirt cheap...you got to be quick though....and we are!xx
