The Book of English Place Names: How Our Towns and Villages Got Their Names
The Book of English Place Names: How Our Towns and Villages Got Their Names
by Caroline Taggart
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather generalised, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly disappointing in that I was expecting something more specific and detailed. There was little on the region where we live, and nothing we did not already know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extremely entertaining read of what could have been a dull subject. Light hearted and witty and crammed full of amusing facts.
Spopiled very slightly by proof reading errors, a couple of school boy howlers and the misspelling of geographical locations. The details regarding Eleanor Glanville conflict with those published elsewhere.


Leaving Home (A Lake Wobegon Novel)
Leaving Home (A Lake Wobegon Novel)
by Garrison Keillor
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaving Home by Garrison Keilor, 3 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an amusing book, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. It helps to have heard Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon series on radio as his deadpan drawl is very much a feature of his narrative. More a book to dip into than to read at a sitting as it is a series of short stories with no plot development: slices of life in a fictional mid west town. Not for those who like to get to grips with an unfolding story, but delightfully entertaining nevertheless.
