Books to Die For by John Connolly

After watching Mr Connolly's interview on BBC Breakfast, I had high expectations of this book. I am a fan of the classic crime fiction (Christie, Conan Doyle, Highsmith, Tey, etc,etc) and thought this book was the perfect read. I was not disappointed.

The book is full of fantastic essays. I must be honest and say I am not a fan of every single essay present in the book. I should say that there are 120 essays in this book and if your reaslistic, you expect a few that fall below the par.

Kindle Keyboard, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display by Kindle
I am 4th year history student and I can say with absolute confidence that this is proving to be a great aid in my work and my favourite piece of kit!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pain-free running., 14 Jun 2010
I am a runner and I also work in an outdoor store where Throlos are our top selling socks. These socks are fantastic for running or even for day to day wear. We had a representative from Thorlos come to our store; after he had gone through the technical benefits of the sock, I decided to give them a go.

Having fallen arches I found my feet became very painful during and after runs. If I was running for too long I found I would get blisters easily. Since using my Thorlos I have no such issues and I now use them every time I run. The socks are, as long as you wash them with fabric conditioner and properly dry between uses, blister-proof. The pads on the heel and ball of the foot… Read more
