A Beautiful Book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tommy's War: A First World War Diary 1913-1918 (Paperback)
Although I am a Kindle owner and use mine regularly, there is nothing quite like holding a beautiful book in your hands, flicking the edges of the pages and smelling the paper. This is such a book. It is a diary, one man's personal story with all that entail's - the ups, downs and trivia. I first became aware of the diaries when they were shown on BBC's Antiques Roadshow and, being a Scot, I took a particular interest. When I learned that this had been published, I added it to my wishlist and in the next few days I will embark on reading it in detail after little snippets here and there over the last week or so. I can hardly wait. I know I will not be disappointed. And I managed to buy a hardback copy at a ridiculously low price - and to a Scot that matters!!
