I'm always interested in any new really really good books. I haven't really come across any recently. Do any of you know of any?
I also read that this month a book called Nixon and Mao was going to be released, but I don't know much about it. I also heard that The Bounty Hunter will be released soon.

They are very selective who they invite... You have to be the young upwardly mobile type. Needless to say I'm a member.

If membership is low the owners accept new members... but this is very rare. More often than not invites are obtained from present members who sometimes are issued with them. The number issue depends on your upload/download ratio (they don't like people downloading a file then immediately disconecting).
I used mine up a month or so ago.
If you tell me your interests I'll have a search for you.

I doubt its Val Doonican's biography Zola's after Phil so I don't expect you're going to help much.

Getting back to the original question I would highly recommend the Kite Runner (it made me cry), Life of Pi and the His Dark Materials trilogy.

I would like to reccomend a book by Ed Hussain, called "The Islamist". I just have a few chapters left to read. its absorbing stuff and a real eye opener. Won't say anything more about it, because that would spoil it. Except that this country and europe need to open our eyes. Wer'e too damn soft.

After finishing 'Bravemouth' by Pamela Connoll,biography about her husband Billy(Very enjoyable and very funny) I'm now re-reading a biography about Dirk Bogarde by John Coldstream,which was written after his death.Great read.I wrote to Dirk when he was ill in London and was surprised to get a hand written reply.More followed,and will treasure them forever.I fell in love with Dirk when i was about 7,can't remember the film in question...But he will always have a corner of my heart.
