PostSubject: Books and Authors or 'the three 'R's - 'Reading' and 'Reading Rubbish'   Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:32 pm

Having spent the morning wandering the Car Boot sale with Ken this morning on the lookout for replacement books(for the two I lent him which he hasn't yet read but seems to have 'mislaid') I realised how much total rubbish has been written in the last few years.
While there were not enormous stalls full of books around today, it was noticeable how hard it was to find the GOOD authors and how much rubbish there is that nobody wants.
It shouldn't have surprised me really since every time I go to the book shop some tallentless 'self styled celebrity', has a 'new book' out which everyone knows was written by an army of ghost writers since they have no idea how to string more than 3 words together - I digress(sorry just one of my pet hates).
Anyway books are no longer cheap so getting to read the best ones before you fork over so much cash is a great idea(its no good reading the critics online either since they have no idea what YOU like)
So.....I thought it would be a good idea to open one of the first 'General Interest Post' subjects on BOOKS AND AUTHORS.
If there is interest, which I hope there is, we can offer up our views on 'who' is worth reading and 'why' - but NO STORY ENDINGS PLEASE !!!
I shall start posting my recommended and favourites on the next post.
