Eighteen Classic Albums

A couple of months ago, I wrote a post about a process I had developed for producing ebooks. While dabbling in a few projects (none of which are anywhere near being finished) I established that the process worked and I was able to produce ebooks in various different formats. But what I really needed was […]

How To Travel From London To Paris

Imagine that you want to travel from London to Paris. Ok, so that’s probably not too hard to imagine. But also imagine that you have absolutely no idea how to do that and neither does anyone that you know. In that situation you would probably go to Amazon and look for a book on the […]

Amazon Kindle

I’ve had my Kindle for about six weeks now and I love it. It’s lightweight enough that I take it pretty much everywhere with me and I always have plenty to read. The screen is great for reading books and the battery holds its charge for days – I’m currently only charging it about once […]

The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas

I’m usually a big fan of keeping christmas in December, but I’m quite happy to make exceptions for a good cause. And this is a really good cause. Remember, the Atheist Bus Campaign? Well the people behind that campaign haven’t stopped campaigning and their book The Atheist’s Guide to Christmas is published this week. Ariane […]

Books I Read in April 2008

A lot of books this month. But you might think that there was a bit of cheating going on. The Bible: The Biography – Karen ArmstrongThis is a book I’ve wanted to read ever since I saw it published in hardback last year. Actually, it wasn’t quite what I expected. I was expecting a lot […]

Books I Read in March 2008

Another month, another list of books read. I know how much you all love reading these lists. number9dream – David MitchellI started this at the end of February. And, surprisingly, found it all a bit of a struggle. I say “surprisingly” because I’ve loved the previous two David Mitchell books that I’ve read – Cloud […]

Arthur C Clarke

I’m convinced that if it wasn’t for Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein, then I wouldn’t read anywhere near as much as I do. It was through spending my childhood reading those authors (and others like them – but mostly those three) that I developed my love of reading. Oh, I admit that […]

Books I Read in February 2008

Fewer books this month. It’s a shorter month, of course, but really I got a bit bogged down in a couple of books. I’m still reading David Mitchell’s number9dream, but I’ll finish it in a couple of days so it will be included in next month’s list. Oh, and I read a few X-Men comic […]

Books I Read in January 2008

The first of a (hopefully) monthly series. I say “hopefully” because I’ve tried do to things like this before. It never works. Here are the books I read last month: Atonement – Ian McEwanI really don’t know why I’ve only just read it. I bought it when it was first published and even started reading […]
