I have several books I read them all on a sort of rota system. I am a sucker for books on veggie gardening. If I had to pick a favourite it would be the Haynes manual and I believe it would be the most usefull to new persons starting out. I also am very fond of Carol Klein, her enthusiasm comes though.

Not a book, but I love Harry Dodsons 'The Victorian Kitchen Garden' on DVD. I watch it over and over again at this time of the year to cheer me up

Reading material for the garden for me is Successful Organic Gardening by Geoff Hamilton.

Night time reading, Lee Childs, Jack Higgins, Stieg Larsson, Dick Francis, Jo Nesbo, Andy McNabb and Gervase Phinn to name a few.

Thumbs up A beautiful book...

I JUST finished reading this - and I really wish it wasn't over. A far more interesting and absorbing ride than I would have first thought. Recommended!

I've just finished reading James McBride's The Color of Water A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother and I still can't get over how much this book touched me. This book is one incredibly moving memoir. Throughout the whole story, I found myself falling in love with the characters. It is a great read. I have been enlightened and would like to recommend.

What a lovely review, Sharon. I must read that book.

Too much bigotry and prejudice in society. We need to learn to 'see' a person's heart & soul...

On your recommendation, I ordered the box-set. Just watched the first two episodes and it is wonderful. Calming, nostalgic but not sentimental, beautiful to watch and informative. Never would have come across this if it weren't for your post. Thank you.
