    Oops, sorry :embarassed: It's just that seeing their were books in the topic title I thought they should take centre stage :D Hope you didn't get creases in anything or destroy the Pot Noodles while checking them :unsure:

    Very wide ranging selection :thumbsup: I really like the sound of Peacemakers :yes: Not too sure about The Jungle though as a happy holiday read :taunt: Seriously, it's one of those books who's impact I greatly admire but I don't think I'd have the stomach to read, I'd be interested to know what you think of it.

    Chuck and Dave are nearly there now. I'm sure there must be a list you haven't written yet that is dreadfully crucial :unsure:

    The Jungle is one of those books that I've read many times as my crumpled copy will testify too. I don't know why it draws me, it's a truly horrendous picture it paints but I keeping reading it. It's obviously very well written. As important as a historical document as it is a piece of literature.

    It was a toss-up between that and Catch-22 but there wasn't enough room in the bag for Catch-22. :lol:

    May I suggest Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach? It was delightfully funny yet not disrespectful which is a really hard thing to do. It was a very good book. And our very own Ms. Rebecca informed me last night that she's written a book called Bonk which I must go to Barnes and Noble and get! :tongue:

    Enjoy the Crucible.

    Robyn got an A for her GCSE essay on it.

    Have the DVD if you 'get' the book!

    I just looked at both of these on Amazon and have placed them in my wish list. Hope to get them soon. I love books like these.
