A collection of true crime short stories by Ann Rule; she's an excellent writer who really knows the genre.
'Adobe CS5 for Photographers' by Martin Evening.................... and I'm completely baffled by most of it!
Another topic entitled "What book are you reading"
rossd, go to 123di.com and have a look. I have trouble learning from books, but I've been using 123di for 7 years now, and keeping up with updates; it shows you how it all works in animated ebook form.
Can anyone recommend a good book about the D-Day landings. I know so little about it and there is such a lot of literature I don't know where to start.
'Overlord' by Max Hastings is very well reviewed (in fact anything about military campaigns written by him seem to get good write ups).
Here is another page full - there are also several that concentrate on commentary from the soldiers' point of view rather than the background and strategy.
Nothing too heavy. I like strategy and background mixed with reminiscences. Thanks for the ,ax Hastings tip. I've always liked his writing.
I should add that until the late 70s, many books looked at the invasions with almost a sense of wonder at the planning, strategy and audacity of it all. Then in the 80s and 90s the revisionists came in (including Hastings) to put a more balanced story and some, in doing so, may have gone a tad too far (for some) in pointing out the proficiencies of the Germans and the deficiencies in the Allied planning. But, being a journalist by training, I think Hastings does a decent job in writing for a more generalist reader even though he may frustrate the more specialist, knowledgeable military buff.
Hastings on order. Thanks.
I've just sat up most of the night finishing off Stephen King's book 11.22.63.
Absolutely unputdownable. It's a thick book but a great story.
I though King's book The Green Mile was so moving, but he's matched that and more with 11.22.63.
That's good, by coincidence a friend has just given me the hardback of the Stephen King book. I shall look forward to reading it.
His book of short stories, 'Different Seasons' is well worth looking out for, it has the original story that 'Shawshank' was adapted from in it.
Thanks for the tip Richard.
I found it hard enough to hold the paperback version; can't imagine how you're going to manoevre a hardback. A lecturn might come in handy.
I might be old but I am still capable of holding a book! :
