Just found out that the Author Reginald Hill died last Friday so no more will we be able to read about Dalziel & Pascoe his most well known Characters. The last Novel in the Series was Midnight Fugue his 24th Novel on the Pair.
R.I.P dear Reginald you will be greatly missed
Just wanted to share this if you buy Books from the Book Depository online there are about 3 different sites the .com site , the .co.uk site and the site they run through abebooks.com which is run out of Guernsey UK and which is about $10 - $6 Dollars cheaper than the other two much to my delight and still has free delivery so if you are a Bookaholic like myself you can save quite a few Dollars.
I’ve just come across a Website called Unbound where we the Public can help Writers get Books promoted & Printed and get yourself a mention even, Stephen Fry and Terry Jones of Python Fame are using the site.
The hardest part is picking which Book to help promote I chose Banks’s Game An epic novel about an Elizabethan horse-whisperer and adventurer by Rupert Isaacson. I think I may even use this site for some Special Christmas Presents for the Bibliophiles in the Family http://unbound.co.uk/books/banks-s-game/promote?promoter_id=8041
I love used Book Stores and coming across some old treasures that are out of Print, I love the fact that I have in my hand a piece of History that someone maybe 100, 70, 50 Years ago sat down and took the time to write I think of the processes the Book went through to make it here I wonder about the Printing and the people who owned it in the past I think about the Day it was bought and why they bought it. I love walking into my Study/Library and seeing the Books of my Childhood and Teens bought new and from Libraries and used Book Stores some even making the Passage from England to Australia it is here that I feel most at home amongst my Treasures and my History.
