    Hi All,

    One chapter into The Little Book Of The Spitfire by David Curnock.

    Little Book of the Spitfire is a 128-page hardback book fully illustrated with photographs written by David Curnock. In the history of the aeroplane there is one aircraft that is fully deserving of the accolade "legendary" - the Supermarine Spitfire. Against overwhelming odds in the Battle of Britain, and taking part in major actions in every operational theatre in World War 2, the Spitfire became a symbol of victory. Built in greater numbers than any other aircraft of the time, examples of this icon of British aviation achievement are still flying today, paying tribute to her designer and makers, and in honour of those who flew and maintained her in those dark days.

        I'm reading English Pastoral - An Inheritance by James Rebanks
        "It's the story of an inheritance: one that affects us all and tells of how rural landscapes around the world were brought close to collapse, and the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things were lost".

        Really enjoying the book and it's relevance to the way we grow our own veg.

          Hi All,
          I'll be starting this third book I was given in this particular series The Little Book Of Fishing by Rob Yorke.

          A unique and fascinating A to Z of Fishing written by Rob Yorke, this book is a must for all fishing enthusiasts. Packed full with interesting entries and hints and tips, it is fully illustrated with colour photographs which will inspire any angler. A perfect stocking filler, which it was many moons ago from our daughter.

            Hi All,
            One chapter into The Fog by James Herbert 1975, I watched the film made by John Carpenter many moons ago if I am correct in thinking that was set on the US East coast ? Anyway the next-door neighbour read it while on holiday last week so he thought I may like it so here I am giving it a go.

            A peaceful village in Wiltshire is shattered by a disaster which strikes without reason or explanation, leaving behind a trail of misery and horror. A yawning, bottomless crack spreads through the earth, out of which creeps a fog that resembles no other. Whatever it is, it must be controlled.

              Hi All,
              Just started Open Skies by Nick Pope, not only does he right about what for many despite rather compelling evidence think is in peoples minds he also rights fiction using his acquired knowledge that comes in as a useful tool when creating these works. But back to this book he applies the same exacting standards he used while investigating this phenomena while in service.

              Open Skies, Closed Minds, a book on ufology, expresses the views of Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator with the British Ministry of Defence. The book provides an overview of the UFO phenomenon, with the emphasis on Pope's three-year tour of duty as the Ministry of Defence's UFO desk office (Courtesy of Wiki.)
