Books of the Month


The Library: A World History

by James Campbell

Thames & Hudson, Hardback, 2013  £48  (new)


Taking the reader through the history of books and libraries this is a compelling read for every bookworm! From Medieval libraries where books were so precious and very large that they were chained to desks and if you want to read something else you had to move on. The British Library now has over 170 million items to which 3million are added every year. A far cry from original libraries of the clay tablet store houses and Buddhist sutra blocks. As printing progressed books became smaller and libraries became more elaborate until in the mid 18th century they become status symbols of the wealthy. Although many libraries have changed beyond all recognition and are now often referred to as 'Information Centres' they are still many in existence that are proper places for bookworms!

Orbit, Hardback, 2013  £18.00  (New)


 The author was inspired by the documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams, taking the reader back over 30,000 years during the last glacial period to live amongst the day to day struggles of a primitive tribe. It is very well researched and evokes very well how hard life really was. The action takes place when a young shaman's wife is kidnapped by a rival tribe. He goes off to rescue her and gets caught himself.  He now has to find a way to escape with his wife but to also find his way back to their tribe. Fascinating in an anthropologically way.

by Janette Jenkins

Chatto, Hardback, 2013 £12.99 (New)


Everyone needs a little bit of Noel Coward during the Christmas holidays as his extraordinary wit, no matter what you think of him has the ability to lighten any company of family or friends. Jenkins explores Coward's later years and his constant fight against old age and his battle to be witty to all those around him, even his servants so that his glittering past is not forgotten. Although in reality he is distancing himself from his A-list Hollywood friends and feels exhausted at parties with everyone's high expectations for the sparkling performances for which he is so famous.  Intriguing though the book is , it will always be the Coward with his signature cigarette in hand, silk cravat and smoking jacket striking a posing figure at his hilltop residence in Jamaica, Firefly, which is now a museum, that will be forever paramount in everybody's mind and not the decline in his latter years.
