great books

Over the last few years, I have been put onto some great books-  so this is maybe a repeat from some where else, but I do want to promote the following at least,  again maybe… anyway, I suppose if I did not have a kindle, I may not have got them, as the local sources are pretty poor for this sort of thing (Hint Hint local library & bookstores!!) This blogger usually has some great suggestions too.

Read on mCduffies!!
