i use my tablet to read on as i can switch to my phone and carry on from where i left off.

it`s full of Pratchett and other such and a few factual war (and falklands war) tomes.

I have all the Pratchett in paperback, the same again in hardback, and one full set of collectors hardback, all of the trilogys and the graphic novels. but its much easier on a tablet.

my wonderful daughter is currently treating me to the full set of Discworld Collector’s Library collection and i dont even read these, they are put away safe.

library collection

Although I use a kindle,I'm on my third I kept dropping it falling asleep at night I do like real books.But they are normally bought as birthday or Xmas presents.Guy Martin is quite entertaining he writes like he speaks,Geraint Thomas explaining how he won the Tour de France and the pressure of 3 weeks cycling.My latest is Billy Connolly someone that I find funny, he doesn't appeal to all his language was very ripe but the stories he tells.
When Jeffrey Archer was banged up I vowed to never read another of his books,and then came the prison diaries,and then the Clifton Trilogy which I believe was 5 books all very easy reads and he has an enormous back catalogue still to search. Bring on the summer.

gedsjeep, I bow to your dedication to all things Pratchett! My collection consists of well-thumbed paperbacks and a few similarly well-used hardbacks. Years ago I was lucky enough to see an exhibition of the original Josh Kirby paintings used for the book covers - massive canvases about 8'x6' - very phantasmagorical (and frankly rather gloriously ugly)seen at such a scale.

i have a very indulgent family with an account at the discworld emporium

i love Josh Kirby (plus he was a scouser) and have a few of his prints. paul kidby really stepped into the role and excelled too.

i even have some of the old clarecraft ornaments that are starting to appreciate.

my biggest regret was passing up on a great a'tuin table from clarecraft. was £200 in `93 and worth a fortune now.

I love fantasy and sci-fi to take me away from my day job. A favourite is David Eddings - he's written a lot of long running saga type novels. Anne McCaffrey writes about super beings in the future and dragons.

My favourite books to listen to on long journeys are the Stephen Fry narrated Harry Potter novels. They kept our children occupied through Spain and Portugal when we took the trailer tent !
