Thanks nightswimmer, have a great one yourself.

Owe you (or rather your O/H) an apology for my rather sweeping statement about American accents. :oops:
Can't remember if I've posted an explanation but in any case it wasn't an intelligent post by me, lol.
Peace and respect :thumbsup:


Although written for ages nine years and over, we're sure there'll be … Although written for ages nine years and over, we're sure there'll be plenty of adults reaching for this exciting adventure that aims to allow children to discover the mysteries of physics, science and the universe. The gripping tale - interspersed with astronomical details that every reader will want to know - is illustrated throughout and, with the help of Stephen Hawking and his daughter, answers some of the biggest questions in the universe.

Would recommend this book, my 9 year old really enjoyed reading this.

New Europe - Michael Palin - £4 - thebookpeople.co.uk/web…ry_
Until the early 1990s, when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, travelling behind the iron curtain was never easy. In undertaking his new journey through Eastern Europe, breathing in its rich history, filming its exquisite sights and talking to its diverse peoples, Michael fills what has been a void in his own experience and that of very many of his own generation. As in all his series, Palin's New Europe takes the form of a journey through countries which have rich and complex cultures. Few have survived intact, as the ebb and flow of warring armies has continually changed the map of Europe. Starting in the mountains of Slovenia he travels down through Croatia and the former Yugoslavia to Albania before turning northwards to embrace Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, The Ukraine, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, the former East Germany, Poland, the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad (as Konigsberg originally home to the Teutonic Knights), Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, opening up a new and undiscovered world to millions of viewers and readers.

England, Our England - Alan Titchmarsh - £4 - thebookpeople.co.uk/web…ry_

Survivor - Sharon Osbourne - £4 - thebookpeople.co.uk/web…ry_

From the recent sad loss of her father, to her experiences as a judge on number 1 hit shows The X Factor and America's Got Talent, to the further jaw-dropping adventures and dramas in the Osbourne family, Sharon tells it like it really is - with wit, honesty and style. Set to be a huge bestseller, Survivor is as astonishing, big-hearted and fascinating as Mrs O herself...

Born Survivor - Bear Grylls - £5 - thebookpeople.co.uk/web…ry_
Bear Grylls is no stranger to extremes. During a three-year stint in the SAS he was involved in a horrific parachuting accident in Africa and broke his back in three places. Months of rehabilitation followed but, never losing sight of his childhood dream of climbing Everest, Bear went on to become the youngest Briton ever to reach the summit and survive. It was a close-run thing, however, as during the descent he was almost killed in a crevasse, his life saved only by his team-mate and a rope. In 2003, Bear completed another world-record-breaking expedition, leading his team through freezing spray and icebergs across the North Atlantic Ocean in a small inflatable boat. More drama followed as Bear, a karate black belt, set out to show the viewers of Channel 4 what it is really like to complete the gruelling basic training of the Foreign Legion. Now, in Stranded which accompanies a brand new eight-part series for Channel 4, the world's ultimate survivor shows us how to stay alive in the most unforgiving conditions on Earth. From crossing piranha-infested rivers and finding fresh food to building bush fires and fighting off grizzly bears - all manner of survival techniques from our most dangerous environments are covered. So, whether you find yourself stranded on a desert island in the Pacific, lost in the Lake District, or stuck in the snow on Greenland, once you've read this book, you too will be able to beat the elements and survive the wild.

And so she travels to Europe as a passenger on a tanker bound through the Panama Canal. But Panama is a country whose politics are as volatile as the local freedom fighters. When Hisako's ship is captured, it is not long before the atmosphere is as flammable as an oxy-acetylene torch, and the tension as sharp as the spike on her cello. Canal Dreams is a novel of deceptive simplicity and dark, original power: stark psychological insights mesh with vividly realised scenarios in an ominous projection of global realpolitik. The result is yet another major landmark in the quite remarkable career of an outstanding modern novelist
