Had the 'joy' of a few days in London last week. I particularly like the view of the Shard. I think more pictures would benefit from superimposing an incongruous skyscraper

Books and the History they hold
I love second hand books. This is not the Yorkshireman in me being particular fond of a bargain – of course I am, but that’s not the real
reason. I love to think about the history of the book – how it’s been loved and
cherished and the various hands it migh...

I'm terrible at keeping up to date ... thx to those folk who wished me happy birthday on Friday -  i spent 6 hours of it on a training programme and 6 hours driving - deep joy! I managed to squeeze a beer in when I eventually got home though!

May I ask what kind of bike you are riding in your picture. Can you help me to determin if I need a all out mountain bike or A hybrid? I ride mostly on roads and sidewalks. But these dangerous bumpy Michigan areas forced me to get a mountain bike. But I want a light bike to get some speed out of it. Are you able to suggest somethi.g?

I know many people who would want this Yoda soft toy. Does it make me a bad person to include it when it has nothing to do with the post?
 
More books delivered and an ex England Manager gets a mention

Minor reflections on the works of Enid Blyton
I don't seem to get the time these days to read as much as I'd like, but I've been an avid book reader for as long as I can remember. I don't really know where I got the love of reading from as I don't recall being read to th...

Just the one ...more than enough! I am building a 'library' of potential future reading for him. but I think it's as much about the discovery when you're young so if he doesn't want to read any of them, so be it.

The project is back underway
 
Books By Bike reborn
What seemed like a good idea in the depths of last winter quickly turned, well not sour, but not exactly all sweetness and light. I was under a 'hernia' cloud for the first few months of the year as my op kept getting postponed for a variety of reasons and ...

One month of giving books away by bike deserved a summary I think

I enjoyed this ride -  a bit of a mudfest but nice all the same
 
Another book delivered, another 20 miles cycled and a big clean up operation for the bike

Found a box of kids books I've started adding - kept some of them for the little one...
 
Just added a whole bunch more books, Freecycle seems like a good idea to get me started. Have a couple more lined up for delivery through that avenue - hoping to do them together tomorrow

You need to be in the UK and within 25 miles of Altrincham, Cheshire but free books could be yours - no catch, I'll be donating my own money to a charity fund for every book I dispatch by bike
 
Still busy adding books - just added some Star Wars books - remember within 25 miles of Altrincham and these could be yours for free.
