DOUG'S BOOKS, NEWSLETTER & NEW BOOKS THIS MONTH

Photo of Doug Nicholson Good Day to you all !

Spring is here and the Springboks are still unbeaten in 2017 ! What more could I ask for ?
A very special welcome to the many new members of my web site "www.dougfindsbooks.com".Yes I did find quite a few previously unfindable book on my visit to many parts of the UK ! Those of you who made special requests to me will be contacted shortly, if I have not already done so.
As my list of 'additions' this month is long, I shall be brief. Whilst the book publishing business in the UK is thriving the absence, as in South Africa of 'second hand' bookshops was disappointing. However the numerous 'charity shops are a blessing and hardcover books were plentiful and reasonably up to date. In one main(high) street alone of a small town I found 7 different charity shops and no book shop !
An interesting and serious topic that is rarely out of the news is that of the "Holocaust" and not surprisingly I have had several requests for books on the subject. It would seem that a rise in the right wing "Nazi" style movements in Europe has prompted reminders how such movement pose a threat to our civilization that we have fought so hard to maintain. Enough said.
As always it is great to visit overseas but wonderful to be back !

To my new friends please use my web site www.dougfindsbooks.com It is a library in it's self.Also my Free Book Finding Service is readily available.

I am always contactable and the e mail is often the easiest way.colnic@telkomsa.net

Have a splendid month of September !
