DOUG'S BOOKS FEBUARY 2017, A BETTER YEAR ? WHAT'S NEW IN BOOKS.....

Photo of Doug Nicholson A VERY GOOD DAY TO YOU ALL, BOOK FRIENDS, OLD AND NEW !

Let us put the world of Brexit and Trump aside and concentrate on books and all that they offer us. The pleasure of reading, of collecting, and of course of gifting ! After all books have seen off the competition from radio, television, movies and now Kindle.More books are written, published and read than ever before ! and now we have this modern miracle of the internet , which allows us a great vehicle to present you with an array of books on any conceivable subject.(See www.dougfindsbooks.com) We in the second hand book business offer a service in which we locate and supply you with these books at a reasonable cost. It is a pleasure that I personally enjoy !
Below I have listed a selection of the books I shall be adding to my web site in Febuary, including some of those I located on my recent trip to the UK. A visit I aim to repeat in 2017,albeit for a different reason. I am open to requests for books possibly not to be found in SA. Let me know if I can assist.
The books listed are available now and can be secured by an e mail to me ,as usual to colnic@telkomsa.net
