DOUG'S BOOKS, OCTOBER 2010,Holiday Reading and Gifts

Photo of Doug Nicholson Good Day Readers and Gifters !

No it is not to early to start thinking ahead to both annual holidays and the Christmas gifting period and what to read and what book to give family and friends for Christmas.

Whilst my catalogue remains chiefly Africana there is rapid growth of popular fiction, both from the reading and collecting aspect.
Suggestions for holiday reading:

a)books on travel, either for Southern Africa or for overseas
b) going to the game reserves ?,read all about them and their flora and fauna

c) going bird watching(twitching) ? lovely books, illustrated and classified for easy location and recognition

Read all about them on www.dougfindsbooks.com and tell your friends.
Advice on any books gladly given, just 'e' me on colnic@telkomsa.net
Difficult books to find ? also give me details-free service.

On the fiction side I specialize in hardcover books and mainly first editions.
For example I have just added the following popular authors to my catalogue :-
Jonathan Kellerman ("Alex Delaware" Series)

Clive Cussler(He of "Raise the Titanic" and other such adventures)

Lee Childs(Jack Reacher)

Bryce Courtney

Bernard Cornwell (Richard Sharpe Series and a range of excellent historical novels)

and many others such as Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs,
and my current personal favourites, Andrea Camillieri (Sicilian detective), and Donna Leone ( Venice detective) for easy reading.!

Currently I am working on supplying a customers with a complete set of Hammond Innes stories and J K Rowling's Harry Potter series and from my Africana, Lawrence Green and T V Bulpin. Previously I have supplied sets of Alaister Maclean, Lawrence Green, Frederick Forsyth, Martin Cruz Smith, which can still be repeated.

As a matter of interest, from a very recent purchase, I am able to offer an interesting collection of Royal Air Force literature relating to World War 2 and a group of books on Everest and other mountaineering exploits. Let me know if you are interested and I will send you details.

I am often asked which are my most popular single Africana books and not much has changed and the following remain the firm favourites :

Jock of the Bushveld(Percy Fitzpatrick)

The Great Trek/Die Groot Trek(T V Bulpin)

Karoo(Lawrence Green)

Commando(Denys Reitz)

Vlug in die Namib/The Sheltering Desert(Henno
Martin)
The Ivory Hunter(Bulpin)

Valley of Gold(A P Cartwright)

The Plains of Camdeboo(Eve Palmer)

I cannot promise to supply every one ! but bear them in mind
