    not into dry historical textbooks really.
    I'd like to read "The Amber Chronicles" again but they are currently not reachable in any sensible way other than by buying them again.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

            Thanks for the offer but I'm a dead trees kind of

            The Uri Geller book is quite an easy read compared with a lot of my fare.

              Keep you going for a while.
              I'm taking a two book break between each one.
              I need to sort out the right order to read them all in.

                  from google:

                  Publication Order
                  That said, publication order probably makes the most sense, due to the (very) minor and occasional reference in one book to the events of another. This is the order the books were published in:

                  Consider Phlebas (1987)
                  The Player of Games (1988)
                  Use of Weapons (1990)
                  The State of the Art (1991)
                  Excession (1996)
                  Inversions (1998)
                  Look to Windward (2000)
                  Matter (2008)
                  Surface Detail (2010)
                  The Hydrogen Sonata (2012)

                    And don't forget Raw Spirit which makes a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon read

                    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
