  • A Tour de France download

    Mon, 18 Jul 2011 08:18

    The Tour de France is in full flow. The riders have just been in the Pyrenees with the Alps still to come before the grande finale up the Champs Elysees. Having just cycled 15 miles to work, I've no idea how these boys do it! But if it's a more leisurely tour of Paris you're after we have this great download from Lonely Planet giving lots of detailed trips and maps to take your time around this wonderful city. Happy cycling.

    And check out loads more Lonely Planet titles by clicking the banner below.

    And our great range of Tour books are here.

  • Our top ten cookbooks

    Mon, 18 Jul 2011 08:18

    As ever, one man's top ten foodie books is another's dogs dinner. But, Hopkinson proves there is a difference between writing recipes and presenting them on the telly. Bissell proves that you CAN cook with flowers. Henderson proves you can eat the WHOLE animal. And Ducasse proves that you can start a recipe with the line, 'First, reduce three bottles of red wine' and keep a straight face and charge 160 quid (a mahoosive discount with us though!) for the privilege.

  • Our top ten scifi titles

    Mon, 11 Jul 2011 07:05

    As you may imagine, the Book Depository basement office is chock full of computer geeks and nerds who are, unsurprisingly, quite interested in scifi and fantasy books. 23 out of the 24 hours in a day are spent hunch-backed over glowing screens or 3 inch thick fantasy books. What sunlight these Morlocks ever see is only and inevitably compared to the twin suns of Tatooine.

    But when asked, in a poll, for their favourite scifi books we got back a list of some pretty impressive titles. (See below) However, when asked for their top ten Fantasy books, a vicious fight broke out and they ended up fighting to the death with daggers and swords in proper Conan stylee. (Only, in an online world, of course)

    So, what's your favourite fantasy books? Real names not allowed, WoW only.

  • My top 10 nonfic

    Mon, 04 Jul 2011 08:17

    It's Discovery week here at our Summer festival. Here's my pick of a top ten. What's your discoveries?

    What is History because it tells you how to read history. You'll never read a history book in the same way again. The Braudel because it is one of the finest histories you'll read. The Freud because he was the most influential figure of the 20th century and fundamentally changed the way we see ourselves. The Marx biography because it's a brilliantly accessible introduction into his thinking without being weighed down by all the bogeyman nonsense. The Barthes because you'll never look at a toaster or a laptop or a tennis match or anything in the same way again. The Benjamin because it deals with what is authentic, in every respect. The Banham because for me, Los Angeles is the most complete city in the world. The Tufte because it is one of the most beautiful books ever produced as well as one of the most challenging in our visually literate age. The Riefenstahl because of the incongruity of reading one of the most extraordinary lives of the 20th century in all its glory and horror whilst on a palm fringed beach in the South Pacific. The Hopkins because it reminds be of being 16 again. But mostly, because all of these discoveries opened so many doors for me that I am forever in their debt.
