I love that Eames chair. I hope one day I will be able to buy one!
Perhaps, as someone interested in Bob Dylan and his songs, you'd enjoy my first person nonfiction novel, in which you'd meet Saint Annie, in more detail than in his song. Reviewed often on LT, as well as amazon, etc. Here's the link:

Some people have gotten it from the Aussie bookseller fishpond.
Hello! It seems we share many books, so I am glad to be your LT "friend". I see you have "The Letters of Sylvia Beach". How do you like it? I found it rather a slow read; rather boring. I was so anxious to get it & normally keep any & all things related to the time, but I sold it on Amazon. Am I terrible?
I see you don't list "Writing the Lost Generation: Expatriate Autobiography and American Modernism" by Craig Monk. He is a fellow LT'er & I found the book a valuable addition to my lost generation books. He's an interesting guy, as well.
I positively love that you have several of my all-time favorites: "The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop", "A Pound of Paper" (another neat guy, John Baxter), "My Family and Other Animals", 84, Charing Cross Road, and the Lucia books, to name a few. The only one missing is "I Capture the Castle", possibly my all-time favorite. A fellow LT'er & I are slowly collecting as many editions of the latter as we can. She has a leg up on me as she works in a library & lives in Portland , Oregon, home of Powell's Books.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Cheers! Judie
Hi, I'd like a copy of your Folio Society spreadsheet if possible.


Robert Mee
The Internet is a small place. Also, bloody hell you have a good memory for people and faces :)
Thanks! Think there might still be a few United books I have that aren't catalogued yet. (as well as my treasured Folio Society collection and many more)
If it was in the Nest on the last day of 96/97, it was me. Pics from that day here:
Hi Rob - well I feel sorry for myself, living in exile in Hampshire, 200 miles from OT, but Australia... I was brought up a mile or two from the ground, so United were bred in the bone from the pre-Munich era, but visiting is a rare treat, two or three times a season, these days. But I do have a ticket for the second leg of the Milan CL tie. I'm impressed with the size of your FS collection. I think there's an overlap in interest in France, too - I've a house there for when it's warm enough for outdoor living.
Hi Rob, I'm living in the UK, Brownhills, which near Lichfield. I lived most early life in Cheshire and worked in Greater Manchester for 2 years,(early sixties) before moving to the West Midlands. I've only managed to get to Old Trafford once, at the Stretford Road end. An absolutely wonderful experience.
Met Ollie Gunnar Solskjaer shook his hand and thanked him for THAT goal. But now my United experience is through tv, and I subscribe to MUTV, Paddy Crerand commentating is riveting.
My interest in politics has been with me since the 60's, my interest in American politics has been present for a long time. I find Nixon fascinating.
Just spotted you have just read Tim Parks, an excellent book, I read it shortly after it was published.
I was born in Belfast (George Best)I have a book signed by him, my Grandfather was born in Cork ( Roy Keane ) I like the connected feeling somehow. I'm 67 and have been retired for 10 years and I'm running out of space to store my books, but of course I'm still buying.
best wishes
Hi Rob, thanks for your comment.United came first, Folio only in my later years when I had enough spare cash to start buying them. Re yesterday's Carling Cup, Rooney and Valencia are an outstanding partnership, which appears to be growing game by game.
Best wishes, Dave
Hi Rob,

I am truly envious of your library! How long have you been collecting for?

My collection is still in its infancy, and being a student means I generally have to pick up second hand titles. Do you have any recommendations for second hand stores in Canberra?

Thanks - enjoy your weekend

Noticed you liked Clockwork Orange, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a group of violent kids (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:


You seem to have significantly more overlap with my own library (though I haven't finished entering it yet) than anyone else. Shall we connect? (Though I'm not sure what that measn - I'm new here!)
