Si King and Dave Myer’s book The Hairy Bikers: Blood, Sweat And Tyres: The Autobiography (11298) needs no further explanation

11287 My Brilliant Friend by Elena Farrante is a modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors - a rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends.

Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and many crates of Moldovan red wine, 11257 Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonas Jonasson's multimillion-copy bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

11273, The Dust That Falls From Dreams by Louis de Bernieres is a tale from the brief golden years of King Edward VII's reign.

The Patience of the Spider (11274) by Andrea Camilleri, is the eighth novel in the internationally popular Inspector Montalbano series. 3 more books by this popular author have also been added this month.

In 11278 East Fortune by James Runcie Jack Henderson, estranged from his ex-wife and grown-up daughters, is involved in a horrific accident.

11299 The Hand the First Held Mine by Maggie O’ Farrell is the spirited journey of a bright, tempestuous woman who finds her way from rural Devon to the centre of postwar London's burgeoning art scene.

The Girl with a Clock for a Heart 11344 is Peter Swanson’s electrifying tale of romantic noir, with shades of Hitchcock.

Calibre Dogs Blog - Chapter 4 Play


Greeting dog lovers, Hobie here. I'm a tri-coloured Border Collie chap, originally from Ireland, and I'm nearly 10. I can be a bit shy, particularly with men, but I feel reassured when carrying my beloved ball.

I like toys so I've picked out 6727 The Toy Story by Anthony McReavy and 9510 Toys by James Patterson. There's also 10787 Ian Fleming's Thunderball about some Bond chap who aspires to be a handsome hero like me.

My full name also has a literary connection as it's Hobie Hobbit! However recently I have put on a couple of kilos and have been called Mr Porkington Hobbit - how mean is that! Owing to reduced rations I am dreaming of food so 615398 Farmer Giles of Ham (JRR Tolkein) sounds a good man to know! I also like the sound of Blessed are the Cheesemakers (8048) by Susan Kate Lynch and The Snack Thief (7653) by Andrea Camilleri. Feel free to send me a food parcel!
