    Finished reading Rhythm and Swing by Sir Richard Hadlee today, while it was a good read it made me realise how much better books are if they are written after the player has retired and has a bit of time to look back at his career in a retrospective way. Also realised how obsessed Hadlee was with his statistics and numbers, always thriving to improve his record.

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Picked up "Flying Stumps" by Lindwall and "15 Paces" by Davo earlier this week for $3 each. Pretty happy with that...

    Good lil second hand bookstore here in Canberra. Both are in paperback, and are rather aged and a bit worn, but not torn or damaged.

    I don't know, but will look next time I go. Frankly, I'd be surprised if the owner has a computer!

    I am interested because you can, at times pick up some great rare books at these second hand outlets.

    I'd ask Archie - I know he picks over the same places I go, and his library is massive - he might have some details to hand...

    Listening

    I imagine it is Cantys?

    They have no email or web site. There is one called Winchbooks, which is just outside of Canberra and they have a lot of cricket books www.winchbooks.com.au

    Also this place has a lot of cricket books but are a little pricey www.berkelouw.com.au

    The best place in Aust is Roger Page cricket books in Melbourne but he does not have a web site, but can locate almost any book that you want
