    It has been awhile since either of you two wrote a review for us
    You know it makes sense.

    I must confess I havent read all of them but whenever I have done so it has been rewarding.

    I am also very jealous of how much you get to read

    That must've been very special. The review was obviously before my time, but the subject matter's obviously of great interest to me. Please post a link.

    I've got a couple of nearly written ones - good to see that people read the book reviews.

    Indeed, but are we talking about the same last chapter (viz. "The 1942 Ashes tour")?

    You will have more from me 'in due course' as well Archie. Just a question of getting enough time on the net - it probably needs my daughter to go away for the weekend tbh.

    Actually I'm not reading a cricket book at the moment - most unusually for me - but I have several old(ish) books that you don't have reviews for as yet and which often turn up on sites like ebay. What about David Frith's 'Fast men' and 'Slow Men' - could that work as a two in one do you think? And I want to get hold of Michael Simkins' book 'Fatty Batter' as I keep hearing good things about it - I'll let you know.

    Nabbed a copy of that last week. Not read it, yet. Stuck in Penguins Stopped Play by Harry Thompson atm. My mam says it's hilarious, though

    The Frith idea would be great. I have not heard of Fatty Batter?

    I picked up a copy of 'Grovel' looks okay, I will have to read it soon, just reading Ian Botham's latest bio
