    Thanks Dave.

    Although perhaps not an exact synonym, I prefer 'apposite' myself.

    Now I know where NC finds all his weird and wonderful words.

    The Top 12 Cricket Books and the Top 12 Cricket Biographies do not have any individual ratings. Do you mind putting them please.

    By the way I can not find a scan for the Bill O'Reilly book anywhere on the net, I do have one, so I suppose I will have to scan it!

    I completely agree. I had already put it as 4.5 for all of them. I needed it for a purpose

    Can I give it to you here?

    Or do you need it to appear on the reviews?

    If you need it on the reviews, we will have to talk to James, as I can only change things for a short time, before they become locked, and only the boss can make changes

    Go for it Perm

    I very strongly recommend. I would have bought the lot but I have twelve of the eighteen books in that lot. Everyone of them is minimum 4 star rating as per me.

    Great chance to start a library with great books.


    You can check the prices of these books individually at Abe Books which in my experience has the biggest collection of cricket books at the best prices in the internet.

    You can give it to me here for my purpose. I do think it would be good to put it on the review site as well. Otherwise the phrase "Multiple Ratings" has no meaning. It should be "Unrated"
