Poirot and Me – A charming memoir from David Suchet – Just 99p 0 comments

In the summer of 2013 David Suchet filmed his final scenes as Hercule Poirot. After 24 years in the role, he played the character in every story that Agatha Christie wrote about him (bar one, deemed unfilmable) and felt it time to bid adieu to a role and a character that changed his life.
In Poirot and Me, David Suchet tells the story of how he secured the part, with the blessing of Agatha Christie’s daughter, and set himself the task of presenting the most authentic Poirot that had ever been filmed.
David Suchet is uniquely placed to write the ultimate companion to one of the world’s longest running television series. Peppered with anecdotes about filming, including many tales of the guest stars who have appeared over the years, the book is essential reading for Poirot fans all over the world.

May I Have Your Attention Please? – The hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy stars – £1.99 0 comments

So… the story of my life.
I’ve often thought about this moment, about what it would be like to write my memoirs. I always thought it would make me feel important. It doesn’t. If anything it makes me feel a little strange.
The truth is, I should never have been this famous guy. I wasn’t the cool, clever, good-looking boy at school. But I always dreamt of it, hoped for it, longed for it: throughout school when I was disruptive, in my teens when I tried to form my own boy band and through hundreds of auditions for parts which were met with constant rejection. Until finally I co-wrote Gavin and Stacey. And my whole life changed.
This is that story. The story of how I found myself here, talking to you.

The God You Thought You Knew – Exposing the 10 Biggest Myths About Christianity – Just 96p 0 comments

The Christianity our culture rejects may not be true Christianity at all. So many people today believe they have to be good to be accepted by God, or that the Bible is just a list of do’s and don’ts, or that God is far away and unapproachable.
Instead of providing “proofs” about God and the Bible, in this book Alex provides a reason to want to know Jesus. By sharing his own story of the loneliness and alienation of his youth, Alex taps in to universal fears of rejection and loneliness. We all seek acceptance and purpose–and there’s only one solution. Learn how to be anchored in the Truth and security that comes through Christ.

Peggy and Me by Miranda Hart – A hilarious account of her life with her close companion Peggy – Just 99p 0 comments

Hello dear book browser and welcome to Peggy & Me, the story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise – fun) in the form of Peggy.
Some of you may be thinking: “a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I’m sold.” In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.
It’s been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life-changing moments and I wouldn’t have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount – not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.
Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me …

All at Sea – A memoir – A remarkable story of love and loss – Just 99p 0 comments

On a hot still morning on a beautiful beach in Jamaica, Decca Aitkenhead’s life changed for ever.
Her four-year-old boy was paddling peacefully at the water’s edge when a wave pulled him out to sea. Her partner, Tony, swam out and saved their son’s life – then drowned before her eyes.

He was a dreadlocked criminal with a history of drug-dealing and violence. No one thought the romance would last, but it did. Exploring race and redemption, privilege and prejudice, ALL AT SEA is a remarkable story of love and loss, of how one couple changed each other’s lives and of what a sudden death can do to the people who survive.

William Wilberforce: The Life of the Great Anti-Slave Trade Campaigner – Just 99p 0 comments

William Hague has written the life of William Wilberforce who was both a staunch conservative and a tireless campaigner against the slave trade.
Hague shows how Wilberforce, after his agonising conversion to evangelical Christianity, was able to lead a powerful tide of opinion, as MP for Hull, against the slave trade, a process which was to take up to half a century to be fully realised. Indeed, he succeeded in rallying to his cause the support in the Commons Debates of some the finest orators in Parliament, having become one of the most respected speakers of those times.
William Hague’s masterful study of this remarkable and pivotal figure in British politics brings to life the great triumphs and shattering disappointments he experienced in his campaign against the slave trade.
