I got some great books, including a surprise book from my brother which is really good - 'House of Sand and Fog' by Andre Dubus III. I also managed to get the book on the space race by the US and Russian astronaut. It is fascinating. I have found out that Yuri Gegarov's favourite book was 'The Old Man and the Sea' by Hemingway.
I also got a book by Henning Mankell and 'The Iliad'. And a copy of the complete works of Shakespeare and a DIY guide. Rather a lot of books in fact and we'll have to see which ones get read.
