Click on the link below to read more about our chosen books for January:
1) Ashforth's Curiosities of Horseracing - a lively and easy to read book taking in the many colourful characters of horseracing. The jockeys, owners and trainers, horses and events that shaped the sport of kings.
2) My Friends who don't have Dogs - a poem with photos of pet dogs that beautifully describes what it is to own and cherish your pet... despite the muddy paws and walks in the dark.
3) Everything you wanted to know about the Countryside... but didn't dare ask - as the title suggests, this is an encyclopaedia of countryside facts on farming, agriculture, wildlife and more.
4) Racing the Wind - This powerful and beautifully-written account is the memoir of Patricia Nolan who lived in a tiny community in Cumbria and it captures the end of an era in the 1950s.
