I have recently discovered a book on horse riding written back in 1949. I am finding it very interesting in regards to what has changed and actually what has not.
Does anyone else like to read the original copies of a book, perhaps the first edition or out of print antique type? What consists as vintage to you, fifty years plus?
For anyone interested in looking at my purchase you can find various condition copies. These range from the collectable to reading copies.
You and Your Horse by Phyllis Hinton 1949 First Edition
Have you changed over to reading books on the Kindle?
I haven’t and don’t own a device capable of doing so. I like browsing the shelves, reading the back and being enticed by the art work on the front and actually handling the book.
Once I have a finished book I donate to charity or a friend and the cycle carries on. I personally feel we spend too much of our day with our eyes on a screen. We need to unplug from gadgets and get lost inside a real book.
I do like his work. I would describe it as an easy read. Sometimes funny and light hearted.
He has written numerous books but I am drawing your attention to The Number One Detective Agency series. I am up to book five now and hope to pop the others on the shelf.
I am going to watch the film. There is also the book, but not read or bought as yet. Is anyone familiar with these? It’s a fantasy science fiction and I am getting into these.
The book was written by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. Not sure when but the film aired in 1976. It is a futuristic perfect world setting with one huge flaw. You die at 30 in the film, 21 in the book. Yes I can see that being a big flaw in a world. 🙂
