Nicholas Lee, cameraman for 60 minutes. For 30 years he spent this time on the road with 60 minutes and this is the hilarious and sometimes harrowing tales of his experiences. This is a well written story of life with no budget restraints, working for the most respected show and talented colleagues in some of the most unusual places in the world. I really enjoyed this book and laughed through the fun parts and cried through the sad. Well worth a read if you remember ever watching the show or just like a great travel story,

This is the second novel by Yanagihara. It is a tale of four university friends from the same college. All four move to New York to chase big careers and are all incredibly successful in each of their fields. Yanagihara describes the friendship between these men over decades marked by love loss, additiction and childhood abuse. It is truly an unforgettable read of four men's friendship with the author, spinning a horrendous tale which is unforgettable. Read it if you dare!!

This book is a fantastic new addition to our collection. It is a great "girl meets boy" novel but with a modern, unconventional twist. Frankie Rose (the main character), absoloutely loves her classic novels, but can't seem to find love with someone who has the same reading tastes as her. So, she places books on trains with a message at the end of the book, in the hope that she will meet her perfect man. This book is an easy read, with lots of funny moments as you follow Frankie on her journey.

I first saw this book advertised on TV. Nathan was being interviewed regarding his busy life and trying to cook for his young twins. Nathan is a Personal Trainer and eating healthy is essential. I instantly related to Nathan and thought it would assist my busy lifestyle and meal preperation. I found Fast Food for Fit Dad's was excellent and very helpful. It had easy to follow instructions and minimal ingredients. My husband and children absoloutely loved the meals I prepared for them, utilising the recipes in this book.

When I first read this book to my daughter we couldn't stop reading it. It was intiguing, interactive, short and very enjoyable. The illustrations were detailed with lots of colours. I would highly recommend this book to all young children and their parents.

I picked up this novel with the hopes of reading a refreshing YA series and I was blown away. Set in a magical Ancient Rome the main characters, Laia and Elias, are forced together in order to save their loved ones from the twisted commander and other forces of evil. I'm not sure what I enjoyed the most but the poetic style of writing, thought out plot and developed characters are just the beginning of what makes the high stakes series a whirlwind of emotions.
