Sharing Christian books 06 Jun 2009
A few months ago there was a Christian book I particularly wanted to read and it struck me that someone in my church surely must own it, I just didn't know who. I then thought that it would be useful to have a website where members of a church can list books that they own and are willing to lend, such that one can search the list, contact the owner and save some money!
This has now become realit...

CS Lewis' Mere Christianity 22 Jan 2008
Fans of CS Lewis' writing, such as the Narnia books or Mere Christianity, might be interested to hear footage of the man himself talking on BBC radio back in the 40's.
A related link is Librivox.org, which provides free audiobooks from the public domain.
Kindle UK release date 16 Jan 2008
Update Oct09: Kindle is now available not just in UK but internationally! Check it out.
Update Jan09: Still no word... I think if you're desperate you might as well get an iPhone off eBay. There's some software called Stanza that you can download onto it and that's probably just as good!
When Amazon launched the Kindle eBook reader in US it was done with little fanfare. The product itself got a l...
Two degrees 06 Aug 2007
You know Facebook is getting popular when your dad joins up...
I've made a web app that uses the Facebook API to find friends that aren't on your list but should be. It's called "Two Degrees" because of the Six Degrees of Separation idea.
Two degrees uses Ajax and has been tested on Firefox2 and IE7. If your browser has an anti-phishing filter then it will take slightly longer before you see the ...
What happens to Harry Potter? 19 Jul 2007
Contains spoilers! This post is for those who aren't going to read the final installment of the Harry Potter series, Deathly Hallows, but nevertheless want to know what happens. At this point in time I don't know much about what happens either but I'm sure kind folk who are in the know will contribute in the comments section below.
Facts so far:
- Hardcover - 608 pages
- The last word in the book will...
The Children of Hurin 17 Apr 2007
It's finally out in the shops !
"Started somewhere around 1916 - 1918 by J.R.R. Tolkien, then revised several times, it has taken his son Christopher Tolkien 30 years to finally complete it and form the tale of Turin Turambar and the other offspring of Hurin of Hador for publication as an independent work. It is the first, full-length, cohesive Tolkien novel to be published since The Silmarillio...

12 Books That Changed The World 19 Feb 2007
Hmmm... I think I'm going to give this post the tag of "hack" as I'm recommending a book about 12 books. Isn't that efficient?
Read more books 13 Jan 2007
If one of your New Years resolutions was to do more reading, Daily Lit might be a site you should visit. They have a bunch of books to choose from and the innovative thing about this is that you get to read them in bitesize sections via emails, scheduled to arrive in your inbox, say, at 9am every weekday if you want. What a great idea!
LibraryThing 13 Sep 2006
LibraryThing is a social book recommendation site which, once you've catalogued the books you own, connects you with people who read the same things. This is more or less to books what Last.fm is to music.
On the subject of books, it's Banned Books Week this week. Check them out here.
Mango book club 08 Aug 2006
A few weeks ago, Mango book club sent me a parcel with a book that was apparently the Editor's choice for me. It certainly wasn't my choice. As far as I was aware, I never signed up to this book club and did not owe them £1.99 for their trouble. The bill then went up to £14.99 and I was on the verge of being referred to a debt collection agency. I found this out when I got back from my recent t...
