Reading the Water is written by Dave Hughes and he does an excellent job describing how to find that 10% of water where the fish are holding rather than you waste your time fishing the 90% of water where there are no fish to be found! Dave does well in explaining the basic water types you normally find in a river like: riffles, runs, pools, dead water, etc. Mr. Hughes explains in extreme detail and easy to understand language for the beginner and advanced fly fisherman alike. He goes on to explain the different types of aquatic insects found in each type of water and why it will be found in just certain types of water over others (e.g. why certain nymphs are found primarily in the riffles and others more in pools. Dave makes it clear where the fish will be in each type of water, what insect types you will find in each type of water and what techniques works best to catch the fish in each water type. I find this an all-around comprehensive reference book for both the beginner and advanced fly fisherman filled with many tips and techniques that can use every time when out on a fishing trip! Get this book you won’t be sorry. :-)

Panzer Warfare was written by Major-General F. W. Von Mellenthin, the Chief of General Staff, Fifth Panzer Army of the German army (Wehrmacht) in the Second World War. He served in the invasion of Poland, the battle for France, in the Balkans, with the Africa Corps and in Operation Barbarossa when Russia was invaded. In the last months of the war he was given command of 9th Panzer Division, which was then engaged in the Battle of the Bulge. After been captured by the British Army on May 3, 1945 he spent two and a half years in a POW camp. After his release, Von Mellenthin emigrated to South Africa and joined Trek Airways until his retirement. Von Mellethin was also rumoured to be involved and assisted the now retired Major-general Roland De Vries in the development of mobile warfare in the old South African Defence force. He died in Johannesburg in 1997. SOLD

If you’ve got a soft spot for War history books like I do, this is one of the great books out there. The autobiography of Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf titled “It Does Not Take a Hero”. General Schwarzkopf was the commander of the allied forces in Operation Desert Storm during the first Gulf war in Kuwait and Iraq. General Schwarzkopf was born to be a soldier and took his responsibilities very serious from an early age when his father left for overseas duty in 1942 in WWII and left Norman to look after his mother and 2 sisters. Born with a natural instinct to lead he excelled in commanding his soldiers through the Vietnam war and operation Desert Storm with the total commitment of his soldiers under his command. Here are some excerpts from the book: “It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle” “It’s very rare that history grant a single individual the ability, personal charisma, moral force, and intelligence to command the respect, admiration, and affection of his entire nation.” Read this book, you will really enjoy it!

I’ve just finished reading a book with the title “Pit Bull” written by Marty Schwartz. If you are a trader and you enjoyed the classic "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator" (Which I’ve read and got the numbered, collectable edition for sale) you will love " Pit Bull" written by Marty Schwartz. This book reveals the story of a Options trader who started out as a stock analyst, then decided to leave his day job and started to trade for a living by himself. He changed his method of analysis from fundamental analysis to technical analysis and his profitable trades sky rocketed. He bought himself a seat on the American Stock Exchange and started out as a floor trader and made millions of dollars for himself on a yearly basis. He even won the U.S.A Trading Championship several times in his trading career. His trading style was mainly day trading and very rarely holding positions for more than a few hours or over night. Marty Schwartz is seen as one of the great traders of our time and you the beginner or professional trader can learn a tremendous amount about how to really trade for a profit by reading this book. I really enjoyed this sometimes funny and entertaining book and finished reading it in 4 days between breaks. Here’s a few truthful excerpts from his book: "..When the stress gets so great you think you might vomit, you should probably double your position, but only if you are then willing to use a tight stop loss.." ".. most people think that they're playing against the market, but the market doesn't care. You're really playing against yourself...Listen only to what the market is telling you now...The sole objective is not to prove you're right, but to hear the cash register ring".

Well I’m up and running! This little book store website took me a very long time to complete. I had to learn as I went along. The pictures of the books took even longer as I anticipated, but there you have it! (If some of the photos are not clear enough for you to see, please let me know, so that I can load better examples) I’ve managed to sign up with PayFast to make selling easier and more secure. I’ll keep on loading more books as I get hold of more good used books.
