We have charity stores and used book stores over here. But some how your's seem to beat out ours from my trips to the U.K. I find it hard to pass up a used book store in the U.K.

I started reading military books just before I left the mob and signed up to one of those book clubs...the ones which send you what they think you want to read and then the onus is upon you to either pay for them or to return them.  It got a bit much to be honest.  I was receiving books way ahead of the time you would have expected to have had read earlier deliveries, so I binned that.   I have read a couple by authors from my own former Corps and to be honest, none of them really hit the spot.  Some were actually quite amateurish.  I also try to avoid the books about the SAS/SBS, etc as they are all much of a muchness.   If I can get my hands on a decent book on Regimental history, conflict or a good non exaggerated personal story, I'm happy.  I tend to pick up a book and read it it from cover to cover in as few sittings as I can and if a book can have that effect upon me as far as I'm concerned it's money well spent.  I don't tend to waste money on rubbish books nowadays but it has been an expensive road.  I've learned to be a bit more selective.
