Oh, you did.
Don’t worry – I’m not yet back. Just popping in with a message from the Major. His book X Marks The Spot (recently described by no less an intellectual than the British Foreign Secretary, William Hague as ‘fascinating’ – absolutely true; he’s shown me the letter) is currently freely available on Amazon Kindle.
You’ve all downloaded it three times already, but may have friends who have nothing to read and have been badgering you for months to let them know when this one comes up again. So here it is.
I’ve just checked and it’s currently at Number 55 in the ‘Top 100 Free Humour Books’. Even better, it’s at Number 6 in the Top 100 ‘Politics and Current Affairs’ – just behind A Book of Remarkable Criminals by Henry Brodribb Irving. And closing in fast on Karl Marx and his Communist Manifesto.
The Major also has another book out – Bernard to the Rescue! You can see details on the ‘Books’ page (above), but don’t go splashing out your cash. It’s rubbish – and, besides, he’ll be offering it for free before the month is out, so it would be foolish to waste 77p – or whatever that is in real money.
In the meantime, I came across the following earlier today. You may have seen it before, but if not, hopefully you’ll find it amusing/enlightening in these economically straitened times.
Something like that.
Till next time – be good!
