Forgive me but I'm going to have a moan. WH Smith is advertising books for Christmas. I counted at least 14 half price celebrity books (including, Kerry Katona. Yes, the ex-girl band singer, the one you see on the front of celeb magazines - either in love or out of love, drinking or not drinking, fat or on a diet. And, wait for it! “The number one bestselling author, Tabloid Superstar and ex-Glamour Girl, Katie Price” has a book out for Christmas). And there's more. There's a multitude of Cookbooks, Antique and DIY books. But where's the quality fiction? Novels that will thrill us, scare us, make us think, laugh and cry? And the quality non-fiction books? Where are the books that take us to worlds that are different to our own. Worlds we don’t see on the television, or read about in glossy magazines? Where are the life books? Books that tell us about the origins of our world; show us how our ancestors lived thousands of years ago, or more recently, during the last century? Where are the books that are not only enjoyable to read, but we learn from? Well written books with good grammar, strong plot lines and rich believable characters. Sadly, they weren't being advertised.
