December 2012 Book of the Month.
This is a wonderfully warm and humorous homage that captures the spirit of the grooviest decade ever in over a hundred pen and ink drawings by Bob Dewar. A decade when everyone (well, almost everyone) turned on, tuned in and dropped out - or at least just hung loose. Pefect for any nostalgic, still young at heart, swinger or hippy, all those cats and chicks who lived through the era as well as all those who dig the style, verve and panache of the Swinging Sixties. Bob Dewar is also the bestselling author of Soor Plooms and Sair Knees: Growing up in Scotland after the War.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Beatniks and Beehives The Swinging Sixties by Bob Dewar
The Sixties put an end to drab post-war austerity in a psychedelic explosion of colour, fashion, music, new attitudes and revolution (sexual and otherwise). From Flower Power, The Beatles, Mary Quant and G Plan furniture to marijuana, mini skirts, flush panel doors, Pan's People and the hostess trolley.
