Synopsis

Wilbur's Story by Donald B. Holmes

2008 is the Centennial of Wilbur Wright's key flights in France - flights that gave birth to modern aviation. It is a story little known in the English-speaking world; this 180pp, budget, B&W version of the lavishly-illustrated, full-colour first edition tells the remarkable story behind the Le Mans celebrations of 2008, and the 2009 Pau centennial of the first pilot school in the world. Includes over 150 antique French postcards; also newspaper reports and posters of these and other events of the Belle Epoque period of flightin France.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.
