I collect electronic books, the older the better. I have an interest in craft skills so have cookery books, fermentation and distillation books, engineering books etc.

Happy to swap. ;)

Copied from post in whisky and whiskeys

Hope you don't mind ED! ;)

Not all of Harry's library is archived here

The archive section is the only topic containing material.
But enough reading to get you through Xmas. :)
